Mike Deodato To Leave Marvel After 24 Years

The long-time Marvel Comics artist Mike Deodato has revealed his plans to leave the company, according to a Facebook post. Following his upcoming run on Savage Avengers with writer Gerry Duggan, Deodato will dedicate himself to creator-owned work.

When I was a boy I dreamt to one day become a Marvel artist. I grew up reading Avengers, Captain America, Spider-Man and, since my father was already an artist in Brazil, I decided I would do the same, but drawing the heroes that made my childhood so great.

I succeeded.
And I’ve been living my dream with those characters for 24 years!

I’ve loved every second of it.

Now I’m 56 and I have a new dream: to be a creator-owned artist. I wanna dedicate my full time to create my own books and characters.

Deodato’s time at Marvel saw him working on titles including Thor, Elektra, Incredible HulkAmazing Spider-Man, AvengersNew AvengersDark Avengers, Thanos, Infinity Wars, and Old Man Logan. Or pretty much every title.
