Mike Deodato celebrated at Marvel

By
Marvel Comics has unveiled The Art of Mike Deodato.

The hardcover collection chronicles the career of the Brazilian artist born Deodato Taumaturgo Borges Filho, which began in the 1990s on titles including Wonder Woman, Avengers and The Mighty Thor.

Known for his photo-realistic work and dynamic layouts, Deodato has more recently worked on Thunderbolts, Dark Avengers and the ongoing Secret Avengers.

"Since I was a kid, I'd loved art books collecting my favourite artists. More recently, I've been thrilled to see works of comic book artists taken more seriously," said Deodato.

"To be featured among talents such as Joe Quesada and Marko Djurdjevic in a book like this makes me awfully happy. My dad, who bought me all my early Frazetta hardcovers, was beaming with pride when I told him Marvel was doing one about me. I feel honoured."

The Art of Mike Deodato will be written by John Rhett Thomas and feature contributions from Charlie Huston, Mike Benson and Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. It will be released on July 6.
