The Art of Mike Deodato HC

I remember I began collecting comics in the early 90's when the industry was probably at its top. Image Comics was fairly new and I really enjoyed the new, fresh comics coming out because of the incredible artwork. Among those great artists new the industry was Mike Deodato. I used to help out at a comic shop back home and I would always look at the Previews to see what was coming out in the next few months. I noticed Image Comics releasing a new series, Glory and I knew I would have to start buying this series. I really loved his style and I had to buy all his work. When he began to draw for Marvel, I picked up his new work on Thor, Wonder Woman, and the Avengers. I am fortunate enough to still have these comics and I am looking forward to picking up his collection of work from Marvel. 

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at The Art Of Mike Deodato HC, a stunning chronicle of the Marvel Architect’s life and work for the House of Ideas! Since breaking into the industry in the early 1990s, Mike Deodato has established himself as one of comics’ most celebrated superstar artists. Now, in one oversized tome, follow Deodato’s artistic evolution from his iconic early work on Avengers and Thor through his now legendary successes on Amazing Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk, Thunderbolts, Dark Avengers, and much, much more.

"Since I was a kid, I'd loved art books collecting my favorite 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 honored."

Also catch rare insights in the creative process from many of Deodato’s collaborators, including writers Mike Benson, Charlie Huston and Marvel Editor In Chief Axel Alonso! From Thor’s clash with the World Engine to the fall of Norman Osborn, relive the greatest artistic triumphs of this superstar artist, only in The Art Of Mike Deodato HC!
