Latest Comic Guest Announcement - TAKESHI MIYAZAWA

Recommended Posts

Artist: Ms Marvel; Spider-Man loves Mary Jane; Robotech: Invasion

ALTHOUGH they didn't cross paths until six years after he made his professional debut, Mary Jane Watson played a significant role in Takeshi Miyazawa's career.

The Canadian artist first encountered Spider-Man's girlfriend two years after he began working for Marvel, when he drew 2004's Mary Jane four-parter. He reunited with her for the four issues of the following year's Mary Jane: Homecoming and then illustrated the first 15 issues of 2006's Spider-Man loves Mary Jane.

Prior to Mary Jane, Miyazawa had been producing covers and contributions to various of the House of Ideas' anthologies while, in 2004, also illustrating Uncanny X-Men #434 and issues #11 and 12 of Runaways, a series he returned to for another couple of issues in 2005 and again three years later for a three-issue run. He also drew the five issues of 2004's Robotech: Invasion for DC's WildStorm imprint.

Before migrating to Marvel, the artist – who made his professional debut writing and drawing an eight-pager for the 1998 first issue of Slave Labor Graphics' Love In Tights – had drawn Fanboy Entertainment's 2000 three-parter Sidekicks as well as the Sidekicks: The Substitute one-shot that followed from Oni Press in 2002.

Much of Miyazawa's output since 2007 has been confined to covers, pin-ups and contributions to Marvel anthologies but he has found time to draw 2008's Avengers Fairy Tales #3, Incredible Hercules #126 and Secret Invasion: Runaways/Young Avengers three-parter. Two years later he illustrated Black Widow & the Marvel Girls #4 and Ultimate Spider-Man #7 and 8.

Taking a break from his Marvel assignments, in 2011, Miyazawa wrote and drew the two issues of Lost Planet Bound Raven. Based on Capcom's Lost Planet video game franchise, it was published by Japan's Dengeki Comics.

Returning to the House of Ideas the following year he worked on Generation Hope#16 and 17 before going off to draw 2013's Code Monkey save World four-parter for Pakman Comics. After that in 2014 came a three-issue run [#6-8] on Valiant's Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and then, a year later, three issues [#13-15] of Ms Marvel.

Tag-teaming with Adrian Alphona, Miyazawa is now the regular artist on Ms Marvel, which was recently been relaunched by Marvel.
