Mike’s intro/bio: My name is Mike Del Mundo aka Deadly Mike (a name manifested from my bboy days) but I prefer being called Mike. I mainly do pretty covers for Marvel Comics and dabble in interiors once in a while. I also do illustration and Design work mainly for advertising and editorial. (Mike was also nominated for a Joe Shuster Award in 2011 for his 2010 covers).
What was your involvement in comics in 2011?
Covers for: Generation Hope #6. Thor Goes to Hollywood Variant covers, Amazing Spider-Man #666, 678, 679, Spider-Island: I Love New York #1, Thunderbolts #166, 167, Venom Variant Covers, I am Captain America Variant
Plus a 7 page story for Fear Itself: The Home Front #3
What was the highlight of the year for you re:
(a) comics publishing in general?
Definitely the Spider Island Covers and the Fear Itself: Home Front #3 7 Pager
(b) comics by Canadian creators?
Did up a cool cover for Freelance Blues #1
Was 2011 a good year for you?
It definitely was, being part of 2 big story arcs was a big deal and hopefully next year will be bigger!
Was 2011 a good year for comics?
Yeah definitely, DC 52 was dope but honestly Uncanny X-Force made 2011 for me hands down.
Part of being on the scene is exhibiting at public events. Which Canadian ones (if any) did you support in 2011 and how do you feel they went for you? Did you exhibit at any American events?
I attended all of the Fan Expo’s this year for the first time. This was really my first year tackling the convention circuit so it was a thrill and everyone from the promoters to the artists were really cool.
I attended Wizard World which was equally a good Con also.
Did a small signing/Sketch day for Free Comic Day at Heroes World. Always good to support the local homies!
I took a train ride to NYCC also which was pretty awesome, New Yoooorkk!
What do you have coming up in 2012?
At the moment, gotta keep my lips sealed but yeah, I’m also getting married. Yay!
Any final comments on 2011?
It was a great year and I’m truly blessed to be where I am. It’s still a grind but I love it and I cherish every ounce of it. Happy 2011 Peeps!!
