Mike was one of my favourite artists on Thor during the 90's and he was a big influence of my work during the time, especially his first 4 issues of Worldengine # 491-494.
The art completly blew me away at the time.

I'd love to see a rendition of the new Thor by him, as he always drew the character with such power and energy even though he did draw the hair too long.

I think his style could fit the book.

thoughts ?

Mike Deodato is one of my favourite Artists, his first run on the Hulk IMO was great, him and Dale Keown and Ron Garney when he's on the ball draw a great Hulk!

Mike's art though on Spider-Man was excellent. He really is a top artist and he would draw an excellent Thor IMO.

BTW I have the Avengers FCBD here for you adey and am ready to do whatever. Let me know.

Yeah, I agree...his Thor was excellent and my favourite cover was the first issue which he started on: Thor # 491

There was just something really dramatic and hopless about that particular cover that completely threw me. Thor dying from a dieseas ? Being cast out from Asgard ( again ). Odin being a complete and total
bastard. That first issue was just epic for me.

Well as long as he doesn't design any of the costumes I'd be fine with his art. That S&M costume was just wrong.
Coipel and Marko are doing fine with the designs.

His art has changed and improved by leaps and bounds since his first run on Thor -- and Hulk for that matter. Unbelievable stuff!

He is one of the top artists no doubt, but I much prefer the style he has used in the last few years on Dark Avengers and Thunderbolts rather then the one he used back in the nineties. That one was a bit too generic, but the current one is top notch.

But keep in mind he loves his heavy shadows and I have a feeling some people wouldn't be too keen on that in a Thor book.

Only this one wasn't a hit. Seriously, the chains I never understood and the helmet missing was a BIG factor in my disgust over it.

...long as he doesn't draw the costume he did for his original run. For me, ideally, it would have to be either the original look, or at least one of these -

And for my money, I'd love to see John Romita, Jr. take another stab at Thor someday -
