Marvel alum Takeshi Miyazawa returns to Japan, publishes first manga
It looks like Marvel alum artist Takeshi Miyazawa is returning to his family’s roots. The Toronto-born artist moved back to his family’s native Japan several years ago where Miyazawa has been working diligently to break into the manga industry. After years of hard work — he’s done it, and on Feb. 26 denizens of Japan can buy Miyazawa’s manga debut Lost Planet: Bound Raven.
For years Miyazawa worked as an artist for Marvel Comics, drawing Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, Uncanny X-Men and Runaways amongst other minis and guest issues. The artist’s last major work in American comics was 2009’s Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #8.
There’s no word yet on any American publishers securing the rights for Miyazawa’s manga, but here’s to hoping!
