When did you realize you wanted to be an artist at Marvel?
MIKE DEL MUNDO: Well, as a child in the ’90s I would always blurt out, “I’m going to be a comic artist and draw the X-Men.” But I would say I made a solidified decision yeeeeeears later when I was in college for graphic design. Seeing my peers drawing my favorite Marvel characters brought me back to childhood and it gave me that good feeling; I quickly realized that design was great but drawing comics was my passion.
What was your first Marvel comic?
MIKE DEL MUNDO: My first Marvel comic was TOXIC AVENGER. I was hooked after that but the comic that really grabbed me was my first X-Men comic which was UNCANNY X-MEN #275. To this day, I still look to that book for inspiration.
