In recent days, Brazilian artist and Marvel A-lister Mike Deodato has published personal e-mails between himself and Mauro Biselli, the editor and writer of the popular Italian comic boom Tex, as well as the details of their negotiations to work on the character – which did not go well.
The publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore has been in touch and, which not countering all he charges that Deodato made, they would like to be known that,
Contrary to what Mr. Mike Deodato jr. stated on your website, Sergio Bonelli Editore s.p.a. – the acknowledged leader of the Italian comics industry – is experiencing a time of excellent financial prosperity and, above all, never ceased to respect the creativity and effort of its artists and employees.
It may also be worth noting that Deodato is neither one of their artists nor employees. And I think it is safe to say, never will be.
