This guy has just left Marvel after 5 years. He announced this 2 weeks ago on his facebook and had this message for Marvel
5 years and it’s finally over. 2 months ago I turned in my early termination for my Marvel Exclusive contract. It’s over. No more superheroes, no more sad men in tight clothes, no more covers, at least for a long while. :) I can’t believe it’s over. After 300 painted covers, countless redesigns, 10 issues of interior art I can finally close this chapter of my career and focus on SIXMOREVODKA with all my strength and energy. I feel relief. And I feel like things are brighter than they’ve ever been. Thanks to Marvel for the great 5 years. It taught me a lot, but now it’s time to move on. :D ahhhhhhhhh

He then had this to say, very inappropriately, at the Marvel 'Team Spirit' talk at Fan Expo today.....
"They never put me with any writers that I liked,” before launching into a tirade about Marvel and ripping into writer JMS, whom he said writes “like toilet paper"
He then complained about not getting paid by the hour and having to redo work because Marvel Editors couldn't make up their mind. One example he mention was the design of Lady Bullseye, which he did countless designs for they seemed to randomly pick one. He went on this rant throughout the talk and even cut Jonathan Hickman off at times.
Mark Waid on twitter had this to say " Dear #MarkoDjurdjevic : you will not be missed."
On one side I can see his point, but he totally went about this the wrong way.
He's a fantastic artist but......
