Stuart Immonen has confirmed to Newsarama that he is taking a break from comics industry - but he isn't necessarily done with comic books completely.

This comes following a statement from his longtime inker Wade von Grawbadger saying that Immonen was "retired" after this week's Amazing Spider-Man #800 - but as Immonen tells Newsarama, the door isn't completely closed.

"My exclusive agreement with Marvel wound down some time ago. Everyone involved is happily still on good terms," Immonen told Newsarama. "As to the rest, I have no immediate plans; if the right project with the right collaborators came along, I would of course consider it. For the moment however, Kathryn and I are enthusiastically devoting our time and energy to non-work matters."

Immonen's creator-owned series Empress (with writer Mark Millar) was optioned for a feature film in 2015, and his OGN Sebastian X (with writer Michaelangelo La Neve) is in development as a movie with director Martin Campbell.

Both Stuart and Kathryn Immonen are scheduled for a signing Wednesday evening for Amazing Spider-Man #800 at Toronto's the Beguiling.
