Today at robot6, the kind mingdoyle and rachelandmiles allowed the blog to share a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the new Rachel and Miles X-Plain The X-Men podcast’s quirky and eye-catching pinup.
Loved learning about Doyle’s interest in John Byrne’s iconic work, which served as inspiration for the piece.
Quantum and Woody #6 is out today! Buckle up, my sweet babies.
Andrew MacLean and Darak Tracy talk to Ming Doyle about her art, working on “Marra,” and life living and working with another artist, Neil Cicierega, creator of Potter Puppet Pals and other hilarious insanities.
I sat down with Jamie S. Rich for an in-depth discussion of my influences and aims in FROM THE GUTTERS, ep 8!
The Carol Corps issue!
Today the solicits went out for Captain Marvel # 17, a special 40-page oversize issue! Above is the finalized version of the cover.
This issue is meant to be a celebration of all things Captain Marvel, so I knew from the start that the Carol Corps needed to make an appearance on the cover. It’s rare that you find so much raw enthusiasm for a comic book character. It’s been fantastic to see men,women and children alike adorned in Carol wear online and at conventions. It’s a testament to the house that Kelly Sue, Steve Wacker and Sana Amanat built.
I think of this cover as a thank you for that support.
Viva la Corps!
I just love this cover so much :)
I’m in the bottom right, standing guard over Pizza Dog, and my boyfriend Neil has got my back! Love this beautiful cover, and love the fun references and cameos from our friends. You did the Captain extra proud with some of the most beautiful covers in the game, Joe! :D
Mara #5 is out tomorrow! Pick it up at your local comic shop or on comiXology!

Everything’s on the table as far as the military’s position on Mara, but who’s the one with the nuclear option? How much power can one woman hold before the world says “enough”?
The only video collaboration my boyfriend Neil and I have worked on together so far. His song and video, my lettering!
I’ll be at Phoenix Comicon, May 23rd - 26th, Table #2214. Looking forward to my first trip to Arizona!
No pre-commissions, but I’ll be taking commissions at the show on a first come, first served basis, and I’ll have prints, totes, and thoughts on Star Trek for anyone who comes by! :)
As superstar athlete Mara Prince’s superpower manifestation is caught on live TV, her life rapidly starts to spiral out of control. The media descends like vultures. Her handlers go into spin mode. The footage is seen around the world, and this young woman, who only hours ago was the darling of pop culture, is now being slammed and ridiculed for being a fraud and a liar. But the more she tries to fight back, the only thing she’s doing is escalating the problem. A sci-fi take on real world superheroes by the powerhouse team of BRIAN WOOD, MING DOYLE and JORDIE BELLAIRE!
Here’s one of my favorite panels from the issue along with the cover. You can preview or buy Mara #2 right over here.
“Brian left most of the stylistic details up to me, but early on he threw a lot of fun keywords my way, like “supercities,” “blimps,” and “Starship Troopers,” which I was instantly all over. I haven’t had the opportunity to draw anything on the scale of this story before, so whenever I get to a panel in the script that says something like “futurecity gridlock,” I just have so much fun.”
Ming Doyle—discussing her new miniseries with Brian Wood, Mara—in this week’s Talking Comics with me.
My “Experience Creativity” ad from Image Comics, just in time for Mara’s debut!
Here’s a preview of MARA, available today at your local comic shop or digitally on comiXology! I’m really pleased to be working on my first miniseries with such an awesome creative team. Seriously, they are wizards, so I hope you guys enjoy!
Acclaimed creator BRIAN WOOD (The Massive, DMZ, Demo, Northlanders) and brilliant newcomer MING DOYLE (The Loneliest Astronauts, Fantastic Four, Girl Comics) bring you MARA, the story of an especially gifted woman in a sports-and war-obsessed future. Young Mara Prince is at the top of the world, a global celebrity in a culture that prizes physical achievement above all else. After she manifests supernatural abilities on live TV, she becomes famous all over again but for the worst reasons. Integrating themes of superpowers, celebrity worship, corporate power, feminism, and political brinksmanship, MARA takes a classic genre to new places.
