When I saw Clark and Lois 4ever seven years ago, I knew Ming Doyle was going to be something. Ming started out on various anthologies like Jennifer’s Body (BOOM! Studios), Popgun (Image Comics), and doing a weekly webcomic with Kevin Church called The Loneliest Astronauts. The story is basically what if Steve Martin and John Candy from Trains, Planes and Automobiles were stuck in distant space with no way to get back to Earth. Every week that went by the duo became better storytellers and gave more depth to the story. Due to scheduling conflicts the series ended in January 2012. Shortly after the cancellation, Ming and Church co-created created a Star Trek fan fiction web comic called Boldly Gone. The series lives on but the art duties were handed down to Bruce Mcckindale.
She used to host a snazzy podcast with Alexa Rose called Make Believers. They discussed what they saw on Netflix that weekend, fashion tips, music and books they were into, and gave listeners mixed drink recipes that were named after comic book characters.
Her prolific webcomic work seized the attention of the industry and landed her on a Girl Comics anthology that featured the Women of Marvel. Doyle was recently partnered up with Brian Michael Bendis to pencil Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite Comic. This past December Brian Wood, Jordie Bellaire and Ming debuted a six-part comic called Mara at Image Comics.
Ming’s one of the most prolific artists in the last decade and she has a bright future ahead of her.
