Equipped with both a Mjolnir and her trusty art supplies, artist Ming Doyle successfully battled the masses at Boston Comic Con in true Norse God fashion. Known for her unique redesigns of superheroes (as featured on Project: Rooftop) and her contributions to Comic Book Tattoo, Jennifer’s Body, PopGun, Girl Comics, and her webcomics series The Loneliest Astronauts (with Kevin Church), Doyle pulled together her own stylish take on Thor whilst taking up residence in Artist Alley.
When Doyle wasn’t busy hammering out commission after commission for the Boston crowd, I spoke with her about fashion, superhero makeovers, and the mechanics of her “Thorset.”
CA: Are there any characters in particular that you think are in dire need of a makeover?
MD: Oh my goodness, Gambit. I’m not saying it’s the magenta, because magenta in and of itself isn’t a red flag. Just maybe think out the placement a bit more. Does a thief really need a smothering magenta turtleneck dickie with diamond spiderweb patterns on it? And a trench coat? Both of those things, together? And a cowl that covers everything but his glorious hair and face? So many questions.
