Breaking the Rules of the Comic Art World with @fionastaples

To see a first glimpse of Marvel’s new Thor cover — and for more amazing comic art—follow @fionastaples on Instagram. For general geekery and awesomeness from Comic-Con San Diego, check out the #SDCC hashtag.

Thor is becoming a woman—and Fiona Staples (@fionastaples) is the artist charged with bringing the iconic comic book hero to life on the cover of Marvel’s groundbreaking issue.

Fiona’s Instagram photos are a comic book fan’s dream, showcasing special teasers from cool, upcoming projects (like Thor), but the Alberta-born artist also uses her account to share beautiful in-progress sketches featuring well-known faces both within the comic world and beyond.

Fiona joins other artists at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014, a massive community event that is becoming more and more gender-inclusive every year. As a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry, Fiona considers herself an important advocate for well-developed female characters.

"I think comics have a bit of a reputation for tacky and exploitative images of women,” she says. “But that’s becoming a thing of the past.”
