Early work

At age five, Doran won an art contest sponsored by the Walt Disney Company. [11] Doran created her comic book series, A Distant Soil, at age twelve. [12]

Doran landed her first work for an advertising agency at age fifteen. [13] She attended Christopher Newport University and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and used her professional works for curriculum credit. Science fiction artist Frank Kelly Freas was her mentor, and she apprenticed with him in the early 1980s. [14] [ non-primary source needed ] [15]

She broke into the comic book industry when still a teenager, scouted by Tom Long for his fanzine Graphic Showcase. [16] Long hired Doran to draw a revival of the 1940s character Miss Fury. Underage Doran quit the assignment due to its adult content. [13] [17] [ non-primary source needed ] She also contributed illustrations to the Hugo Award nominated fanzine Lan's Lantern. [18]

A Distant Soil was published in fanzines as early as 1979, then scouted by The Donning Company Starblaze imprint before it was contracted by WaRP Graphics. [19] Doran left the company after nine issues due to an acrimonious dispute with WaRP, [20] which attempted to claim copyright and trademark on her work. [21] [22] [23] The WaRP version of the story has never been reprinted despite its unusual all-pencil style, and Doran's ownership of the publishing rights.

Career

Doran discarded the 300 pages of work she did at Warp, and rewrote and redrew the entire A Distant Soil story from scratch, first with Donning, then as a self-publisher. A 1000-page long-form comics narrative, it has been published by Image Comics since 1996. It sold more than 700,000 copies in multiple printings. [24] The production archives were destroyed by the printer, and an extensive restoration process brought the series back to publication in 2013. [13]

Lecture venues include the Smithsonian Institution, The Singapore Writers Festival, the Comics Masterclass in Sydney, Australia, and the Maryland Institute College of Art. [41] She spoke at CREATE: Protecting Creativity from the Ground Up at the Newseum in Washington DC, with Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, Rick Carnes President of the Songwriters Guild of America, musician Suzanne Vega, and other artists and technology policy specialists.
