Fortunately, things have changed, dramatically. With the advent of social media, particularly Instagram, comic book artists can share sneak peeks at what they are working on, bringing their admirers closer than ever. Here are 10 of the most popular comic book artists on Instagram.
- Rafael Albuquerque. For multi-faceted artist Rafael Albuquerque, Instagram provides a platform to not only connect with those who love his work but with it he can give the public a good look at all of the facets that his work entails. This includes drawings from his American Vampire comics to the photography of his travels. Now, readers can feel closer to the artist than they ever were.

- Fabio Moon. If you like not only cartoons but cartooning and cartoonists, you will love Fabio Moon, who practically chronicles his whole life on his Instagram page.

Fabio is just as likely to show you a picture of him working as he is showing a picture of his work. Add into that the treat of seeing pictures of how a cartoon comes to life, it’s an education in itself. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.
- Michael Avon Oeming. Michael Oeming’s Instagram page has always been an artistic extravaganza, but since he teamed up again with his old collaborator, Brian Michael Bendis, the Instagram page of these two has exploded with new life, particularly about their new venture, The United States of Murder Inc., which is heavy on gunplay, good news for those who are big into that. And if you happen to mix in with that samples of other projects that these two are working on, you are likely to be in for a real treat.
- Ryan Ottley. If your idea of cartoon art is the classics along the line of Spiderman and others, Ryan Ottley’s take on his craft is sure to delight you. Not only will you get your fill of these characters and many more, but you will also come to appreciate a renewed intensity that he delivers with the striking headshots of these characters.

Every post gains thousands of likes from his followers and it’s all there for your enjoyment.
- Rod Reis. Are you looking for an artist on Instagram that is striking for its beauty as well as its uniqueness, Rod Reis is the name you need to check out.

An artist’s reputation stands or falls on the quality of his work. That’s an easy idea to agree with. On the other hand, it’s almost a natural human frailty to see past the work, especially to appreciate that work, and with the social media, especially such a visual medium as Instagram, an artist can not only better promote his work and himself, but readers become friends as well as admirers of the work in the short run as well as the long run.
