Jordie Bellaire is an American comic book colorist who works for comic book publishers Marvel, Valiant, and Image. She is the colorist for the Star Wars: Princess Leia comic mini-series,[1] and co-created the mini-comic SaBBotage with Chris Eliopoulos.

Bellaire has also colored Pretty Deadly, The Manhattan Projects, Moon Knight, Magneto, Nowhere Men, Zero, and Hawkeye, among other titles.[1][2] In 2014, Bellaire was nominated for an Eisner award for Best Cover Artist for her collaboration on The Wake with Sean Murphy. She also that year received a nomination for Best Coloring for her work on various titles,[3] which she won.[4]

Bellaire is credited with starting the "Comics are for everybody" initiative to make the comic book community more inclusive and compassionate.[5] She was also the catalyst for comic book fans to declare January 24 "Colorist Appreciation Day." The day was inspired by a Tumblr Bellaire wrote in early 2013 entitled "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." Directed at an unidentified fan convention, she said colorists are important but receive little recognition: "Colorists are the unknown amazing backup singer that makes [sic] every track awesome."[6] She currently lives in Ireland.
