Adam Murphy is an award-winning comics artist, writer and illustrator.
He brings history and folklore to life for readers of all ages through humour, extensive research and an ongoing curiosity about what makes people tick.
He is the co-creator (with wife and creative partner Lisa Murphy) of the comics series CorpseTalk, which originally appeared in The Phoenix, a weekly kids’ comics magazine in the UK. CorpseTalk has since been collected and published as an ongoing series of books which have twice been nominated for the Blue Peter Book Awards (the first comic book ever to do so).
His other co-created comics series Lost Tales (also with Lisa) has also been nominated for a Blue Peter Book Award, and was the winner of the British Comics Awards Young People’s category in 2016.
He holds a graduate degree in Computer Graphics from DePaul University, and a bachelors in Human Sciences from Oxford.
