Adam and Lisa Murphy are an award-winning husband-and-wife comics-making team. They bring history and folklore to life for readers of all ages through humour, extensive research and an ongoing curiosity about what makes people tick. They are the creators 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). They are also the creators of the comics series Lost Tales, which 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.
