Darryl Cunningham studied at Leeds College of Art and lives in Yorkshire. He is now a full-time cartoonist, but he has also worked as a health care assistant on an acute psychiatric ward which informed and inspired his acclaimed first book of factually-based comics, Psychiatric Tales (Blank Slate, 2010). His second book of graphic journalism, an explanation of climate change, the moon landing, evolution and other subjects, Science Tales, published by Myriad in 2012, was shortlisted in the Best Book category at the British Comics Awards 2012. His latest graphic investigative book, Supercrash: How to Hijack the Global Economy, was published to acclaim by Myriad in October 2014, won the ‘Best Writer – Independent’ category at the Broken Frontier Awards 2014, and was on the New York Times Bestseller list when published in 2015 by Abrams as The Age of Selfishness. His work is published in The Art of Saving a Life, a global resource by renowned artists to encourage vaccination, sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. His new book Graphic Science, to be published by Myriad in October 2017, is a series of graphic essays on overlooked, sidelined, excluded, or discredited men and women who have been or are key figures in scientific discovery.
