Biography

Graham Nolan started his career as a comic artist in the mid-1980's for various US comic publishers. His first long run was on Airboy, written by Chuck Dixon and published by Eclipse comics. Nolan and Dixon created seven issues of Airboy in 1987.

After this, Nolan began to frequently draw comics for DC Comics, including long runs on Power of the Atom and Hawkworld before landing a job on Detective Comics. Nolan drew Detective Comics from 1992 to 1998, scripted by Chuck Dixon.

In 1998, Nolan created and published his own comic strip, "Monster Island". When this story was reprinted as a back-up feature in the Scandinavian Phantom comic books (Fantomen and Fantomet), Nolan was also asked to provide painted Phantom covers for three issues. This, combined with the Phantom story "Death's Dark Path" which Nolan and Chuck Dixon had made previously for a trading card series, led to Nolan being offered the job as artist on the Phantom Sunday strip in 2000. Nolan quickly accepted the offer, as the character had been one of his favorites since childhood.

By the time he was offered to work with The Phantom he was already the daily and Sunday artist on another newspaper strip, "Rex Morgan, M.D.". Originally his intention had been to syndicate his own "Monster Island" strip, but when it was rejected he was offered work on "Rex Morgan" and later on "The Phantom".

Nolan pencilled, inked, lettered and colored his work on these two newspaper strips. He also filled in on the "Judge Parker" strip for a week in late 2006 when artist Eduardo Barreto was injured in a car accident in Uruguay.

In 2006, Nolan also drew a story for Moonstone Books' Phantom Annual, which was written by his former Batman-partner, Chuck Dixon.

He left the Phantom strip in 2006, with Paul Ryan taking over for him on the Sunday pages, to work on other projects. During his tenure he also wrote one Phantom Sunday story, and he has written another story for Team Fantomen.
