Rob Davis is a British comics artist, writer and editorial illustrator. He began self-publishing his own comic, the highly experimental SLANG, in 1989. He then moved on to work on popular British classics ROY OF THE ROVERS and JUDGE DREDD. He also worked as an illustrator and cartoonist for newspapers (including the GUARDIAN) and children’s book publishers (including Scholastic).
In 2011, Davis came up with the idea for a collective graphic novel that would showcase the talent of the UK comics scene. The result was NELSON, co-edited with Woodrow Phoenix, which was nominated for an Eisner Awards and voted Book of the Year in the British Comic Awards 2012. He then began work on a graphic novel adaptation of DON QUIXOTE, which initially appeared in two parts. THE COMPLETE DON QUIXOTE was nominated for two Eisner Awards in 2014. THE MOTHERLESS OVEN, a surrealistic coming of age story, was published in 2014. It was nominated for the Best Graphic Album Eisner Award and won Best Book at the British Comic Awards. Its sequel, THE CAN OPENER’S DAUGHTER, was published in 2016 .
