Alison Sampson

Alison Sampson is a London based architect and illustrator. The interest in design, that fuelled two decades plus of award-winning architecture work brought her to comics, and Alison's creator-owned, best-selling (and first) graphic novel, GENESIS (with Nathan Edmondson), was published by Image Comics in 2014.

Having won the Emerging Talent award at the British Comic Awards in the same year, she has worked with numerous publishers, including DC/Vertigo, Dark Horse, Boom! Studios and IDW, and now is back with Image, working on a series with Steve Niles, WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD.

She contributes to anthologies, including SPERA, CREEPY and Broken Frontier's upcoming crowdfunded book, as well as IN THE DARK, which was Harvey/ Eisner nominated in 2014 and OUTLAW TERRITORY 3, which was Harvey/Eisner nominated in the previous year.

Alison also curates and manages the massive serial architecture-meets-comics world-building project, Think of a City, a number of whose contributors will also be attending Thought Bubble.
