Will Volley studied illustration at the University of Brighton before working as a storyboard artist in London. His graphic short story The Seagull was published in the anthology Negative Burn by Image comics for whom he has pencilled and inked stories by Phil Hester (The Atheist) and collaborated with artist John McCrea. For Classical Comics, he has drawn graphic novel adaptations of J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls and Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, which won the Association of Educational Publishers’ Distinguished Achievements Award in 2009 and was turned into an interactive comic animation.
Volley’s many influences include the comic book creators Will Eisner, David Mazzucchelli and David Lloyd, the playwrights David Mamet and Harold Pinter, the filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, and the novelists Honore de Balzac and Emile Zola.
The Opportunity was published by Myriad in March 2016. Will lives in Worthing.
