Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Paul Murry (25 November 1911 – 4 August 1989, USA) was a cartoonist and comics artist. He is best known for his Disney comics, although he also drew “Woody Woodpecker” and various gag cartoons.
His career began as an animator at Walt Disney Studios, where also drew some of the newspaper-strip adaptations.
In 1946, he left the studio and went to work at Western Publishing drawing Disney characters in comic books, which he continued to do until 1984.
Western was publishing as Dell Comics at the time and Murry’s first comic book was their “Four Color” #129, featuring ‘Uncle Remus’ stories. (The Western brand changed to Gold Key Comics in 1962.)
From the 1950s to the 1970s, Murry was a preeminent artist on Mickey Mouse stories, particularly those featuring Goofy. These often appeared as serials in “Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories” and “Mickey Mouse Magazine”. He was the first to draw ‘Super Goof’.
