About Phil Hampton & The Comic Academy


Phil Hampton

Hi – I’m Phil Hampton.  Welcome to The Comic Academy website, which I set up to help comic book creators, publishers and entrepreneurs build a successful business or career in the comic industry.

I’ve had a major interest in how the comic industry works ever since 1983 when I read Alan Moore’s ground-breaking articles on the industry in the UK magazine The Daredevils.

In late 2010 I gained a diploma in Personal Development Coaching.  I wanted to use my coaching skills to help comic creators and publishers, but also saw that there were very few reliable resources out there showing how they could market themselves and their work effectively (skills which are essential if you want make a living in the comic industry).  That’s when The Comic Academy was born.

Every year, I spend thousands of dollars learning cutting-edge marketing and persuasion techniques from the best marketers on both sides of the Atlantic, and mass this onto my followers and mentoring clients.  My personal development and coaching skills help inspire creators to achieve the success they deserve.

Feel free to explore the site via the menu bar at the top of the page.  My marketing and inspiration blog is read by thousands of comic creators each month.  You can also download two free inspirational reports at

Or if you’d like to ask me a query, or for further information, please get in touch with me via the Contact page.

Best wishes,

Phil Hampton
