Paul Murry (November 25, 1911, Saint Joseph, Missouri — August 4, 1989, Palmdale, California) was an American cartoonist and comics artist. He is best known for his Disney comics, which appeared in Dell Comics and Gold Key Comics from 1946 to 1984.
Like many Disney comic book artists Murry started his career working at the Walt Disney Studios. During his time there he was an assistant to legendary animator Fred Moore. In the 1940s, Murry worked on Disney newspaper strips, including the Sunday Uncle Remus and His Tales of Brer Rabbit strip from the first installment on October 14, 1945 through July 14, 1946. After leaving the studio in 1946 he began to work for Western Publishing doing stories featuring the Disney characters. Dell Four Color 129 (1946) featuring three Uncle Remus stories penciled by Murry was the first comic book containing his artwork.
He is best known for his rendition of Mickey Mouse and associated characters. This includes serials starring Mickey and Goofy in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories and Mickey Mouse Magazine. Many of these serials were written by Carl Fallberg. Murry also drew such characters as Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge, Brer Rabbit, The Sleuth, and others. The Phantom Blot and Super Goof comic books contained many Murry stories.
