Carol M. Burrell is a cartoonist and the editorial director of the Graphic Universe imprint of Lerner Publishing Group.

A native New Yorker, Burrell is an alumna of Cornell University, where she majored in Classics. She has also lived in Wales and Italy.

In 2005, she launched her webcomic SPQR Blues (as Klio), an historical drama that takes place in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. Most of the characters are based on the actual inhabitants of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, whose names are known from graffiti, inscriptions, and the records of a notorious (and unresolved) ancient lawsuit. She was nominated for a 2008 Glyph Awards Rising Star Award.

In 2008, she started working at Graphic Universe, where she has worked with such creators as Trina Robbins, Joëlle Jones, Dylan Meconis, and Alitha Martinez.

As an artist, she cites Leonardo da Vinci, Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant, and Elfquest by Richard and Wendy Pini as her three biggest influences.
