Space Cops: Comics Creator/Writer David Gallaher

GL

Comics Creator and Writer David Gallaher got his first job in the industry by faxing a six-panel comics version of his resume to Marvel.

That happened at the beginning of a career that would continue to leverage technology, inventiveness, and hard work towards the co-creation (with Steve Ellis) of comics like Only Living Boy, High Moon, Box 13 and others. In 2015, Gallaher and Ellis also worked for DC Comics on Green Lantern Corps: Convergence.

David and I had a great conversation on this latest episode of Coffee with Creatives — which represents yet another instance wherein a connection began online (Twitter) before graduating to an IRL meet-up.

Among many other topics, here’s what we covered:

  • Participating in the early days of web comics
  • How a background in theatre helped David’s comics writing
  • The benefits of prioritizing productivity over perfectionism
  • How he ended up writing Green Lantern Corps for DC
  • Engineering “holy sh*t” moments
  • Why David wakes up at 4AM
  • The importance of working at your own pace
  • Why it’s crucial to replenish the well

If you like what David has to say, check out his work. And let him know on Twitter!

As reminders, you can also subscribe to Coffee with Creatives on iTunes and support the podcast on Patreon. Both actions help the show (and me) out a bunch. A. Bunch.
