gegallas:

Many thanks to Robert Mitchell Jr. for his enthusiastic reviews of The Poet and the Flea and The First Reich! It was wonderful meeting him at D.C. Zinefest and I look forward to reading his zines too. :)

Some of the ‘zines I picked up at DC Zinefest

Now that I’ve had a chance to sit down and actually read the zines I picked up at DC Zinefest last weekend, here are some quick reviews (clockwise from upper left in the photo).

 Mt. Olyphant is a graphic novel in eight parts — only the first installment is available just yet — written by Zack Ziemba and illustrated by Christine Skelly.  This is the tale of Paul Tomarchio, a mythology scholar who wakes up in a mental hospital  only to find that the doctors, patients and staff are all figures from Greek mythology.  Is Paul frightfully insane, or is he seeing the machinery behind the curtain of reality?  The production value is perfect and professional, the writing is skilled and original, and the artwork is inspired.  I was blown away!  If the quality holds up until the…

Here is what RT said about me: “It’s always inspiring to see folks in their 20s emerge into the adult world with lots of energy and verve. Screenwriter, graphic novelist, alternative press enthusiast, Ms. Gallas certainly qualifies as an emerging writer/artist to watch.”

Seven Things About G. E. Gallas

1. I consider myself a “radiant pessimist” — I hope for the best, but expect the worst.

2. I was born in Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D. C., not far from Glen Echo Park.

3. I studied cello for about 12 years, beginning at age 4.

4. I studied Latin for 3 years, but really don’t remember any of it. However, I don’t think it was a waste since I developed a love for etymology and for Robert Graves’s I, Claudius.

5. I have a very eclectic taste in music, ranging from Japanese rock to classical opera.

6. Unlike my older sister, I have a very good sense of direction. I’m not particularly good at reading maps, but if I’ve gone someplace once, I’ll always remember how to get there again.

7. I have a very stubborn and very naughty Shiba Inu (柴犬) named Nikki. Here’s a photograph:

December 9th, 2012

Today, I was nominated again for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I’d like to thank Shohpie (shohpie.wordpress.com) very very very much for nominating me!

Here is what Shohpie said about me: “I honestly don’t know how I came across G. E. Gallas’ blog but I’m glad I did. She’s currently promoting her new graphic novel about William Blake called the Poet and the Flea. She also made me aware of Awkward Shelby, which is one of the best internet comics I’ve ever come across- really silly and simple, just the way I like it. She’s been awarded by other bloggers for her blog twice this month already, and since these things usually come in 3′s why don’t I just round it off here eh?”
