Dan Greenfield: What’s your Secret Origin?
David Gallaher: I was born in Hawaii… or was I? I may or may not have been a part of secret government experiments. I may or may not have escaped from a government facility. I may or may not have gotten handcuffed to the steering wheel of my car. I will say this … I’m a man of mystery and I live an adventurous lifestyle filled with danger.
What are you working on now?
Well, I just finished Convergence: Green Lantern Corps for DC Comics, which was a real hoot. Today, I’m breaking apart Only Living Boy #7 and looking at some stuff for new High Moon stories.
What’s your favorite convention memory?
Man … that’s tough. There are so many … but winning the Harvey Award for High Moon surrounded by all of my friends was a really emotional event.
What’s the first comic book you ever got? Do you still have it?
The first comic I started collecting was West Coast Avengers #38, where the team battles the Defiler — a Glenn Danzig-esque super-baddie. It did everything that an inventory/fill-in story needed to do. It filled me in on who the characters were, while getting me stoked for the next issue. Yup. I still have a copy.
What comics do you recommend right now?
Well, Girls With Slingshots — the webcomic series by Danielle Corsetto is wrapping up — and what an incredibly tearful and amazing goodbye to characters that I’ve known for the last decade. I’ve also been following EGOs by Stuart Moore and Gus Storms, Secret Identities by Jay Faerber, Brian Joines and Ilias Kyriazis, and really anything Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray put out. Oh … and The Bowery Boys by Corey Levine.
