Monica Gallagher

After interviewing Monica Gallagher last year at New York Comic Con, ComicsVerse got the chance to talk to the indie comic creator again at the convention this past October. Last time, Monica caught us up on her autobiographical comic BOOBAGE; this time, she fills us in on what she’s been up to since.

WATCH: Here’s our interview at NYCC 2015 with lots of BOOBAGE!

The first time we met with Monica, we heard about BOOBAGE and what drew readers to the relatable, body-positive comic, as well as plans for a Kickstarter to collect her webcomic BONNIE N. COLLIDE, NINE TO FIVE. Now, Monica informs us that her Kickstarter was a success, and fans can now own BONNIE N. COLLIDE, NINE TO FIVE in print. Presented in short strips, this webcomic follows a roller-girl at her mundane day job where her roller derby life continuously crashes through. BONNIE N. COLLIDE, NINE TO FIVE is still ongoing until the next collection Monica can consolidate and is released twice a week.

In addition, another one of Monica’s comics released since we last spoke is OUT IN THESE WOODS, a mini autobiographical comic about horror movies. Monica is a frequent creator of autobiographical works, and she was more than willing to give us a look into what it’s like to tell these stories in the comics medium. She also gives us insight into the process of compiling short strips into a larger collection, as well as the differences between writing webcomics and longform comics. Her eclectic art style draws in lots of requests for sketches, and to round off our interview, Monica divulges a weirdly specific request she had gotten from a fan.
