The Scrappy Storyteller

Gallas 5

“Do what you will, this world’s a fiction and is made up of contradiction.” – William Blake

GallasSometimes, I see something on the internet that grabs me—and won’t let go. Writer-illustrator G. E. Gallas caught me on Twitter a few weeks back. Now I think I’m in a death hold.

One peek at Gallas’ latest project, a graphic novel biography of 18th-century British poet, painter and print-maker William Blake, and you’ll see why I’m hooked. The Poet and the Flea is as beautiful and original as Blake himself.

So what inspired Gallas to tackle such sprawling subject matter?

Gallas 4

“William Blake first snuck in my consciousness when I read (of all things) Allen Ginsberg’s ‘A Supermarket in California,’” Gallas explains. While that poem is influenced heavily by Dante’s Divine Comedy, Gallas asserts that “the eternal questioning nature of this poem is not Dante’s influence, but Blake’s.”

THE STORY: A reimagining of the life of the poet-painter WILLIAM BLAKE. Set in 1790, at the onset of The Industrial Revolution, William suffers from the death of his beloved younger brother, Robert. Catherine (Kate) Blake attempts to comfort her husband, but cannot dispel his grief. During this spell of anxiety, William is visited by an ominous creature: THE GHOST OF A FLEA. The Flea reveals a vested interest in William’s spiritual well-being — the result of an unorthodox wager. Will William triumph over The Flea’s sinister meddling? Or will he fall victim to The Flea’s corruption?

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

  • “Gallas has an intriguing approach to having a true literary icon face the darkness of corruption and self doubt, with dialogue that gives a certain elegance to the interactions… The Poet and the Flea is a close, cerebral look at an intriguing character through the pen of a creator who clearly knows what she’s talking about.” –Drew of Music City Comics
  • “Gallas’ style, pen and ink with a discernible influence of Manga, sets Blake, to no detriment, as a young Johnny Depp in a romantic and gothic Tim Burton scene.” –Sarah Goode for the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
  • “Gallas knows when to focus on the written narrative, and when to let the pictures speak for themselves.” –Hannah Meiklejohn for Lemonade: Freshly Squeezed Art & Culture Magazine
  • “What a wonderful telling of this story! Word & image came together in a rich harmony. We could all see angels lighting up a tree if we got into the habit of looking for them. You encourage me to keep on looking!” –Stephen C. Winter, Anglican priest, spiritual guide, writer and speaker
  • “When I view [Gallas’] narrative, I feel it in my stomach like a knotted up fist we feel when we ride a roller coaster, so the feeling is visceral, and tender and it stays with you for some moments, less of the mind more of the soul…” –blogger tocksin.wordpress.com
  • “…it’s really a beautiful and touchingly told little book. …[Blake] was more than due for a comic treatment, and Gallas does it precisely as it ought to be done.” –author of webcomic Fredrick the Great: A Most Lamentable Comedy Breaching Time and Space
