The Flea is here!

Welcome to the premiere of The Poet and the Flea, a graphic novel by G. E. Gallas!

(For those of you not yet familiar with the story…)

Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to fondly wish William Blake a happy 255th birthday wherever he may be.

Secondly, I would like to inform you that hereafter The Poet and the Flea will update with one new page every Wednesday (except for holidays). In other words, page 6 will appear next Wednesday, page 7 the Wednesday after, and so on and so forth.

Thirdly, The Poet and the Flea will also be available on Tumblr at

Now, on with the show!
