Monica Gallagher is a writer and illustrator with over fifteen years experience making comics with a positive, feminist spin. She has worked for Oni Press, Vertigo, Papercutz, and Valiant, and as well as self-published several of her own mini-comics and books. Currently, Monica has two series comics on Webtoons -- Assassin Roommate (which won a Ringo award in 2018 for Best Hero!), and BOO! It’s Sex with Danielle Corsetto. She also recently co-wrote the first season of Lethal Lit, (mentioned by the New York Times as “A Great Podcast of 2018”!) with Alex Segura for iHeart Radio.
Her most recently published book, Part-Time Princesses, was released by Oni Press and featured on YALSA's The Hub Blog in their “Women In Comics: Princesses With a Twist” article. Monica has also kickstarted and self-published the collected Volume #1 of her webcomics series Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five (which was recently reviewed by NPR Books!).
In 2013, Monica started up Bmore Into Comics, a series of small, one-day shows featuring comics creators exhibiting their work in local businesses throughout Baltimore, with the goal of getting more people interested in and reading comics.
Monica quit her day job in March 2017 (THANKS PATRONS!) and is currently a freelance writer and cartoonist, who just recently moved to Austin with her boyfriend and her gigantor ginger cat.
