Biography:
Fred Gallagher is the author and artist behind the successful American manga title, Megatokyo. While strongly influenced by Japanese Manga and Anime, Fred also mixes in elements of American fan culture and other inspirations that a non-Japanese creator can bring to the medium.

Megatokyo is released directly to the web as an online webcomic that is free to read by all visitors (www.megatokyo.com). Dark Horse Comics is releasing a second omnibus collection of volumes 4-6 in November.

Noted as being "the best-selling manga series ever by an American artist" by ICV2.com in 2005 and as one of "the 30 Most Important Comics of the Decade" by Comic Book Resources in 2010, Megatokyo holds its own against many popular Japanese created titles. In 2009 a Japanese edition of Megatokyo Volume 1 was released in Japan, the first Original English Language manga title licensed by Kodansha for the Japanese market.
