"Comics contests
and how-to's were my favorite part of comics as a kid," said Gallagher,
who writes, draws, and publishes Buzzboy's adventures, "this is just my
way of passing on the magic to a new generation of comics and graphic
novel readers."

Prizes in the Create-A-Hero Contest  include the Buzzboy graphic
novels, original artwork and comic art supplies from
Entries for the contest are available at the Sky-Dog Press website

Gallagher, "and it's just as much fun to create your own heroes, as I
can attest to! Good Luck!"
