According to an interview, during his formative years, Gallaher did not have a television. His first exposure to the 'moving picture' was in 1978 with the first Superman film. He attributes this event as being crucial in his career within the comics industry. In 1980, when his family got a television, he was blasted with all sorts of televised superhero material from Shazam! to Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends to Super Friends to The Incredible Hulk and Batman. According to an interview with Comics Worth Reading, Gallaher grew up in steeped in "Civil War history and dirty little secrets."
