About Bill Galvan

Bill has been a comic book fan since he was 7 years old, and has been drawing comics ever since. After graduating high school, he attended  Southern Utah University, working as an editorial cartoonist and layout designer for the school newspaper. In 1996 he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Art/Illustration. In 2003, Bill co-created The Scrapyard Detectives, an all ages comic book series for The Diversity Foundation.

In 2006, Bill was hired by Archie Comics as a freelance penciler, and has also drawn for Marvel Comics and Bongo Comics.  In 2009 he collaborated with writer Batton Lash on the critically acclaimed mini-series Archie: Freshman Year, which chronicled Archie’s first year in high school. This was followed by Archie: Freshman Year- Book 2 and The Archies & Josie and the Pussycats graphic novel. In 2014, Bill penciled the young adult novel, Betty: Diary of Girl Next Door, which was distributed by Random House.

Recently Bill penciled a story for the Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror #21, and in Spring 2016 will be penciling stories for the new Pink Panther and Three Stooges series from American Mythology.
