Kieron Gillen

Kieron Gillen first came to attention as a comic creator with his 2006’s Phonogram, with Jamie McKelvie. Jamie and he formed into a gestalt monster that rampaged against the next fifteen years of comics, culminating with critical and smash hit the Wicked + the Divine.

When not with Jamie, he has co-created books such as DIE, The Ludocrats, Once & Future, Three, Uber and more. When not making his own worlds, he has worked on Marvel Comics biggest books, such as Uncanny X-men, Young Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Star Wars, Eternals and Darth Vader, (where he co-created Doctor Aphra).

In a previous life he was an award winning pop-culture critic and journalist, and co-founder of Rock Paper Shotgun.

The best way to keep up to date with what he’s doing is his newsletter.

He hates writing about himself in the third person, yet somehow he perseveres.
