Kieron Gillen

Comic Book Writer

Kieron Gillen

Kieron Gillen first came to attention as a comic writer with ‘Phonogram: Rue Britannia’, his first book with long-term collaborator Jamie McKelvie. Since then, they have done two further volumes of ‘Phonogram’, ‘Young Avengers’ for Marvel, and created the Eisner-nominated, best-selling ‘The Wicked + the Divine’. They’ve also managed to convince colourist Matt Wilson and letterer Clayton Cowles into joining them, despite them being lovely people and not monsters like Kieron and Jamie.

His present work includes ‘Doctor Aphra’ for Marvel, ‘Uber: Invasion’ and ‘Modded’ for Avatar Press and ‘Ludocrats’ (with David Lafuente and Jim Rossignol) for Image. His previous work includes ‘Darth Vader’, ‘Uncanny X-Men’, ‘Iron Man’, ‘Three’, ‘Thor’, ‘Journey Into Mystery’, and far too many books to fit in here. He also once played records for DMC to rap over.

He lives in London with one wife, one cat and an undisclosed number of unannounced projects.
