About the Author

Kieron Gillen

Kieron Gillen is a British writer and journalist best known for his work in comics and entertainment media.

Gillen's first graphic novel, PHONOGRAM (with artist/co-creator Jamie McKelvie) , was published through IMAGE COMICS in 2006. Since then he's found work writing for MARVEL, AVATAR, BOOM, TOKYOPOP and more that don't spring to mind right now.

At Marvel, he's written runs on books including THE UNCANNY X-MEN, THOR, YOUNG AVENGERS, IRON MAN, JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY. He's also pursued his own creations, in books like UBER and THREE. His ongoing gods-as-popstar series with long time collaborators Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson THE WICKED THE DIVINE launched to both critical and commercial success. In 2015, he'll be launching books including DARTH VADER and MERCURY HEAT.

In his previous life as a critic, his work has appeared in WIRED, THE GUARDIAN, PLAYSTATION MAGAZINE UK, PC GAMER, EDGE and far too many others to count. In 2007 he was one of the founders of ROCKPAPERSHOTGUN.COM, what is now the world's premier PC-centric games blog.

His website can be found at KieronGillen.com. He probably should remember to update this more often, but he does get distracted by shiny lights and sudden noises.
