Welcome to another installment of the Orbital Comics interview podcast. With new books Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and Die making waves, Kieron Gillen stopped in for a wide-ranging conversation with Adam.
Kieron discusses everything that he’s drawing on for Dynamite Comics series Peter Cannon, and how it feels to be tentatively back in the world of superheroes alongside artist Caspar Wijngaard.
With Die, Kieron’s latest Image Comics project with Stephanie Hans, he’s chanelling and remixing some wonderful fantasy influences – from ancient children’s war games to Tolkien, MIddle Earth and the First World War.
Finally, with The Wicked + The Divine coming shortly to a close, Kieron reflects on the final stages of the collaborative process with Jamie McKelvie for their modern, pop, soap epic!
