PARTY! Kieron Gillen on Young Avengers’ End-of-Year Shindig [SDCC 2013]

afterparty

What are you doing New Year's Eve? It may seem a long way off, but as announced at Friday's Cup O' Joe panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Kieron Gillen is already making plans.

The last issue of Young Avengers in 2013 and the first in 2014 tell a two-part story of a single night at a party - a chance to blow off steam after the trials and tribulations ahead. What makes the story really exciting is its guest artists, including Becky Cloonan, Joe Quinones, Ming Doyle, Christian Ward and Emma Vieceli. ComicsAlliance spoke to Kieron Gillen to find out more about the story, and what readers have to look forward to in the meantime.

First Look: ‘Three’ #1 Cover For Kieron Gillen & Ryan Kelly’s Anti-’300′ Image Book

untitled-3

What you're seeing here for the first time is the cover of Three #1, the first chapter in a new miniseries written by Kieron Gillen (Phonogram, Young Avengers) and drawn by Ryan Kelly (Saucer County, Local) that takes a much different, more historically accurate look at the violent world of ancient Sparta and the legendary 300 warriors than we've seen in some other comic books of note. Specifically, Gillen and Kelly's Three undermines the notion of Sparta as a free and heroic society -- as dramatized by Frank Miller in his celebrated graphic novel 300 and its hugely popular film adaptation -- by telling the story of three slaves on the run for their lives.

Passion, Freedom And Motion In Gillen And McKelvie’s ‘Young Avengers’ [Review]

youngavengers1

We at ComicsAlliance have never been shy about our love for Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's excellent indie Phonogram. We named The Singles Club the fifth-best comic of 2010, broke the story about Phonogram's end, and wondered hopefully at the teasing implications of a return. When The Immaterial Girl was announced in 2012, we celebrated, and when we heard it was pushed back to 2013, we were a little crestfallen. But when it was announced that Gillen and McKelvie would be the creative team on the relaunch of Young Avengers, we figured we could probably wait a little longer. We were right. Five issues in, the creative team has made Young Avengers one of the most exciting and experimental books on the stands, and one of the few comics about youth that actually captures the energy and potential of it.

The Phil Coulson Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 5

05philcoulson

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
