Kieron Gillen is an English comic book writer best known for working with Marvel and Image Comics. His most recognizable series is found in the form of Phonogram and its sequel, Phonogram: The Singles Club, a creator owned series which he worked on with artist Jamie McKelvie. Gillen also received critical acclaim for his run on Thor, as well as the mini series S.W.O.R.D.
He also worked on Generation Hope at Marvel, focusing on Cable's daughter Hope and the Five Lights, which features art by Salva Espin. He is also known for his work on Uncanny X-Men, with artists Terry and Rachel Dodson.
In 2011 Kieron and artist Doug Braithwaite relaunched Journey Into Mystery, the series in which Thor first appeared. This series focused around Young Loki and his new accomplice Leah. Kieron left the book in December 2012 after a 25 issue run.
In 2013 the Phonogram team (Gillen and McKelvie) began work on Young Avengers, featuring Young Loki, Wiccan, Hulkling, Miss America, Kate Bishop, Noh-Varr and Prodigy. The book focused around the team trying to combat an inter-dimensional parasite called Mother, which Wiccan had inadvertently summoned while trying to bring back Hulkling's Mother. The new series was widely well received and has since been made into a Marvel Omnibus.
Kieron is currently writing another Creator own series, The Wicked and the Divine, with Phonogram and Young Avengers artist Jamie McKelvie.
