"It's really a superhero book leaning on the fancy side, but how else could it be? A lot of people do celebrity and superhero; that's an old trope. But it's almost always cynical, the idea that just because they did a bit of coke they aren't as good as Superman. And it's like, fuck you! David Bowie saved my life." -- Kieron Gillen

'Talking about life generally… have you ever fell in love? I’m going to write this assuming you have, but if you haven’t (or don’t) I’d appreciate it if you went with me. Did you give consent to fall in love? Flip it around to the other person. Did they, by conscious action, force you to fall in love with them? I’d say the answer to both is “no”. The question of free will is an interesting one Re: Love. In regards to the feelings, I don’t think we have it. The actions connected to it, sure, but not the feelings itself. Whether Teddy was created by Billy’s subconscious or whether he actually fell in love the normal way (stating the obvious: one is a metaphor for the other in YA), he can’t choose to not be in love. However, he can choose how he acts. Teddy has already shown he has as much free will as anyone else when he left Billy.' -- Kieron Gillen

"The people who get it really get it, and there are people who don’t like Young Avengers, but I don’t think I was wrong about anything. The people who don’t like it, I literally can’t think of a way that they would like it, you know what I mean? That, to me, feels like pop music. They can’t tell the difference between Robyn or the Macarena or whatever. The genre is pop, therefore it’s s**t. The people who don’t like Young Avengers for the reasons you were just talking about feel like that to me. Your aesthetic doesn’t include this book, and that’s okay, but I wish it did." -- Kieron Gillen

"I used to horrify British writers by noting that my reviews improved for every panel I lost from a page, even from critics who often made a big show of raging against decompression. -- Kieron Gillen

"There are some people who think Bathos is, by its nature, bad. We are not those people. Comic deflation of genre excess is a good thing, Sez Us." -- Kieron Gillen

'[I] found myself thinking about something Warren Ellis said back towards the early 00s. I thought it was in his column COME IN ALONE, but can’t find it if it was. Basically, saying that he guaranteed that there are “mainstream” writers picking over Chris Ware to see how you can apply it to superhero comics. It always struck me as strange that there was so little evidence of that…" -- Kieron Gillen

Jamie McKelvie posted some preview pages of Young Avengers #1 showing Kate and Noh-Varr (I shall dub them "Kano." And yes, I know that is the name of a villain in Mortal Kombat. That you could make that a portmanteau couple name is amusing to me.)

I found this unlettered preview page on Bleedingcool (who found it in The Gay Times, which also comes with an interview with Kieron Gillen).
