"Basically, this is my semi-spiritual sequel to S.W.O.R.D. that tries to be NextWave as a tragedy. It’s probably the most ludicrously me thing I’ve ever done for Marvel." -- Kieron Gillen

"Marguerite and I both have terrible literary and historical fancy-pants tendencies, so playing games with the period is fun, in the ultimate mash-up between early-Jacobean and the Marvel Universe way. Plus, with the added Gaiman-ness, we get to play some games with that as well." - Kieron Gillen

Enter the region of Battleworld known as... KING JAMES' ENGLAND.

"We’re planning action sequences that make Young Avengers look like a slice-of-life comic about collecting nail clippings. There'll be formalist art-as-comics-comics-as-art playfulness that makes Phonogram look like the most derivative and graceless phoned in piece of shit on the shelves. When we need to, we’ll push all the dials into the red. (Not that we’ve ever been known to over-promise.)" -- Kieron Gillen

'There's a line I drop at the end of the writers' letter in issue #0: "I hope you find it fascinating and compelling. I hope you don't enjoy it." That's basically my aim.' -- Kieron Gillen

'What I wanted to do was take everything I know about fantasy universes and what people connect to, and pop star icon-ness, and all that... basically everything I've ever learned. And use that to make a universe that people could buy into. And when I say buy into, I mean "Oh yeah, this makes sense, I will get a tattoo, I'll go and cosplay." I wanted people to care about this.' -- Kieron Gillen

'[Her new costume] is completely different from everyone else's costume reworking at the moment. We're not really working with the kind of, "I'm going to take a selfie"-style character. Our character is more, "I'm on stage and I'm going to play guitar with David Bowie." She's pure glam-metal.' -- Kieron Gillen

"To the [characters] in STAR WARS, Vader is this inescapable force who is almost beyond their comprehension. To Vader, chasing them is what he does on Tuesday, and he’s got a world of pain to deal with in the rest of the week." -- Kieron Gillen

"The scream at the horror of war that is Uber. With jokes. I'm not sure what's going on.

"Not true. It just felt entirely natural to do this. Yes, you pick up all the awful anecdotes in the world if you're reading oral history, and I've dwelled on them, but there's still the sort of things which people would tell in a pub as a standard. I suppose they're the dual poles that drive a lot of Garth Ennis' work, and I've only really concentrated on one pole."

Avatar Press's offering for Free Comic Book Day this year is a teaser for a new sci-fi series by Kieron Gillen and Omar Francia.

'[Avatar publisher William Christensen] threw me a seed of something he thought Avatar should be publishing. That's how we were working then. Uber came from a basic seed idea of 'Nazi Germany invents Superhumans, prompting an arms race between the Allied and Axis powers." Mercury Heat's mandate was even wider: "Female-lead action comic."' -- Kieron Gillen

"What's next? The Great Burn which I suspect involves the last of the genre fun leeching out of the book and a great deal of burning." -- Kieron Gillen

'It is very much the sort of panel you can lift. I said earlier about the line which most skewers Cassandra was the “Smart” thing. With second thought, it’s probably this. That said, it’s also one which hits a lot of bad critics. Occasionally entertaining critics, but intellectually dishonest cowards.' -- Kieron Gillen
