4 Unannounced Shiny Shiny New Comics Kieron Gillen Is Working On, Kinda

kieronKieron Gillen is running through his current projects, including these four unannounced comic books…

UNANNOUNCED MARVEL THING – Two issues written. Inks arriving for the first issue, which are an utter delight. I think people will love it. It's an ongoing.

UNANNOUNCED 5 ISSUE THING: Horror comic with a music bent. I've said I'd write it for someone for over a year now, and really should get down to it. That it hasn't been urgent means I haven't had to prioritise it, but now I'm ahead on basically all my work by a considerable amount means I really should. I believe this will be 2017, or maybe early 2018.

ONE-OFF WFH ISSUE: Need to write a tight synopsis for this, but it's basically a chance to play with an icon for a publisher I've wanted to work with for a long time.

THE SPANGLY NEW THING: I had an idea for something at SDCC which instantly jumped to the top of the queue of things I want to write. I think it's the best idea I've had since WicDiv, and maybe even better than that – it's a purer idea anyway, though I suspect not as commercial. If it happens – and I'm still talking to the artist about it – that'll be 2017.

As for whether one of these could be a Star Wars project to follow his critically acclaimed run on Darth Vader
