They come round every now and then.
Tomorrow sees the publication of two new comic books written by Kieron Gillen, and another of his continuing series. There are artists as well of course. Colourists. Letterers. Editors. And three publishers. But this is really Kieron Gillen Day.
It was last celebrated in August 2015, which saw the publication of Siege, Darth Vader and The Wicked + The Divine all on the same day.
And tomorrow, the same stars have been aligned. Gosh Comics has a photo of all three.
Uber: Invasion #1 drawn by Daniel Gete and published by Avatar Press, Bleeding Cool’s publishers (oh and there’s the Top 100 Bleeding Cool Magazine out tomorrow, which also features Kieron). Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1, with Kev Walker and Salvador Larroca from Marvel. And The Wicked + The Divine #24 with someone called Jamie McKelvie who has decided to draw this issue, from Image Comics.
So, happy Kieron Gillen day to all, for tomorrow. What will you be doing to celebrate?
