  1. Kieron Gillen Talks Watchmen

    A year ago in the pub, a friend asked writer Kieron Gillen what the big deal is about WATCHMEN. It got him thinking. This speech was the result of all those Kieron Gillen head thinks about that famous eighties comic with the smiley face on the front. See Kieron Gillen wave his hands and fanboy out about comics formalism in an intimate environment. Topics include nine panel grids, structuralism in story, his own autobiographical transformation during a chance encounter on Oxford Street, the unanswered challenge of Watchmen, how he rips it off and yet more nine panel grids. He also wears his second most expensive of skull jackets. All images are property of their respective owners.
