Last month’s trip to London Super Comic Con was already exciting enough with the prospect of meeting Stan Lee, however the weekend’s hype-factor was increased ten-fold with the possibility of a new Phonogram being announced. Sure enough, after some late night twitter feed refreshes, the news came through that Phonogram 3 would be coming our way from the Legends of
Rock Comics: Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. Unfotunatley we didn’t manage to get an interview with the “Dream Team” (McKelvie has a certain birthday bash and drinks to blame for that) however the (much more sober) Kieron Gillen was on hand on the Sunday to answer our persistent chanting of “TELL US MORE!”.

The Comics Anonymous gang caught up with Kieron Gillen at Legacy Comics in the picturesque town of Halifax, the day before the Thought Bubble con. With copious interruptions, from shuffling, blushing schoolgirls clutching X-Men issues and swooning a little, to Gillen himself stopping to give Spiderman sweeties to little children (but not in a creepy way), it was a long, fun, milkshake-fuelled afternoon. We heard new phrases coined (‘emotional contraceptives’ was a belter) and witnessed a short but intriguing philosophical examination of the creative writing process.
