The ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND TPB is in stores today. This collects Robyn Hood: Legend #1-5, the final miniseries of the trilogy. It completely wraps up Robyn’s story, while setting her up for the ongoing series that we’re currently doing. It’s my favorite thing I’ve ever written, so I hope you guys like it!

That’s a wrap on scripting for CINDERELLA: AGE OF DARKNESS. It’s a short, action-packed, bloody, comedic look about a bloodthirsty sorority girl with power… during the apocalypse. It’s just three issues, so it was a fun little break from the three ongoings I’m currently juggling.
Now, back to my normal workload of Robyn Hood, Grimm Fairy Tales, and Charmed: Season Ten for a while!

This is one of my favorite scenes from GRIMM FAIRY TALES #102. This came out Wednesday, and I forgot to post here about it. It’s my second issue as the ongoing writer on this title, and artist Andrea Meloni and I are telling a brand new story with a brand new cast. We talk about it as Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Harry Potter.

For those unfamiliar with the title, GRIMM FAIRY TALES began anew with #101. It’s about Arcane Acre, a newly built school to train highborns — beings from the realms of Oz, Neverland, Wonderland, and Myst — to protect the Earth. There’s monsters, genies, drama, romance, and it’s all perfectly new reader friendly.

Both #101 and #102 are in stores now!

Here’s a cover from ROBYN HOOD: THE ONGOING SERIES #5! Art by Jason Metcalfe. This one is a December release, and it’s the second part/conclusion of the ROBYN HOOD VS. RED RIDING HOOD story.
Coolest part about this one? Sam is on a cover!

Anonymous asked: Her there, Mr. Gillen. In Über #17's afterward, you mentioned panel structure. Something that, coincidentally, I first noticed through Garth Ennis's use of mostly five panel pages. My question is this: How do you determine the amount of panels a page requires? I used to think something like that would vary wildly, but that can't be the case. Not when there's this much routine.

Okay, this became a bit of an essay, so I’m going to put most of it beneath a cut. It’s all really off the top of my head, so apologies for rambling, typos, etc.

Worth noting that before I write anything else here, there’s a lot of implicit assumptions behind what sort of comic I’m describing, and the effect you’re looking for.

The standard rule of deciding on panels is that there’s one action per panel. Some people would add “per character” to that. Use those math to work out the panel count.

Also worth noting that not all writers call number of panels, but even if they don’t tell the artist it, they’re doing that sort of internal math to work out how much they can fit on a page.

The trick is doing maths on choosing what that action is, and what actions are actually necessary. There’s an exercise that Tony Lee once told me - which I believe he got from JMS - which involves telling an artist or writer how long a set bit of story is. The story is, roughly…

More of the usual brilliance from one Kieron Gillen.

Another from ROBYN HOOD: THE ONGOING SERIES #2!

In this one, Marian falls in love with the wicked art of roller derby.

So… Robyn Hood is a nerdfighter. That’s canon.

What!

I have no idea what this is, but…canon Nerdfighter! That’s cool.

WHOA, so this post is kind of blowing up. I’m so happy that Robyn and Marian are getting out there!
For those wondering what this is, it’s a new comic book I’m writing called ROBYN HOOD. We’ve done a few volumes of it before, but this is a brand new story that I’ve modernized and set in NYC. Robyn Locksley is living in a small apartment with Marian Quin and, together, they solve supernatural crimes, go to rock shows, and might even join roller derby.
Also, as you saw, Robyn is a big Nerdfighter, and she’s also a Joss Whedon fan!

You can find the first issue in your local comic shop! The second issue comes out September 24th. It’s an ongoing series, so we put one installment out every month. If your shop doesn’t carry it, call them up and ask them to order Zenescope’s Robyn Hood ongoing series!
Or, you can order/pre-order online:

You’ll notice the covers are a bit different than the interior art, but I hope that you find you enjoy Robyn and Marian’s adventures! If you’re more curious about the series, here’s an interview I did about Robyn, feminism, drugs, cats, comics, etc:
