* SnarkKnight: The aforementioned ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'' glossary is marvelously snarky. It's entertaining enough in its own right to justify buying the comics, even if the actual comic bit sucked. (Which it doesn't.)

!!Tropes present in his works and in real life applying to him:works:



* BerserkButton: Evidently, DoubleStandard and sexist lines of thinking, and general distaste towards people who treat women negatively. He tends to be calm and respectable, but he loses his snarky CloudCuckooLander exterior.
* CloudCuckooLander: Comes across as this when talking to people, evidenced by his semi-joking ramblings during letter responses.
* MotorMouth: He talks so long in interviews that he often forgets the question or starts interviewing another person.

* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: In 2015, Gillen had a full plate: ''[[ComicBook/AngelaMarvelComics Angela: Asgard's Assassin]]'', ''[[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 Siege]]'', and ''ComicBook/StarWarsDarthVader'' for Marvel; ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'', ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'', and ''ComicBook/{{Ludocrats}}'' for Image; ''ComicBook/{{Uber}}'', ''[[ComicBook/{{Crossed}} Crossed: Badlands]]'', and ''ComicBook/MercuryHeat'' for Creator/AvatarPress.

* OneOfUs: A given, being a comic book writer, but especially notable from his Tumblr account and the general presentation of ''Young Avengers'', which includes him drawing attention to fanart, and his regular references to such topics as slash-fiction and fandom.
** His comics fanboy comes out in afterwords to ''Uber #0'' in which you can ''feel'' how happy he was when Creator/GarthEnnis read his world-bible and said it has potential.
** He is also found of works of Creator/JunjiIto, calling ''Manga/{{Uzumaki}}'' his favorite horror comics.
** He and some of his friends created a podcast purely for the purpose of discussing each episode of the second season of ''Series/{{Community}}''. Find it [[http://welcometostudygroup.tumblr.com/ here]].
* ProductionPosse: Several of his books (''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'', ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'', ''The Wicked and the Divine'') are done with artist Creator/JamieMcKelvie, colorist Matt Wilson, and letterer Clayton Cowles.

** In ''YoungAvengers #3'', Billy at one point goes into detail about Norse Mythology, specifically the changes made to it by Marvel, such as Loki becoming Thor's adoptive brother and nemesis rather than his best friend. On Tumblr, Gillen admits that he would've had him go into more detail about his knowledge of Norse Mythology, but the scene would've dragged on.

** He's not shy about his love of pop music, and almost every title he's written has an "official" soundtrack. ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'' is a love song to Britpop and ''YoungAvengers'' is full of pop culture and music references.
