Fresh Ink Online: Interview With Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance, Umbrella Academy)


Posted August 28, 2009 - By Frank Meyer

Hey, gang! Host Blair Butler is out this week on a rare vacation. Yes, even Blair gets to take some time off once in a while. So instead of a new episode of Fresh Ink Online, we are running this awesome interview with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way.

Of course, in addition to being a big rock star, Gerard is a superb illustrator and writer, and the man behind the terrific comic The Umbrella Academy (Dark Horse Comics). We here at Fresh Ink Online are always thrilled when he stops by, and this is a very special opportunity to get inside his head.

In Part 1 of this sit-down chat, Gerard talks about how he became involved in the comic book world, who his influences and collaborators are, and how the surprise success of the band nearly pulled him away from his true passion, comics.

In Part 2, he chats in depth with Blair about The Umbrella Academy, how it came to be and where it’s going. He also discusses upcoming comic projects and what’s next for My Chemical Romance.

This is fascinating stuff from a man who truly wears many, many hats. Of course, he is not actually wearing a hat here, per se, but you get the picture.

Come back next week when Blair returns, all tan and filled with sunshine, to cover two weeks of brand new comics. And make sure to visit us on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace if ya got the guts!
