GERARD WAY Unveils Guest Issue Of 'Doom Patrol'
He may be returning to the stage soon with My Chemical Romance but Gerard Way is not turning his back on the comic book world. The MCR frontman and The Umbrella Academy creator just unveiled a guest issue of Doom Patrol.
Since this is a stand-alone project, Gerard said that even people who aren't really following the Weight Of The Worlds issues of DP can still enjoy this new creation. He even described it as "incredibly fun and meta as hell".
Doom Patrol: Weight of The Worlds Issue 5— Out now! Hey all, we have a very special issue of Doom Patrol here. This is a guest issue with a fantastic story by Young Animal family member Becky Cloonan along with Michael Conrad. Stunning art by Becky (she told me this is the first full standard comic issue she has drawn since Killjoys!), as always— wonderful colors by Tamra Bonvillain, and awesome lettering by Simon Bowland. Despite the names on the cover, Jeremy and Nick and I didn’t create this issue, as this is a stand-alone story, and an idea that Becky and Michael had for a while that they were very passionate about. It’s incredibly fun and meta as hell. If you haven’t been following DP WOTW you can still enjoy this issue. Check it out! Just ignore the credits printing error on the cover, but enjoy the cover image by Becky and Tamra! #doompatrol #dcyounganimal #dccomics @beckycloonan @tamra.bonvillain @simonbowlandlettering @michaelwconrad
Aside from their December reunion show which was sold out in minutes, MCR announced more shows in March 2020.
