CBR TV 2008: Gerard Way, Part 4

by  in Comic News Comment

The creator and writer of Dark Horse’s “The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite” and the frontman of My Chemical Romance, Gerard Way talks to CBR TV about his and artist Gabriel Bá’s newest collaboration, “The Umbrella Academy: Dallas,” issues #1 and #2 of which are on sale now.

In this fourth installment of an exclusive five-part on-camera interview, Way discusses the many varied places he wrote “Apocalypse Suite,” including Malaysia, New Zealand and Vietnam, and how those exotic locations influenced the comic book’s story. Additionally, Way says that “Umbrella Academy,” having provided the writer with an outlet for fiction and narrative, has allowed his music to be far more personal going forward.
