Of late, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has been returning to his comics roots, with the final volume of Umbrella Academy, and a proposed comic about punk cats called “All Ages” which he teased earlier this year on Twitter. And now he’s written and drawn a comics about Twitter and twitter abuse. This obviously ties in a bit with an essay on the artists relation to their fan base he wrote earlier this year. And to be fair, when you’re an idolized rock star, the intensity of fan reactions can be…strong.
No wonder Way has been hanging around the more sedate halls of comicdom. Cartoonists don’t get mobbed when they go out in public, that’s for sure.
You can read Way’s entire Twitter comic in the above link, but here at the covers for “All Ages” that he teased a while back. Meanwhile…cats.
