Gerard Way talks with the Comic Geek Speak podcast about his new off-beat Dark Horse mini-series, the Umbrella Academy.
Talking from on the road in England, Gerard Way reveals just how long he's been waiting to break into comics, his love for the medium, how a family of super-heroes would truly behave, his predictions for the developing Watchmen movie and why Lee and Kirby's Fantastic Four is the measure for all comic creators. From his days as a student at New York's School of Visual Arts to the potential mixing of his music and comic fans to the fantastic Umbrella Academy creative team, Gerard Way riffs on it all. Check out Comic Geek Speak Episode 327 for both the Gerard Way interview and for an in-depth analysis of the issues to date with Dr. Geoff Klock, author of How to Read Super-Heroes and Why?.
