Gerard Way Confirmed for San Diego Comic-Con 2016

gerard-way-01Some of you may recall that our own staffer, Lisa McDowell, went a little insane last year from the amount of people asking former frontman of My Chemical Romance and Eisner-Award-winning Umbrella Academy creator Gerard Way if he’d be attending San Diego Comic-Con. While last year, Way skipped the con – we’ve got good news for 2016 (for Lisa and for you!)

You can all finally stop asking – Gerard Way is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con this year.

We’ve confirmed with DC Entertainment that Way is indeed returning to San Diego Comic-Con this year. He’ll be at a panel (details still to come) to discuss his new pop-up imprint, DC’s Young Animal, along with Cecil Castelucci (Shade, The Changing Girl) and Jody Houser (Mother Panic).

So yes, Way will be at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Let’s wait a month before we start asking about 2017, okay?

    OK, this made me laugh. It might be my favorite SDCC Blog running joke. I am excited for him doing a panel this year. I hope I’ll be able to catch him. I think the last time he showed up, it was only for an autograph session, which I’m not really interested in.

    I think we’re determined to try to get Lisa to meet him this year, just so she can go, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ASK YOU TO GO TO COMIC-CON? BECAUSE I DO.
