April showers bring… more people asking if Gerard Way is going to Comic-Con!
If you haven’t been keeping up with our Gerard Way posts here at The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog, we come across a lot of San Diego Comic-Con news. We sift through it to bring our readers a comprehensive look at what attendees can expect to get excited about for the upcoming year’s Comic-Con. A lot of the information we find is fans asking their favorite artists, writers, and celebrities via Twitter if they will be attending SDCC or not for the upcoming year. It seems that no matter what information we come across, every year one name stands above the rest.
We find that one of San Diego Comic-Con’s most tweeted after celebrities is former My Chemical Romance band member and Eisner-award-winning Umbrella Academy writer, Gerard Way.
In fact, each year we find so many Gerard Way tweets that we began to ask ourselves, just how many times does Gerard Way get asked via Twitter if he will be attending Comic-Con?
Each month, we’ve been keeping a tally of just how often Gerard Way gets asked about attending Comic-Con, so that by July, we can finally answer that burning question of just how many times does Gerard Way get asked if he will be attending SDCC?
So how many times did Gerard Way get asked this month?
Here are April’s tweets:

Last month we saw a nice suggestion for what Gerard Way should cosplay if he happens to attend SDCC 2015. This month we have another Twitter cosplay suggestion:
@gerardway you should cosplay as yourself to ComicCon

Although this is not an actual tweet asking if Gerard will be at sdcc or not, it does make us wonder what would be so Red Bull spit-tastic.
While we still don’t have word if Gerard Way will be attending SDCC 2015 or not (when we find out we will be sure to let you know), here is the total Gerard Way tweet count thus far:
- January 2015: 15
- February 2015: 6
- March 2015: 9
- April 2015: 9
This brings us to a total of: 39
This is by no means a complete list, but these are what we happen to come across in our SDCC news search efforts. How many times will Gerard get asked in May? Take a guess and let us know in the comments.
