Gerard Way might be best known to the general public as the frontman for the band My Chemical Romance. But SYFY Wire readers are probably more familiar with his comic books than his music. And we got a chance to talk to Gerard Way at San Diego Comic-Con about those books.

Gerard started Young Animal, a "pop-up" imprint for DC with a focus on underground comics. Recently, DC announced a crossover between Young Animal and the DCU. While Gerard can't say much about the crossover, he does tell us a little bit about what he hopes to get out of it.

We also talk to Way about his award-winning comic book series The Umbrella Academy. The comic is being turned into a TV series at Netflix, and Gerard fills us in on his and illustrator Gabriel Ba's involvement. Check it out, and let us know if you'll be watching.
