GERARD WAY DISCUSSES HIS MARVEL DEBUT WITH “EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE
Gerard Way is no comic book dilettante. Already internationally famous as the lead singer of My Chemical Romance when his series “The Umbrella Academy” debuted from Dark Horse Comics in 2007, Way has continued to work in the medium, most recently 2013’s “The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys.”
Now, Way is embracing another comic book writer rite of passage — writing Spider-Man. Well, sort of. He’s writing “Edge of Spider-Verse” #5, introducing a new Spider-character named Peni Parker, a teenage girl of Japanese heritage who co-pilots a machine called “SP//dr.” The issue is scheduled for release in October, and is illustrated by Jake Wyatt — last seen at Marvel on last fall’s “Incredible Hulk Special,” and described by Way as “perfect” for what the writer had planned for the story.
