Gerard on Pop Culture Hound Podcast  
Episode 45 – Where Music & Comics Meet with Gerard Way!
by Chris Thompson

Gerard Way joins me in conversation for a very special episode of the Pop Culture Hound podcast … But first Taylor & I give our in-depth review of his new comic, The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, from Dark Horse Comics. Co-written with Shaun Simon, and featuring art by Becky Cloonan, colors by Dan Jackson and letters by Nate Piekos, Killjoys continues the story of the post-apocalyptic world first shown in the film clips for My Chemical Romance’s Na Na Na & Sing.

Then Gerard & I delve into his approach to comics and music. Why did he feel it was time for My Chemical Romance to end? How did he rediscover his love of art? What effect did 9/11 have on the ultimate direction his life would take? We discuss all that and more as we look at his writing process, what it’s like collaborating with others, and what motivates him to keep creating. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the world where music & comics meet, presented by one of the people most qualified to lead us there.
