Gerard Way Comics and More

Published: Feb. 9, 2024, 1:15 a.m.


Joining me today is artist and comic shop aficionado Aynsley Leonardis! Check out Aynsley\'s indie comics convention, Brooklyn Independent Comics Showcase - it\'s free - Saturday April 13. Is it OK to be confused when you read a comic? What comics has Gerard Way written? How did Aynsley get started reading comics? Who is Al Columbia? Would Gerard Way have had a career as a comic book artist and writer if not for his My Chemical Romance fame? What makes Umbrella Academy a good book? Has manga gotten more popular? What are some starter manga? What is Plus-Sized Elf? What comic did Brett pick up for free and then got the whole book? What happens in Legend? Is it fun to tell people about a comic you like? What would Brett have if it was up to him? What was it like for Aynsley to work in a comic book store when she was younger? What is Gerard Way like in person? Which Doom Patrol run is better? Is there a comic book for everyone? What is a 10 copy incentive variant?
