Gerard Way Makes Marvel Debut With Spider-Man Comic

Gerard Way will be contributing to a new Spider-Man miniseries, “Edge of Spider-Verse,” set to be out in September. If your inner-Marvel/Comic/Gerard Way nerd is burning for more information, you can check out a report from Bleeding Cool regarding Gerard’s involvement, as well as an article from Comic Book Resources for more information on the miniseries.

Then finally we have “Edge of Spider-Verse” #5 by writer Gerard Way, which is also his first work for Marvel.

[Nick] Lowe:Yes, so Gerard was actually the very first call I made for this project. I’ve been trying to get Gerard on a Marvel project for long time. We met a couple years ago at New York Comic Con and I’ve been slowly and surely trying to weasel my way into his life and trying to get him to write something for me. Because I’m such a huge fan of “Umbrella Academy.” It’s pretty embarrassing. So I’ve been desperately trying to get him going on something and this was something I could really let him loose with. It allowed him to go crazy and tell whatever kind of story he wanted to tell. There were really no rules here. He came up with this alternate universe and a Spider character unlike any that I think we’ve ever seen before. He’s already turned in some designs and he’s feverishly writing away.
