34 Seconds of Waving Flag Footage Makes 20-Somethings Cry for 20 Minutes

Just before 2 o’clock on Wednesday, July, 20th 2016, the band My Chemical Romance’s dormant Twitter account released a 34-second video of a flag waving in the wind. The flag had a black cross on it and was bathed in white light. The twitter page also showcased a similar cross with the letters M, C, R, and X in the quadrants.

*Warning: you may have to play it multiple times if you’re like me, and start bawling every time the music starts.

Shocked, former  (and current) emo-teens everywhere tweeted out notice of the sudden activity, and by 3pm, the video had been shared more than 39,000 times. It is currently pinned to the top of the band’s Twitter profile.  Continue reading 34 Seconds of Waving Flag Footage Makes 20-Somethings Cry for 20 Minutes

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.
