My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way has finally gone mainstream. Marvel announced that the singer and writer of comic series such as Umbrella Academy and The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys would be one of five writers contributing an issue to a new "Edge of Spider-Verse" miniseries. The series will run in September and October, and will focus on minor characters from Dan Slott's Spider-Man event. Way's issue will focus on an alternate Spider-Man named "SP//dr", and will be drawn by Jake Wyatt.
Other creators involved in the miniseries include Dustin Weaver (who I guess is taking a break from those last two issues of SHIELD), Pulitzer Prize winning horror novelist Clay McLeod Chapman, Jason Latour, David Hine, and Robbi Rodriguez. Three issues will be released in September, with the final two (including Way's) following in October.
