Umbrella Academy review

I know, I know. It looks like I'm not writing much 'cause I'm not blogging much. But I'm writing a lot, I swear.

Like my new review of Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite at Pop Critics.

This is all a long-winded way of saying, there are a lot of very bad comics out there and celebrity “writers” are some of the worst offenders.

So when it was first announced that My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way was coming out with a book of his own, it was ignored by the comics cognoscenti. Just another rock star (literally) wanking off (not literally). It would get published, his screaming fans would buy it, and it would get tossed in the bin a few days later to be forgotten forever.
