My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way Reveals Art To Unpublished Vertigo Batman Series
In 2008, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way seized the momentum of his Eisner win for The Umbrella Academy and pitched a Batman series to DC. Not just any wing of DC, either. Its mature-readers imprint, Vertigo. Saturday, he finally revealed some of the early designs for that never-to-be-published series, titled "Kingdom of the Mad." The art has a sort of Tim Burton-y quality to it (but more Edward Scissorhands than Batman '89), with a sort of patchwork Batman and a sinister Mr. Freeze. Check out what Way had to say about the project on Twitter, as well as his designs, after the jump!
