Since the early days of My Chemical Romance, Gerard Way has expressed an interest in comic books and graphic novels. In 2007, he premiered the first installments of his limited series The Umbrella Academy--and promptly won an Eisner Award, the comic book industry's equivalent of snaring a Grammy. The series is somewhat similar to Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events, where orphans are forced to fend for themselves. The difference? These kids have superpowers, and they're pretty gothic.
