Combining the biggest rock star of comic writing with the biggest comic writing rock star on earth, this event is not to be missed by any self respecting comic reader, rock fan, or earthling! The visionary creator behind The Invisibles, Batman: Arkham Asylum, New X-Men, All-Star Superman and the upcoming DC project Multiversity, Grant Morrison, joins forces with the Eisner-winning creator of The Umbrella Academy and former My Chemical Romance front man Gerard Way in an in-depth conversation of rock ‘n’ roll proportions!

Renowned for revamping iconic characters and entire superhero universes, Morrison has garnered a god-like status for living a life mirrored by his comic book creations – utilising everything from alien abductions to chaos magic to inspire some of the most groundbreaking story lines in comic history.
