16. The title All Ages does not refer to the series’ intended audience.
@cmcnellen I don't think All Ages is "all ages". I think the themes are very adult— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 27, 2013
17. It refers to admittance to punk shows.
Way says he wants to capture what it was like to go to punk shows when he was in high school, when it was still dangerous andbefore punk was marketed to the masses.
18. The series takes place in a run-down part of town.
Way described the series as “one of the most authentic things [he] can write” as it takes place in a music scene much like the one MCR came from in Newark, New Jersey.
19. It might give you that Holden Caulfield feeling.
@snowcarlile It's going to be a drama, coming of age, growing up in a scene, exploration, love, violence— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 27, 2013
The series is set to be about escape, the creation and destruction of relationships and how musiccan give you a place to belong. When asked by a fan if it would be like the original Killjoys concept (of a guy who “just wanted his Ramones records back”), Way said, “a lot more slice-of-life than that, and little to no science fiction. Think Love And Rockets, but different, and with cats.”
20. Way hasn’t decided on an artist for the series yet, and he wants your suggestions:
Some really cool artist suggestions so far, I am keeping notes. Any more artists you think would be right, please link me or give me a name— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 29, 2013
21. He’s considering working with an artist he has never worked with before. (Sorry Becky Cloonan, James Jean and Gabriel Bá.) He has a shortlist of six or seven, according to PopCultureHound's podcast.
Keep in mind: He’s just looking for early feedback from fans, not ideas. (He has plenty of those.)
22. The series could potentially kick off with a free web comic.
@KilljoyCaitlin I don't think so, but I think the series should start with a short free web comic— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 27, 2013
23. It will be a limited series.
Way has said on Twitter that he has enough material for six to 12 issues, and mentioned on the podcast that he would potentially have enough material for 10 issues at the moment with his intended pacing for the series (giving it more breathing room, less constant action on every page.)
24. Still, the impending Umbrella Academy series comes first (finally!)
@nicksays_summer UA is the focus, this is a slower development and part time— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 27, 2013
