My Chemical Romance are officially back in action, and all is right with the world. On Friday, the band returned after a six-year hiatus for an unforgettable reunion show at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.
They had a career-spanning setlist in a show that definitely lived up to the hype. The entire reunion was so emotional for many of us in the scene, so some MCR fans showed their appreciation for the reunion with some fan art.
Check out 10 of the best pieces of fan art to come out of the My Chemical Romance reunion below.
1. This drawing inspired by the band’s generosity toward their fans
Noite da véspera do show do retorno do MCR. Os integrantes da banda vão até a fila dos fãs, acampados, dormindo na fila, e oferecem cobertores pra eles não passarem frio ao relento no inverno de Los Angeles.

On the night before the MCR reunion show, the band gave blankets to fans sleeping outside the Shrine. Comic book artist Fábio Moon (and brother to The Umbrella Academy illustrator Gabriel Bá) was so touched by this action that he decided to draw the scene for people to enjoy.

Why put out regular nutcrackers for the holidays when you can have an MCR-inspired one? This piece of fan art isn’t only creative but festive, as well.

I drew @frankieromustdie because just incase any of you were unaware there's this little band called My Chemical Romance and they kinda sorta got back together recently • #frankieroart #frankierofanart #frankiero #mcrreunion #mcrart #mcrfanart #mcr #mychemicalromancefanart #mychemicalromance #mychemicalromancereunion #mychemicalromanceart #kommunity #talenthouseartist @mychemicalromance @kerrangmagazine_
This spot-on drawing of Frank Iero is a perfect way to commemorate the iconic reunion. It’s a downright spitting image of the guitarist.

I've been thinking about doing this strip since they announced the comeback show and finally made it today in a record time, and hope you like it. How are you waiting for the show? Are you excited? I have to stay up until 1 am and it's gonna be such a long night here. #mychemicalromanceart #mychemicalromance #mychemicalromanceisback #mcrcomeback #mcrreturn #return #mcr #revenge #mcrart #gerardway #mikeyway #raytoro #frankiero
One artist decided to imagine the band before the show at the Shrine in this adorable comic strip, which is pretty fitting for a band fronted by The Umbrella Academy comics creator.
