More on Mikey Way and Collapser
In a recent interview with Behind The Panel, Mikey revealed how he felt he could relate to Collapser’s main character Liam. So much so, that the character’s peacoat reflects on Mikey’s own wardrobe choices.
“It’s a twenty-something-year-old kid named Liam James and he’s stuck between real-world responsibility and his dreams and aspirations of becoming a world-renowned DJ. He kinda wakes up one day and his mom leaves him something in her will. He finds out a lot about his mom through the course of a couple of issues, but yeah, he gets otherworldly powers [and] opens up his city to become a warscape for an intergalactic arms race that centers around him.”
Mikey goes on to discuss how important it was to discuss the aspects of mental health in the comic.
“I’ve dealt with mental health things my whole life and I felt like I had to put it in the story. I wanted to put a piece of myself in. I know Shaun battles with certain kinds of anxiety as well. It was important to show that in a comic book story.”
Collapser is slated to debut July 17 and you can get more information here.
