 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.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
