Hey hey! Welcome to weekly recap! With Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix on the 15th there’s been a lot happening, so let’s get right to it!

Sunday Feb 3rd, 2019

Umbrella Academy was coping with the Sunday scaries….

But we were pretty sure that Luther just wanted ice cream…

Lola came on to show us how they were watching the super bowl and express their passion for the Rams.

Monday Feb 4th, 2019

Umbrella Academy was released to the press early for reviews. And as the reviews trickled in we were pleased to see that they were all raving about how incredible the show is!


There was also a special screening of Umbrella Academy in India.


And ads started running for Umbrella Academy on Spotify!


Forbidden Planet also gave us another look at those cool Umbrellas they have on display. We really hope these become actual merch. I want a Cha Cha umbrella!!


While Umbrella Academy lit up New York Times Square.

Tuesday Feb 5th, 2019

Lola was getting ready for the show launch!


And Umbrella Academy was on a mission.


We’re happy to report they think they can save even our souls. Clearly they like a challenge.


We also got our Lola doll in the mail and promptly gave Lola a new friend.


Which they loved!


Meanwhile Gabriel was getting super excited about seeing Umbrella light up Times Square.


And we found a picture of Gerard from the night of the writer’s cocktail party from UCP. Originally posted by Dawn Olmstead.

Wednesday Feb 6th, 2019

Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion issue #5 was FINALLY in stores! (Not that it was late coming out or anything, we just couldn’t wait to get our hands on it.)


So of course we quickly headed out to our local comic shop and picked it up!


We also got a new poster for the Doom Patrol series that will be a week to week series starting Feb 15th on the DCU streaming service.


And Gerard posted to express his excitement and thank fans for their support for Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion.

Thursday Feb 7th, 2019

Umbrella Academy decided that the notification for the UA trailer was the ONLY good morning text worth seeing….


But we changed their minds. 🙂


And with just 8 days left until Umbrella Academy’s release they gave us this Cha Cha and Hazel teaser.


Meanwhile I was busy getting the mental health profession to take a deep look at Umbrella Academy. I wonder if my therapist can help them…


And if the day wasn’t already amazing, we learned we were getting a new song from Gerard and Ray Toro at midnight!


Which you can now get on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify!

Friday Feb 8th, 2019

Just 7 days away from the release of Umbrella Academy!


We received an Umbrella Academy official playlist. (The tweet promoting it has since been deleted but here is a link to the playlist.)

And we received this Vanya teaser from Umbrella Academy to help pass the time….


Once the playlist dropped we also received the Happy Together official audio video on YouTube!


We also got this incredible new inked cover from artist @nemoechelon on Twitter.

Saturday Feb 9th, 2019

We woke up to a pretty great surprise. A brand new interview from Gerard with a new picture of him posing in such a way that made the fandom light up with comparisons from pictures of his past where he appears to have not changed.


We were also happy to tick off another day on the wait for Umbrella Academy….


To end the week, Umbrella Academy made a reference to Gerard’s cover and also gave us this cool gif that shows the scene where the cast dances to I Think We’re Alone Now.


And that’s it! You’re all caught up for the week! Don’t forget our current giveaway is still happening so RT that sh** on twitter to enter!

Hey everyone! I know we’ve gotten a little behind on weekly recap. I’ve been working on a lot of projects that are coming up for GWayFUN and I just haven’t had enough time in the day to get to everything. To make it up to you this weeks edition will be the last two weeks to catch up! Enjoy!

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

Umbrella Academy showed us the full picture of the Umbrella Academy that we had previously seen clips of from Aidan Gallagher.

and we got this gif of Cha Cha slaying.

Monday, January 21st, 2019

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day we got this sweet post from Gerard.

❤️

A post shared by Gerard Way (@gerardway) on

Meanwhile it would seem Number five was hard at work.

Tuesday, January 22nd 2019

Hazel showed off his sweet tooth.

While Gerard appeared to be having fun with water balloons. Facing some fears perhaps?

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Umbrella Academy announced that a new trailer would be coming on Thursday!

Meanwhile Gerard was busy freaking out.

and so were we.

Thursday, January 24th 2019

Lola came on to be excited with us while we waited for the new trailer to arrive.

Luckily we didn’t have to wait long and the trailer was initially dropped via Entertainment Weekly.

Their write up also filled us all in that Gerard was in fact singing in the trailer!

After their post Umbrella Academy also made sure the trailer was easily accessible to us!

(and we can speak from personal experience that they give the best hugs!)

Lindsey Way also was around to show her excitement.

And to keep the party going Lola made sure to let us know that they would be around to binge Umbrella Academy with us on Feb 15th!

And as if there wasn’t enough to be excited about, Lola quickly dropped another bomb on us by releasing Gerard’s new song from the show- Hazy Shade of Winter!

And could we really have a day like this without hearing from the man himself?

Once it was available, Lola made sure to give us the link to be able to purchase or stream Hazy Shade of Winter! (If you haven’t gotten it yet, get on it!)

Friday, January 25th 2019

Lola came back around to ponder snacks and make it clear they’d be around to binge with us.

They also indirectly called us odd in the process. We’re ok with that. haha

And since snacks were on our mind. We also had a delicious conversation with Umbrella Acad as well.

We also, through the help of some friends looking out, learned that there was new merch in the G store!

And we got a picture we had never seen before from the actress that plays Young Vanya.

And thanks to another friend we learned that the new Umbrella Academy merch at TFAW.com was also on sale (and it still is!)!

Saturday, January 26th 2019

Nick Derington is eagerly awaiting the Doom Patrol show that is being streamed on the DCU starting Feb 15th as well.

Sunday, January 27th 2019

Mikey Way posted a sweet post in support of his brother. To which Gerard replied to with 3 hearts.

We also got this laugh imagining Gerard write a song about weed for Kevin Smith.

Monday, January 28th 2019

Umbrella Academy put a spotlight on Pogo and we couldn’t be more excited to see him in action!

Tuesday, January 29th 2019

Lola let us know of a new promotion at the G store.

And left us with this hilarious thought to ponder.

The excitement was so big for the promotion that supplies ran out within SIX hours!

In other news Gerard seemed to have a “Great night” doing something Umbrella Academy related with UCP but we’re not quite sure what we’re just glad he had a great time.

Meanwhile Umbrella Academy showed us the cutest bunnies we’ve ever seen on the internet.

Wednesday, January 30th 2019

We woke up to some new posts from UCP promoting Umbrella Academy on instagram!

You should give them a follow if you haven’t already!

We also got to learn a little bit about Mother.

…or at least we think we did. 😉

With the promotion at the G store selling out so fast Lola worked quickly to make sure we got a new promotion as a thank you! We personally couldn’t be more thrilled with the Lola doll we just bought! You should grab one too!

Thursday, January 31st 2019

We’re not sure who is more excited about Umbrella Academy being released, Gabriel Ba or us!

Lola also came around to hang out for a little bit and also seems to be pretty excited.

 

Friday, February 1st 2019

We woke up to a plethora of early reviews for Umbrella Academy and all of them were raving about UA being the next big thing and a must see!

And after a courageous speech by Ellen Page, who called out our hateful leadership and took a stand for the LGBTQ community, Umbrella Academy had this wonderful reaction to give.

It was nice to see Gerard and the show supporting her.

We also started a new giveaway to celebrate Valentine’s day and the Umbrella Academy release to Netflix (It doesn’t end until 2/23 so you can still get in on it)! We also thought it was pretty neat that Lola came on to retweet and like a few of your replies!

And we got news that Shade the Changing Woman was released in Italy for our friends who speak Italian!

We also got a new interview from Ellen Page, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallaghar.

Saturday, February 2nd 2019

And we ended the week with a funeral. We didn’t like him all that much so it’s ok though.

And there you have it. A two week recap! Hope you enjoyed and we’ll be back to being on time next week!

 

 

I know I know. We’re super late getting this out this week! Sorry! Things have been pretty hectic in my life and I just couldn’t find the time to sit down and get this done. Better late than never right? 😉

Sunday Jan 13th 2019

We started off the week right with Number 5 looking for some drama!

Monday January 14th, 2019

Lindsey Way found some hidden treasures.

And we’re pretty sure Robert Sheehan had the most fun filming Umbrella Academy.

Also, Frank Iero dropped this cool interview where he talked about MCR getting together every year, MCRX and more.

Tuesday January 15th, 2019

Umbrella Academy’s got puns and Cha Cha’s got guns.

We hit the one month mark for Umbrella Academy’s release and everyone got super excited.

 

Wednesday January 16th, 2019

We got a preview of Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion Issue #5

And we’re happy to know Number 5 still loves his coffee.

And after weeks of silence we got a post from Gerard supporting Shade the Changing Woman!

Thursday January 17th, 2019

SVA, the school Gerard attended, gave us a helpful list of facts to know about Umbrella Academy before watching the show.

Friday January 18th, 2019

It’s a good thing that in Vanya’s world it’s music that kills, not looks….or we’d all be dead.

Saturday January 19th, 2019

Could you imagine if Vanya had a thing for Jordan Catalano?

And that’s pretty much it! It was a slow week, but since we already pretty deep into this week we can say that it picks up and gets real exciting so keep watching!

Hope you enjoyed and take care!

Are we really already done with the second week of January already? Time goes by so quick! Here’s everything you may have missed while you were busy working on those New Year Resolutions.

Sunday Jan 6th, 2019

While Gerard didn’t win an award and his character played a small part, we were super thrilled that SpiderVerse, a movie with Gerard’s character Peni Parker, won a Golden Globe.

Monday Jan 7th, 2019

Halsey is considering Gerard Way red hair! She put it to a vote that we don’t believe had accurate results and we demand a recount.

We also got a new teaser from Umbrella Academy!

And Lola made sure we didn’t miss this interview!

Tuesday Jan 8th, 2019

We ran a small giveaway for the person who had the funniest predictive text response to “I love Gerard Way because”. Even though the giveaway has ended, if you have some time to kill and you want a good laugh I highly suggest checking out the responses in the thread below.

And we were thrilled to get this upclose peek at Pogo from Umbrella Academy!

Wednesday Jan 9th, 2019

This day saw the release of Shade The Changing Woman in trade paperback!

We were also happy to see that Lola came online to say hi.

and send us some much needed love.

And the recipient of our Holiday Giveaway received her items!

Thursday Jan 10th, 2019

We got another sneak peek at Diego from Umbrella Academy!

And Lola pondered the important questions (or should we say filled us in on some life hacks).

Friday Jan 11th, 2019

Klaus swung by to haunt us.

Shipments started arriving for the Metaphysical issue that includes art from Lindsey Way!

And we found this rad new pic with Gerard and Jim Krueger!

Saturday Jan 12th, 2019

This was an exciting day!

Not only did we get a new teaser from Umbrella Academy!

But we also got to see a commercial for Umbrella Academy during play off football!

But that wasn’t all! We also got this post from Aidan where he showed us a glimpse of all the characters from when they were young.

We hope you enjoyed this weeks weekly recap and see you soon!

 

 

 

HEY! Hope you’re all having a great start to your 2019 and are ready to dive into the first weekly recap of the year! We had a lot of cool stuff happen this week from “Best of” lists to award nominations to interviews. Read on so you don’t miss anything!

Sunday Dec 23rd, 2018

Lindsey Way unknowingly starts plans for restaurant.

And while it actually was posted on the 29th we spotted it on the 30th that Eternity Girl was listed as one of Paste Magazine’s best 50 covers!

And this silly post went viral enough to be featured in one of twitter’s moments.

We also learned that once upon a time there was a Kerrang Radio coffee cup that Gerard drank out of that was then auctioned off! There may actually be someone out there to this day that licks a dirty coffee cup every morning…

Monday Dec 31st, 2018

It was New Years Eve and the fandom was filled with excitement as Danger Days is set in 2019 so they set up a hashtag to *eh hem* Make Some Noise.

But the best thing came from Lola! They let us know Gerard had posted a very long blog post on his website that gave us an entire recap of his year!

We were thrilled to get a new pic of Gerard

And here that he was doing better and making progress!

Gerard also mentioned playing games with Mikey and Jeremy Lambert in his post, so it was pretty rad when Mikey posted about it too!

Tuesday Jan 1st, 2019

The first post of the year that we felt was worth celebrating was this great shot of Mikey Way with his family.

While Umbrella Academy decided to be emo with Vanya….

And Dark Horse took a more positive approach!

Meanwhile Lindsey contemplated needing a cheese maker if she Jeremy and Jon were going to start a restaurant haha

And the 2018 lists came pouring out and we were able to find some pretty neat mentions (as if we didn’t expect to)!

As the day progressed Lindsey found her cheese maker….

Wednesday Jan 2nd, 2019

This was a glorious day because it was the day issue #4 of Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion was released!

And we ran to the store to pick it up!

We can relate to Dark Horse’s mention of that heart-to-heart between Vanya and Mother because OMG it’s mind bending.

Umbrella Academy also gave us another glimpse a formidable foe.

And we got to make someone very happy by giving away our Holiday Giveaway!

Thursday Jan 3rd, 2019

Lola came on to give us their opinion of Bird Box

And give us well wishes for the new year!

Mike Oeming shared with us this color concept for a cover of Cave Carson!

And Nick Derington let us know just how much he loves his job!

Friday Jan 4th, 2019

Our friend Miz Erie brought it to our attention that there was a new interview posted with Gerard by Den of Geek!

And almost immediately after our friend Amy let us know about this awesome video interview Gerard did with Collider!

We also found out that Umbrella Academy is nominated for a DIAMOND GEM Award for Best Comic of the Year!

Saturday Jan 5th, 2019

We got another sneak peak into the Umbrella Academy Netflix Series from the Umbrella Academy account.

And Jon Rivera warned a fan that Cave Carson gets “weird” in Vol. 2!

That’s it you guys! You’re all caught up for another week. Hope you enjoyed and see you on FUN twitter until next time!

Hey hey! It’s the first Weekly Recap in the New Year but it recaps last year. Does this make us time travelers? Are these new year’s jokes way too played out? Who knows! Let’s get to it!

Sunday Dec 23rd, 2018

Gerard posted an awesome Christmas playlist for all of us on Instagram!

Continue reading

Alot happened this week! From CCXP to Press Conferences to new music! Let’s get into it!

Sunday Dec 9th, 2018

We got a new Umbrella Academy poster!

Although they didn’t have any scheduled public events together on this day, Gerard and the cast of Umbrella Academy posed for this picture. We believe they may have been doing press.

At 3pm Brazilian time Gerard did a signing with Gabriel Ba.

And stopped to pose for this pic with a fan after the signing.

Gerard posted about Umbrella Academy being out on Feb 15th (as if we needed to be amped up some more haha)

And his ever amazing little brother posted to let us all know he’s proud!

Monday Dec. 10th, 2018

Umbrella Academy posted this picture on Instagram from Friday.

We also learned that on Friday night there was a taping of a late night talk show called The Noite that aired at 12:45am Tuesday in Brazil.

We knew Gerard was doing interviews on Monday but were shocked when this picture turned up and we were unable to locate a source.

Luckily with the help of our amazing friends at GWayFUN we were able to learn this was from a Press Conference from earlier in the day.

So far the only thing we’ve been able to find from the press conference was this video, but it’s in Portuguese.

And we also got this fun little clip that shows Gerard throwing a donut at the panel on Saturday.

And on a personal note, we posted our recap of CCXP! If you want full details of the con from Friday to Monday just click the link below!

Tuesday Dec. 11th, 2018

The Noite wasted no time getting their video posted of their interview after it had aired.

Also our friends Humbug and Lisa announced their comic, Deathwish, is now available for pre-order and will start shipping on Dec 21st!

Wednesday Dec, 12th, 2018

Gerard updated his instagram story!

Umbrella Academy started releasing a new line of promo posters for the cast of the show!

Gerard had fun with his toys…

But the big news of the day was that Cave Carson has an Interstellar Eye trade paperback was released! Make sure to pick it up the next time you’re out at your local comic book shop!

Thursday Dec. 13th, 2018

We started our day off with the most amazing news! Kristin and Mikey are expecting their second child!

Gerard also got in on the celebration!

Umbrella Academy posted this cool new gif of Hazel and Cha-Cha.

And when they posted it to Instagram, Gerard gave the best reply.

And then, thanks to the pre-order date on the Dasher merch in the G store, we were able to announce first (once it became midnight for one of our staff members, Ally, in Italy) that we were in fact getting the song on Dec. 14th!

A few hours later the ever wonderful Lola came on to confirm this and give us a sneak peak of the lyric video…

…which was followed up with a similar post from Gerard.

Friday Dec. 14th, 2018

As promised at midnight we received the song and the official lyric video (unless you live in the western parts of the US then you got it a little earlier).

After we had all slept, Gerard came around on Instagram to update his Instagram story.

And so did the featured artist on Dasher, Lydia Night!

And Umbrella Academy gave us a new promo photo!

We also held a friendly debate on our twitter asking what everyone thought the lines “She’s got dashes in her stars” means. We got a lot of really thoughtful insightful responses. Totally worth checking out the thread!

We also got a post from Ian Fowles that confirmed he played guitar on Dasher.

And our favorite little brother posted in support of Gerard’s new song!

Saturday Dec. 15th, 2018

And to end the week Gerard updated his instagram story…

…and we found some neat merch at Hot Topic on our Christmas shopping travels.

We hope you all enjoyed this weeks recap and had a lovely week yourselves!

Our adventure started on Friday when Umbrella Academy posted that we could expect a first look at the show to emerge from the panel on Saturday!

And Gerard took the time to pose with a couple fans at the airport when he arrived!

Gerard did a filming of a talk show with the case of Umbrella Academy set to air in Brazil 12/11/18 at 12:45am. We’ll keep you posted if it appears online!

And after the con @UmbrellaAcad posted this picture from Friday.

Saturday was a flurry of activity with 2 signings and a panel, but it started off with Gerard giving us a good morning post from Brazil.

At noon in Brazil bracelets were handed out for Gerard and Gabriel’s 5pm signing.

One of our other correspondents for this show got the chance to meet up with Gabriel Ba at his booth and he told her to keep an eye out on social media because Netflix had another surprise in store!

And sure enough, just as the 3pm signing was about to take place Netflix announced that Gerard and Gabriel had been added to a signing with the cast of Umbrella Academy for 7pm!

Which was great because it meant @raposatriste would also be able to meet Gerard at one of the signings!

There was some confusion as to whether Gerard would be at this singing because initial graphics that came out promoting the signing did not include him or Gabriel, but Gerard made sure to clear that all up when he added the updated graphic to his instagram story!

Just before the 3pm signing, Fabio Moon posted this awesome shot of Gerard and Gabriel Ba together!

The con wasn’t allowing photos to be taken at this signing but our friend was able to snap this picture at a distance of Gerard signing at 3pm with Gabriel Ba!

And Netflix Brasil hooked up with this high quality shot.

And this short video clip surfaced as well.

And this one too..

Meanwhile Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story with a video of Tom Hopper and David Castenada being silly where you can see Gerard and Gabriel in the background!

The next stop for Gerard was the 7pm (Brazil time) signing with the Umbrella Academy cast! Again, no photos were allowed, but we do have this one pic that Jeff King posted.

Once the panel was over and our friend had received her autograph from Gerard(!) we waited anxiously for the Umbrella Academy panel to begin!

Gerard was the first to be brought on stage as the panel began to get underway and our friend was there to capture the moment.

As was @UmbrellaAcad

 

People were super excited by the surprise of Ellen Page being present for the panel!

The first thing Gerard spoke of was how happy he was to be back in Brazil and his memories of coming to Brazil with MCR.

Here is a video that includes that moment:

A clip from the show was shown highlighting Aidan Gallagher’s role as Number 5.

After the scene (that was set in the donut shop) had ended people came out into the audience to give out donuts.

Fans were thrilled with their sweet treats!

After the donuts there were even more exciting news to come as Gerard admitted he contributed to scoring the show!

Which is great news especially for those of us who went to NC Comicon where he admitted that he was doing a cover of a song for the show also!

And that we could expect a lot of violence in the series.

Then another scene was shown, this time with Vanya.

After the clip a violinist came on stage to play and then Ellen spoke a little about her character.

As the panel was concluding the panelists all posed for this picture with the audience.

Once the panel ended Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story with some new pics from the panel

And here is a short video clip from Netflix. I was unable to locate this from an official source.

After the panel Gerard and the cast did an interview with the con where they entered a glass room and tv’s broadcasted the interview to con goers.

(We agree with Gerard)

After the interview Gerard posed for a couple pics with the cast.

An hour or so after the activity ended the entire internet celebrated with the release of the first trailer for Umbrella Academy!

And because we thought this was cool…check out how @UmbrellaAcad replied to us when we expressed our gratitude for the trailer! We feel like we’re a part of history now.

They also started rolling out some cool gifs we can’t wait to start using!

On Sunday morning we also received this cool new poster (that fans at the Netflix signing were able to get signed! Lucky ducks!)

And Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story to add two new photos of Gerard with the cast! We’re wondering if they met up to do interviews or maybe they all had breakfast together or something before they went off their separate ways to start the day.

They also posted this picture to Twitter:

Gerard had a light day at this con with just a signing at 3pm (Brazil time) and since photos were not allowed we weren’t able to turn up much but Omelete did post this picture:

And a couple fans were able to snag some:

We don’t know the circumstances surrounding this picture but after the signing Gerard did pose for a picture with this fan and she got to talk to him for a quick sec.

And that was con! We’re gonna let Gerard end this post because he says it best! Get ready!!

On Monday a press conference was held with Gerard and the cast.

Time to get back into the swing of things starting with Weekly Recap! Let’s go over what happened this past week shall we?

SUNDAY Dec 2nd 2018

We already knew that Gerard would be doing a panel at CCXP in Brazil for Umbrella Academy on Saturday Dec 8th at 8pm. However, Gabriel Ba announced on this day that he and Gerard would be doing two signings. One on Saturday at 5pm and one on Sunday at 3pm. Here are the details:
