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…
Yup, they did, lol. The original article is gone, but here's a thread about it: https://t.co/yE6j9JX0ba

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.
A heart-to-heart with Mother leads Vanya to reassess what makes her special. Read the comics before the @UmbrellaAcad Netflix show arrives! THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY: HOTEL OBLIVION #4: https://t.co/yUucUxR0MC
