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:

MONDAY Dec 3rd, 2018

We released our pictures from the last panel of NC Comicon “Designing D&D Characters With Gerard Way”.

And our recap of NC Comicon that included our review and all of our pictures and videos that we released in order.

Lola liked it so we hope you enjoy it too!

We also learned that there was new merch available at the G store!

TUESDAY Dec 4th 2018

Umbrella Academy released another teaser that we can all relate to.

And Lola came on to be excited with some people whose Black Friday/Cyber Monday items were arriving!

WEDNESDAY Dec 5th 2018

NC Comicon released a short video recap.

Umbrella Academy posted another teaser pic.

We loved their solid advice on what to do when encountering Hazel & Cha Cha:

Then Gerard came on to remind us all that Umbrella Academy Hotel Oblivion Issue #3 came out and leaving us all to read it while speculating which was his favorite scene. (We think it’s the scene with Rumor and her family, just sayin.)

The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion: Issue 3 ⠀ In stores now!⠀ ⠀ I’ve been eagerly waiting for this issue to come out so you guys can check it out. ⠀ ⠀ I distinctly remember being in a hotel in Europe on tour, and breaking this issue down, hand writing it on a legal pad very quickly as the ideas came rolling out. It has my favorite scene and my favorite moment of the series. One of the things I love about Umbrella Academy is that over time, we really see what some of the characters are made of. How they react to things and the choices they make always surprises me, and I feel like I’m learning more about them all the time. Some of our characters have very nasty things about them, and I feel like that makes them more flesh and blood. The good and the bad. It is without a doubt the most rewarding experience I have writing comics.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Apologies for the years long wait for this series, but we wanted to get it just right, and I think we accomplished that. My favorite UA series since the first. I love Dallas but time travel is a headache. #umbrellaacademy #hoteloblivion #darkhorsecomics #ncbd # comics

SATURDAY Dec 8th, 2018

Today Gerard was at CCXP and there was a lot of amazing things that happened. We’re gonna give you a quick overview here, but you can also check out our full review of CCXP which we are working on now and will release soon!

Gerard says good morning from Brazil while showing us a picture of the giant cat at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Brazil. This thing even purrs!

Bracelets for the 5pm signing went quickly and left a lot of fans looking for ways to meet Gerard. It was nice to see that Gabriel did his best to look out for those fans without giving too much away!

The first event for Gerard was a 5pm signing with Gabriel Ba

Then he went to the 7pm signing with the cast of Umbrella Academy.

Next up was the panel, where there was a surprise appearance by Ellen Page!

At the panel several clips were shown including the official trailer which @UmbrellaAcad released to all of us online later in the evening.

After the panel Gerard and the cast went to an interview that was held at the con and broadcasted on screens throughout the convention center.

And for the last event of the night he posed for this picture.

We at FUN were pretty busy too!

We started our Holiday Giveaway!

And launched a FUN Chat with our brand new graphic done by the incredibly talented Humbug!

And that’s what happened this week! We hope you enjoyed it!
