Following the release of his second Electric Century album (and accompanying graphic novel) earlier this year, Mikey Way is set to guest at this year's New York Comic Con.

Joining comic co-writer Shaun Simon, plus Ice Nine Kills frontman Spencer Charnas and members of GWAR, for the Z2 Comics panel this coming Friday, the My Chemical Romance bassist enthuses: "I’m beyond excited!! This was the convention I went to growing up, so it’s an honor to be attending as a guest."

Read this: Mikey Way: "Don’t be so preoccupied with yesterday and tomorrow, because there’s a whole today that you’re gonna miss"

Mikey, Shaun, Spencer and GWAR "plus perhaps a few surprise guests" will be discussing how "artists are redefining art and music in tandem with an entirely new format and experience" during their special panel, with Z2 explaining of this joining of forces: "In 2021, Z2 Comics published graphic novel tie-ins Ice Nine Kills’ fan favorite album The Silver Scream, as well as all-new immersive experiences meant to be consumed together, with Mikey Way’s Electric Century and Graham Coxon’s Superstate. In 2022, everyone’s favorite scum dogs GWAR will join the party with an all-new album and graphic novel."
