Old friend of the site, Hannah Means-Shannon, now at Comicon.com picked up on a few more things from the Young Animal/Gerard Way panel earlier today that we hadn't picked up in our two bullet pointers earlier.
Such as that Bug: The Adventures Of Forager will see "the original Blue Beetle, a Yeti, and a chase through dimensions for "reality shards". It's something that has been talked about in Cave Carson, slightly changed. It's going to lead up to a Fall/Winter "event" when the books will tie together in a certain way, Way said. The shards have something to do with that."
We also learned that the Gyro became the Young Animal symbol as "Gerard Way said he wanted to do a tribute to Andy Warhol. It started as a hotdog, but morphed into different incarnations. The hotdog felt too "phallic", he said, and they wanted something "nurturing". He's always been interested in "worlds within things"."
And that in the Young Animal mixtape, "Way said he wants the songs to be from the worlds of the comics or reflect them. They are talking about recording a song that's by a band that Shade loves with Gerard Way and Cecil Castellucci involved."
