MTV Geek has learned exclusively that "My Chemical Romance" lead vocalist Gerard Way will be moderating "The Aquabats! Super Show!" panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con for The Hub TV Network. Way is no stranger to comic books, having created and authored the Eisner-winning "Umbrella Academy" graphic novel series from Dark Horse (and recently optioned by Universal).
The panel info is as follows:
Friday, July 13, “The Aquabats! Super Show!”Inside the BattleTram (8:00 p.m., Room 7AB)
The band of five heroes out to save the world from boredom - Ricky Fitness, Jimmy the Robot, Crash McLarson, EagleBones Falconhawk, and The M.C. Bat Commander - plan to arrive at the 2012 Comic-Con International in San Diego ready for battle. Fans can anticipate a special guest moderator and meet the stars of The Hub TV Network’s new hit series. The legions of Aquabats fans will have a gnarly time with the awesomest super hero, rock music band ever to hit San Diego!
People hungry for more "Aquabats" at SDCC can also check them out the House of Blues on Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. PT. The all-ages concern will blend live-action comedic sketches with animation segments sprinkled throughout, and tickets can be purchased in advance directly through the House of Blues at: http://www.houseofblues.com/tickets/eventdetail.php?eventid=74487
