A Christmas Comic Wish

Hi. So, this isn't a blog, and I hope that's not a big problem, but I need to put this out to Mr Way if he's looking:

I have a little brother who I'm incredibly close to. Him and I share a huge love of comics and music, and have been bonding over them for years. I'm an OG MCR fan, and he's been into the Umbrella Academy for a while now, so we've got the Gerard Way love pretty much down :) Anyway, we grew up pretty much best friends, despite the seven year age gap between us, lived together for a while after he moved out of our mom's place, and spend pretty much all our time together. We're both guitarists (although the kid's infinitely more talented than I am), and even played in a few bands together when I lived there.

I recently moved abroad to start paying off my student loan. It's the longest I've ever been away from him (including college, when I'd pretty much be down every other weekend to visit), and I'm officially going to be missing Christmas at home for the first time ever. I was wondering if there was any way I could get a signed copy of The Umbrella Academy #1 sent to him before the 25th? Ha, I sound like such an idiot, straight up asking favours from people I don't know, but I know this is something he would really love, and that's really important to me. It would be the most amazing thing if I could organise this.

I know there are probably a lot of cats on the internet trying to scam free stuff out of the band or whatever. You guys have my contact details, though, so I would be happy to answer any questions you have or provide any proof you need that we're real people or whatever via email :) I'd also be happy to pay postage (he lives in South Africa) and whatnot. I hope it's not really presumptuous to be here asking, but it'd be incredible if this could happen.

Thanks for all the great work, you guys :)

All the best.

- A huge fan
