As shared through Twitter via fangroups and as posted on Smashpages.net, it’s been announced that Gerard Way will be releasing a song as soundtrack to the comic Cave Carson, published by the Young Animal imprint at DC Comics, and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming, on Record Store Day 2017, April 22nd.

The “limited edition picture disc” will include the song “Into the Cave We Wander” and a 3 page all-new Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye comic story by Way and artist Michael Allred. The song has been recorded by Way and former bandmate Ray Toro.
Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye is a comic that follows underground explorer Cave Carson through his at times psychedelic adventures with the ancient races that live under the earth as they face significant threats, and as Cave negotiates his relationships with his subterranean princess daughter and teammates.
The release will also include a poster by Nick Derington (artist on Young Animal’s Doom Patrol) that features characters from the Young Animal comics and the comic inclusion in the set will actually be a 40 page book that includes the new 3-pager and also previews of various comics in the Young Animal line.
