Umbrella Academy Apoclypse Suite #1,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
GERARD WAY (W), GABRIEL BÁ (A), DAVE STEWART (C), and JAMES JEAN (Cover)
Once, the Umbrella Academy was unstoppable. Under the tutelage of their guardian and mentor, Dr. Reginald Hargreeves, its members spent their childhoods fighting evil and honing their extraordinary gifts.
Until something went terribly wrong.
Now, nine years later, the estranged members of the Umbrella Academy are reunited by the death of the only parent they’ve ever known and the rise of a new and terrible threat. Will they be able to overcome their history for long enough to save the world—one more time?
Conceived and written by Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance, Umbrella Academy features interior art by Eisner Award-nominated artist Gabriel Bá (De:Tales), colors by Eisner Award-winning colorist Dave Stewart, and covers by multiple-Eisner Award-winning painter James Jean (Fables).
From writer Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance!
"Do you love Mike Mignola? I mean, REALLY love Mike Mignola? Do you want to ask him to Homecoming? Well, back off sister, ‘cause Gerard Way was there first. Gerard Way gets all up in Mignola’s oeuvre (can I say “oeuvre”?) and makes a sweet, sweet Umbrella Academy baby with it. And that baby’s cute and weird. But still cute. If you’ve been wanting to see how awesome a Mike Mignola-themed superhero comic would be, but lacked the imagination/teen-girl-fanbase to get it made, Umbrella Academy’s your chance."
