Description

The Umbrella Academy is a very Dark Horse Comics type of book. The artwork by Gabriel Bá is angular and moody like Mike Mignola's Hellboy. The writing by Gerard Way is quirky and about something deeper than just another superhero story. It's got robots, aliens and monsters but at its core, the book is about a dysfunctional family. I talk about what I think works and how it overcomes its flaws.
