umbrella_academyFor sometime I have been saying that I have been loving this series of books. We did not get the chance do are Q and A with Gerard Way this past weekend since he was busy with a project.

“Umbrella Academy” which premiered in 2007 on Free Comic Book day after a six great issues(Apocalypse Suite). Now the team  of  Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá are on a  second series right now called Umbrella Academy Dallas.

The story around the Umbrella Academy is a group of seven superheroes ( My favorite is Spaceboy) who reunite after the death of their adoptive father who was a famous entrepreneur, and carry out his plan to save the world. Think of the X-men meet a Terry Gilliam film.

I know this is something I am going to keep my eye on and I would love to see some crazy  animation on this film. I DON’T WANT A LIVE ACTION FILM
