Umbrella Academy 1 – Apocalypse Suite

Umbrella Academy 1 – Apocalypse Suite. – ‘In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born to women who’d previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, “To save the world.” These seven children form the Umbrella Academy, a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers. Their first adventure at the age of ten pits them against an erratic and deadly Eiffel Tower, piloted by the fearsome zombie-robot Gustave Eiffel. Nearly a decade later, the team disbands, but when Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, these disgruntled siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again.’

Pers

“…remarkably polished… Those who like space-squid wrasslin’and zombie-robot versions of eminent 19th-century engineers should be in heaven.”-Las Vegas Weekly

“Way…combines an arch Victorian sensibility with an impish jet-setting impulsiveness for a wry, slightly gothic debut.”-Washington Post

“…flawlesss…stylish, imaginative…”-Newsarama

“An ultraviolet psychedelic sherbet bomb of wit and ideas. The superheroes of the 21st century are here at last.”-Grant Morrisson

Televsieserie

Splash Report bericht op 6 juli 2017 dat er een Netflix-serie van Umbrella Academy in de maak is. Wat bekend is, is dat Gerard Way op een of andere manier betrokken zal zijn, en dat men, later in 2017, op de Comic Con van San Diego meer nieuws verwacht. Er zou al eerder sprake zijn van een film, maar daar lijkt men nu van af te zien.
