Ich hab ja ehrlich gesagt keine Ahnung was ich davon jetzt halten soll 😆 ( )
  BarbsLory | Sep 3, 2021 |
I'm one of those late-to-the-party losers who knew of Umbrella Academy, but never got around to reading it until just now, long after I'd watched season one of the Netflix show.

So, bear in mind, my thoughts are going to be filtered through having experienced the excellent, but wildly different show.

Having said all that, I know the graphic novel is always a different animal to the live-action adaptation. Just look at something like [b:Wanted|160848|Wanted|Mark Millar|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1355855954l/160848._SY75_.jpg|1475550], or even [b:Civil War: A Marvel Comics Event|91714|Civil War A Marvel Comics Event|Mark Millar|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1345813608l/91714._SY75_.jpg|577888]. This one's no different. Much more irreverent, much less backstory and character development, but just a whole lot of fun, with some serious bizarreness thrown in along the way.

Once again, the art is very cartoonish, and, while it mostly suits this storyline, it'll never be a favourite of mine. But it gets the job done.

Definitely looking forward to the next two volumes. Now I only have to hope Full Daffy, that arbiter of intelligence, doesn't think I'm too stupid to read this series too.

Reread 2019, entry for Volume #1: Suite/Volume #2: Dallas (& 1st half of Volume #3: Hotel)

I was just post watching Netflix's Umbrella Academy. I still find these books rough around the ears, on the edges, with a good dose of kid needing to be lightly (and even in places not so lightly) thumped on the head. Which doesn't change that I still read it eons ago, and that I'd been excited since the moment the announcement for the show got made, even though I drug my feet for a week or so before watching after it was released.

I still love the utter zany comic-book-ness of the comics that the show doesn't have. More robots, and belts that let you fly, and statues that come to life and are your villains. This team of superheroes that are basically a team of superhero rejects in some ways, who we know so little about the childhood and adulthood of, only why they were suddenly brought back together.

The art is still rough, but I still have so much more association with the art than I expected. Even for their being drastically more in the show, I still felt more at home seeing the Umbrella universe through its original vantage point it was created for.

(I'm definitely still far more attached to the trio of brothers being stuck in the past together. I'm painfully glad Allison complicated relationship turned unswerving devotion to Vanya from the books stayed in. I'm glad the whole of Luther & Allison is still there. I'm glad they gave Klaus a bit more life, though I still go back and forth on the calming of Diego for the show. I'm still wondering if they actually nerfed Allison's powers, because that would be sad.

For Hotel Specifically - I still am dying to see what the comics do with the implications of Five & Vanya, too. And with what looks like it is leading toward the reveal of what happened to the other children who were not bought and collected by Reginald Hargreeves, which I'm both excited and hugely wary of having in my hands.)

Meh. Not really my thing, but at least now that I've seen the source material, I'm even more impressed by the TV show. ( )

I enjoyed this, but I’m not sure I would have caught much of the plot or character development had I not seen the Netflix series first. Admittedly I don’t read graphic novels often, so maybe I am just a novice reader, but this felt very underdeveloped story-wise for me. I am looking forward to reading the second installment! ( )
