In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who had 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.… (mer)

Never thought I'd say this, but the series is way better than the comic in my opinion. It was just too fast-paced for me, no depth for the characters, and just not my kind of art style. I think I wouldn't have been able to follow at all, had I not seen the series before reading the comic. ( )

This was fast-paced and enjoyable, but it lacked a certain depth and explanation of the story. It was over way too quickly with too little explanation. The whole time I wasn't really sure who I was rooting for or what I was rooting for or why other than the avoidance of the end of the world. this is one of the few times where I think the adaptation is better, as in the Netflix show I was able to connect with the characters and some of their feeling and emotions. Unlike here where The Umbrella Academy has very little to no emotional development or personality away from Spaceboy who is "the leader". The Monkey showed more emotions in a diary except than most of the other characters did in the whole comic. It makes for a fun, quick-paced read, but I don't think it's a well-developed story that will keep anyone hooked on anything but the action and the seeming randomness of it all. I would really recommend that someone read this is they're a fan of the show unless they're looking for quick entertainment as it really does not add anything. ( )

AM I GOING TO BUY AND READ THIS JUST BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN BY ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SINGERS OF ALL TIMES AND WHO IS ALSO THE GUY I’VE BEEN HAVING A MAD CRUSH ON SINCE I WAS 14?

ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY YOU-CAN-BET-YOUR-ASS A BILLIONS TIMES YES I WILL!

I hate to admit it, but I kind of liked the television adaptation of the Umbrella Academy better than the original graphic novel... Way has written an interesting story, and Ba does a great job of bringing things to life visually, but the film version just has so much more life. Without having seen the series first, I don't think the graphic novel would have made as much sense, as Way barely has a chance to sketch his protagnists' backstory before they are thrown into chaos. There are always going to be missing elements to every character (that's what keeps us interested), but I honestly didn't see much to set up the various Umbrella Academy members' powers, their relationships, and their motivations- read: everything that made the television series so engaging. Not sure if I'll bother picking up the second volume of the series, or whether I'll just stick to the tv series. ( )

This really put me in the mood for season three of the show *grabby hands*

To my wife, Lindsey, for being my umbrella. GERARD
My greatest joy when finishing a page of The Umbrella Academy was to show it to my brother, to help me believe I'd just done that page. This book is dedicated to Fábio--it would not be possible without him. GABRIEL
