darkhorse.gifGerard Way gives the world a sneak peek at the upcoming Umbrella Academy series!

To celebrate the highly anticipated release of The Black Parade, the new album from My Chemical Romance, Dark Horse is proud to preview Gerard’s upcoming comics series, The Umbrella Academy.

The Umbrella Academy tells the story of seven extraordinary, maladjusted individuals and their plight to protect the planet. The series begins when the Umbrella Academy, now grown-up and disbanded, learn their adoptive father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves, aka
The Monocle, has died. When the former team members become aware of a new world-ending threat, they must put their personal and inter-personal problems aside and unite the super-group once more to do what they were born to do—save the world.
While continuing to work on the first series, Gerard has put together a special web comic strip as a preview that is available exclusively at www.darkhorse.com.

Written by Way, with artwork from De:Tales co-creator Gabriel Bá, this new strip is sure to draw you into what promises to be one of the biggest events in comics this coming year.
