The Umbrella Academy debuts with a 12-page story set before the start of the Eisner Award-winning series, Apocalypse Suite!
Conceived and written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), The Umbrella Academy features interior art by Gabriel B· (Casanova) and Dave Stewart (Hellboy) and a cover by multiple-Eisner-Award-winning artist James Jean (Fables).
In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by 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.
