Up Up and A Way

October 26, 2007

When alumnus Gerard Way (BFA 1999 Cartooning) isn’t busy touring the world as front man for the rock band My Chemical Romance, he makes time to put his SVA-honed cartooning skills to work. Umbrella Academy, a comic book published by the Dark Horse Comics imprint, is a limited series telling the story of the titular group, a disbanded team of superheroes who reunite after their adoptive father dies.

Way wrote each of the series’ half-dozen issues and brought in fellow alumnus James Jean (BFA 2001 Illustration) to create the eye-catching wraparound cover art. The “Apocalypse Suite” storyline began with the September issue of Umbrella Academy and continues throughout the next five issues.
