    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Sep 16, 2020

    While this may only be the intro to this latest mini-series it's good fun and sure to delight fans of The Umbrella Academy. Klaus is one of the funnier characters in the series and putting him into the spotlight is an excellent decision. I.N.J. Culbard does a great job with the art, capturing the feel of Ba's Umbrella Academy without feeling like he's just imitating him. An excellent first issue, whether a seasoned fan or new to the series there's something for everyone here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Trey Campbell Sep 14, 2020

    This is a fairly middle-of the road introductory issue. It offers a good setup for a story with great potential but offers very little outside of that. Future issues will decide if this is a must read or just for die-hard Umbrella Academy readers. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 12, 2020

    You Look Like Death #1 is a direct hit to the pleasure-feeling parts of your brain. I got the same feeling from reading this comic as I did driving into cop cars and hapless civilians in the Grand Theft Auto games sans all the unnecessary carnage. Klaus uses his powers for pure hedonism, angers authority figures, and has a good time, rinse and repeat. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Arbaz M. Khan Sep 15, 2020

    In one of the best reactions to an adaptation's success, Way manages to properly embrace the world of the TV show and channel it back into another successful comic. The book takes certain characterizations from the show and brings it into canon. It is such a joy to be able to get more Umbrella Academy in this medium, building on one of its most innovative characters from the series.  Read Full Review
