    Umbrella Academy is an evolutionary step in superhero comics. I have a feeling that in ten years, praise like "well ahead of its time" will be printed on the back of collected editions.

    Im big into this book. The art rocks, the writing is solid, the narrative itself is set to deliver one whole megaton of epic; this thing is getting great. The Umbrella Academy becomes a recommendation for all of those points. But these are one mans opinions; youll have to read what my colleagues have to say if you want a consensus. Read Full Review

    Besides, if the worst thing you can say about a comic book is that some of the previous issues were better, than you've got a really good comic book on your hands. Read Full Review
