The reunited Umbrella Academy launches into action to combat a robot crime spree and investigate a string of murdered violinists, all while trying to prevent the apocalypse. Meanwhile, the team's missing member--their powerless sister--slips further through the cracks, and into the very heart of a plot to destroy the world.

    Gabriel Bas pencils are a smorgasbord of ingenuity, detail and come to life in vividly vibrant panels which are enhanced by Dave Stewarts coloring. Every page and every panel is rich with visual information which almost makes it criminal to skim through the pages. This comic requires detailed study and for the reader to take in each and every scene for maximum enjoyment. Hasnt that always been the point of reading comics? This book is a rare treat and giant leap forward for the industry. Read Full Review
