Before Gerard Way was the lead singer of My Chemical Romance, he was an aspiring animator and comic-book artist working for the Cartoon Network. Years later, his first graphic novel is finally out, as The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite collects the first six issues of his arch and funny comics series, snappily illustrated by Gabriel Bá. What happens to superkids when they grow up? And what happens to a family that’s been built on lies when those lies fall apart?
After the jump, check out an exclusive twelve-page preview of the book, which is out now from Dark Horse.
