Original 'Umbrella Academy' Comics to Receive Deluxe Reprints
Fresh off a successful first season on Netflix and the relaunch of the property in comics, the first two outings for Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s The Umbrella Academy are set to return in brand-new deluxe editions from Dark Horse Comics later this year, including never-before-seen material alongside the original comic book runs.
The new editions, slated to be released this fall, upgrade the Umbrella Academy collections into oversized hardcovers in a similar format to other hit Dark Horse series, including Black Hammer, Harrow County and Hellboy. Covers for each of the titles can be seen above.
Both Library Editions collect the core miniseries named in each title, as well as ancillary material from the period. The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite includes the complete 2008 series that launched the concept, as well as the short stories “Mon Dieu!” and “But the Past Ain’t Through With You,” plus a 50-page sketchbook section containing work from Way, Bá and designer Tony Ong. The Umbrella Academy: Dallas contains the 2009 series as well as the short “Anywhere But Here,” plus a 36-page sketchbook section.
The Apocalypse Suite Library Edition will be released Sept. 11, with Dallas following Nov. 13. A paperback edition of the most recent Umbrella Academy miniseries, Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion, will also be released in the same time period, hitting stores Sept. 17.
