A little silly for my liking.

Review by
The Umbrella Academy is an enjoyable read, and something a little out of the ordinary in the world of mainstream comics. Gerard Way's characters and basic scenario are inventive, but the primary reason to experience The Umbrella Academy is to immerse oneself in Gabriel Ba's beautiful line work - Ba is one of the most distinctive artists working in mainstream comics today, and the full force of his talent is put to good use in this unusual take on the oft-repeated "superhero family" theme. Dave Stewart's coloring is up to the challenge of bringing Ba's images to life, and the result is some genuine eye candy.

Kicks off great, drifts back closer to mediocrity. Still great fun.

I hated this book because it's not fair that Gerard Way is not only both an excellent comic book writer and artist, but he's the lead singer of a very popular band. That's just me being jealous though.The truth is that I thought this was a great read. The art was phenomenal. The story was unique and intriguing. I cared about the characters. I wish I could hate it, but I loved it.

Well drawn, unique graphic novel. It borrows a lot from The Watchmen, mainly in its portrayal of what life would actually be like for those with superpowers/superheroes. I enjoyed the book, but I'm not sure I see what made it voted best graphic novel of 2008 by the scream awards... I can't complain, though, I got it for free.
