Here's the series premise, from what my brain tells me. And frankly, I trust that thing as far as I can throw it. Which would be zero distance. Because I'd die. Also, why don't they put the creative teams' names in full, like this? Surname-only seems a disservice.

Plus, a spirit guide who's a half-naked vintage strongman. As you do. Check it!

'When we decided we were gonna move forward with an imprint, Dan [DiDio] handed me an encyclopedia of DC characters and let me go through it. I found this entry that was super small, and it was Cave Carson. And I was like, “Who the hell is Cave Carson?” It said nothing about him really except that he was a spelunker, and he had a cybernetic eye, and I was like, “That’s it. It’s all about this eye.” There really wasn’t any info on it. It was just a cosmetic device that the writer of Resurrection Man had put in there to show that time had passed for the character, that he had adventures. But no one ever explained how he got the eye.' -- Gerard Way

I posted a little clip from the FCBD of Umbrella Academy a few weeks ago and since then I've had the chance to read Dallas, the second collection of the series.

It's pretty good, with some interesting ideas (and some repeated ones). I kind of want to sit down and just read through both series in one go to get the full feel of the book, instead of dipping in and out over the course of a few weeks.

For the uninitiated, the Umbrella Academy are the result of mysterious births. 7 of them were adopted by the Monocle/Sir Reginald Hargreeves, 6 of them had super powers. He assembled them into a superhero team.

We begin pretty quickly, with the child Umbrella Academy against the Lincoln Monument. )

After having it hovering on my wish list, I splashed out on The Apocalypse Suite. The collection includes the FCBD book from Dark Horse, of which two pages are reproduced below as an example of the art, humour and sensibilities of the book.

Does not contain any members of the Umbrella Academy )
