My Chemicals Romance Comics


Posted July 26, 2006 - By F M

My Chemical Romance frontman, artist and longtime comic fan Gerard Way just announced plans to pen his very own comic book series, titled The Umbrella Academy.

The six-issue series from Dark Horse Comics tells the story of world-renowned scientist/inventor/adventurer/entrepreneur/champion cricketer/space alien Sir Reginald Hargreeves and his family of super-powered superheroes.

Wow! It’s almost like he took the concept of X-Men and just gave it a new name! Boy, I wish I was a rock star…

"Umbrella Academy is the story of seven extraordinary, maladjusted individuals, their triumphs, tragedies, failures and disappointments," says a statement. "Most importantly, it's about a family of superhumans who need to learn to get past their spectacularly dysfunctional childhoods to defeat the Conductor and his evil Black Orchestra and do what they were born to: save the world."

Dark Horse has not set a release date for Umbrella Academy, though a mid-2007 is likely.
