To return to their pre-doomsday existence, will they? A blip in the timeline, perhaps, or something more sinister?”
Author Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance) and illustrator Gabriel Bá (of Daytripper) are co-executive producers of The Umbrella Academy, which is based on their comic book of the same name (Jeff F.
