the umbrella academy
In a few days Netflix will debut the second season of their Umbrella Academy TV show, based on the comic series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba. You could watch this family of superhero wannabes have adventures, or you could live them. The experience will soon be replicated in the form of a tabletop card game, and it’s on Kickstarter this moment.
The Umbrella Academy is returning for a second shot at greatness on Netflix…but its members cannot physically reunite to promote that fact! Fortunately this season was already filmed pre-pandemic, but getting a trailer together required some remote cooperation.
In 1989 a series of strange births took place all over the world. Women who just days ago had not been pregnant suddenly grew large bellies and expunged babies imbued with superpowers.. A billionaire industrialist tracked down as many as he could, adopted them all, and revealed them to the world as his brand-new superhero team The Umbrella Academy!
