Ep. 17: "The Umbrella Academy" Vol. 1&2
What would you do if mysterious babies with powers were all born at the exact same moment all over the world? You’d adopt them and build a pre-pubescent superhero team, of course! This episode we cover Umbrella Academy by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance fame) and Gabriel Ba. We follow the story of an estranged super family trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered childhoods all while saving the world. It’s got romance, intrigue, violence, and that classic MCR theatrics. Tune in to hear how we liked it.
Warning: We will be reviewing the book in excruciating detail. If you have not read it and want to, please read the book (and/or check out a previous episode) before listening to this episode. If you want to know what happens without reading it, then let it ride!
