Umbrella Academy - Gerard Way

Family dynamics, time travel, a talking monkey and a violin are the important parts of the Umbrella Academy, is the story of 7 young children with super powers and no one to fight, at least not until their adoptive father dies and they reunite for the funeral. The 7 have all grown up, living different lives and now they have to figure out how to work together to solve all the strange activities. They are in a battle to save the world from the final destruction, but who is it they have to fight? I liked the art work in this story, angular and colorful. The story itself was a bit quirky, and the method of destruction was surprising.

This is my 24th graphic novel, I've finished the challenge! It's been a lot of fun.
