The Umbrella Academy has become quite the sensation! Not only has it transitioned from comic book (by Dark Horse Comics) to a successful Netflix show, it’s a card game too! A lot of it owes a debt to writer/creator Gerard Way‘s story of a dysfunctional family of superheroes and Gabriel Bá‘s artistic style.

The game exceeded crowdfunding expectations, and if you want in on an early release, now is the time to visit the Kickstarter page..
