Dark Horse Direct Delivers Umbrella Academy Fine Art

Before it was a smash hit Netflix show, The Umbrella Academy was an acclaimed comic series featuring everyone’s favorite dysfunctional family. To celebrate the series, Dark Horse Direct presents their latest offering in fine art prints, featuring Yoshitaka Amano’s masterfully artistic interpretation of The Umbrella Academy comic series, originally created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá! Limited to just 500 available, don’t miss the opportunity to add this unique 24”x32” fine art print to your collection, filled with all of your favorite Umbrella Academy characters!

While searching for inspiration for this particular piece, Amano was on a veranda rooftop at his home in Japan one evening this last September 2019. There happened to be a beautiful Harvest Moon in the sky, that also coincided with the Japanese “Fifteen nights”, the phase of the moon’s path through the sky where the celestial body was perfectly full. It was in this moment, Amano imagined Spaceboy, and the rest of The Umbrella Academy, bursting out of the blinding moon falling upon their unsuspecting target.

Limited to a run of 500, these Giclée prints are hand numbered, with a foiled Yoshitaka Amano signature and will be sold for $99.99. The Umbrella Academy Fine Art Print by Yoshitaka Amano, “Harvest Moon” is available for pre-order exclusively on direct.darkhorse.com and is expected to start shipping March 18, 2020.

The Umbrella Academy is Renewed for a Second Season

The Umbrella Academy

Netflix has ordered a 10-episode second season of The Umbrella Academy. The television series is based on the comic series written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá and published by Dark Horse Comics.

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min will reprise their roles with production beginning this summer.

The series is about forty-three infants who are born to random, unconnected women on the same day in 1989. The women didn’t show signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who trains the kids to save the world. The family comes apart when they come together as adults to solve the death of their “father.”

Steve Blackman will return as the showrunner and executive producer.
