The comic of Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba will finally have the adaptation that they have been promising since 2007.
For years there has been talk of an adaptation of The Umbrella Academy, a praised comic created by Gerard Way, co-creator of the late band My Chemical Romance, and the Brazilian artist Gabriel Ba.
The comic published by Dark Horse was spotted from 2007 as a film adaptation by Universal Pictures, which never progressed, and in 2015 it was announced that the idea would ultimately be to turn it into a TV series. And now, according to Splash Report, the adaptation will take place on Netflix and its announcement would be announced at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con.
The comic, which won the Eisner Prize, tackles a dysfunctional superhero team that brought together children with extraordinary skills until something very bad breaks the family in which they are all adopted. Nine years later, on the death of his adoptive father and mentor, the brothers must meet to face a terrible threat on the world.
