This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is??The Umbrella Academy, Vol. 1 & 2, by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba. Premiering in 2007,??Umbrella Academy is the brain-child of and first comic by Gerard Way, front-man of the band??My Chemical Romance.

It examines??the disfunctional lives of 7 super-powered people who were adopted and trained to save the world by the mysterious Sir Reginald Hargreeves.??In style it follows in the footsteps of Hellboy, Atomic Robo, and Invincible with a slightly tongue-in-cheek romp, with brilliant art by Gabriel Ba whose work we previously discussed on??Episode 58 ??? Daytripper.

In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Nimona, Rumble, Gotham Academy, Amory Wars: Second Stage Turbine Blade, and Oppolpolis for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Nimona.

We have t-shirts now.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kit DeForge, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.
