I’ve never been a fan of Dark Horse comics. They always seem to come second place to Marvel or DC (or even the newer #ImageComics). That being said, I was curious to see what #GerardWay and #GabrielBa’s comic book was all about (no matter its publishing company). Unfortunately, I never took the time to pick up the first volume and read it... but once #Netflix ordered a season of the series, I knew I had to watch it. Wow, was I surprised! #TheUmbrellaAcademy presents different than Marvel and DC. The acting is great; the storyline is solid, albeit twisty and turny; and the special effects — while not perfect — are respectable... Pogo looks great! The show works because the characters are so lifelike and enjoyable to watch. Can’t wait for season 2! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
