Gerard Way Publishes 'The Umbrella Academy' Volume 3
My Chemical Romance fans rejoice! After a decade since its announcement, frontman Gerard Way has shared news that the third volume his graphic novel series The Umbrella Academy — illustrated by Gabriel Bá — is now available for purchase in hard copy and in digital format.

In a post on Instagram last night (September 17), Way revealed that volume three, titled Hotel Oblivion, is available now everywhere comics are sold. He also revealed that a special edition will be sold exclusively at Barnes & Noble for hardcore fans. Both covers can be seen in the post down below.

About the latest series instalment, Way had this to say:

Over the years, there were some false starts and every time I came back to the project I had to make it new for myself, fine-tuning the themes and characters. I am very happy with the results and hope you enjoy it if you plan on checking it out. Coincidentally, I just started Volume 4, so hopefully it won't be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how this volume ends on a major cliffhanger.

Earlier this year, The Umbrella Academy was adapted for a wildly popular Netflix series of the same name. Starring Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige and Robert Sheehan, among others, Season 1 focused primarily on the plot of the first graphic novel Apocalypse Suite.

The series has since been renewed for a second season. If Netflix continues with the series, it looks as if we could be in for another three seasons or more.

Take a look at the new graphic novel below.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion—  In Stores and Digital Available Now! This one was a long time in the making. Announced way back in 2009, a lot of things happened in between the announcement and the actual release of this, for @gabriel_ba and myself. Lots of life stuff, other projects, emotional growth and experience gained. Over the years, there were some false starts and every time I came back to the project I had to make it new for myself, fine-tuning the themes and characters. I am very happy with the results and hope you enjoy it if you plan on checking it out. Coincidentally, I just started Volume 4, so hopefully it won't be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how this volume ends on a major cliffhanger.
