Having read the preview of Umbrella Academy from Free Comic day, the Apocalypse Suite is not what I expected. Gerard Way keeps on surprising me and I'm not sure if it's a good surprise in this case. Apocalypse Suite doesn't pull any punches and as a result, we have a very stark portrayal of our superheroes here. They aren't very nice (it can goes beyond dysfunctional and messed-up) and they can be unlikable at times. Still, I like the art (Gabriel Ba is love) and narrative, very unique.
