You Look Like Death: the spin-off of The Umbrella Academy is dedicated to Klaus
Dark Horse Comics has announced to the fans, an expansion of the world created by Gabriel Bá and Gerard Way with the first series spin-off official.
“You Look Like Death” will be a mini-series of six numbers, which serves as a prequel to the first volume of the series, focusing entirely on the character of the Séance (aka Klaus). The series will be written by co-creator Gerard Way, Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, Neverboy), illustrated by I. N. J. Culbard (Everything, The New Deadwardians), and written by Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion, Fight Club, 3). The co-creator Gabriel Bá will draw the covers for the series.
The official synopsis reads: “About ten years before the events of Apocalypse Suite, the eighteen-year-old Séance is expelled from the Academy. Then we went back to a place where his talents will be appreciated -- Hollywood. After an initial magical success, Klaus needs help and does not have his brothers there to save it”.
“For a long time, I wanted to tell the story of the life of Klaus Hargreeves after that the Umbrella Academy was dissolved and before the events of Apocalypse Suite,” said Way in a note. “I imagined a decade rather wild for Klaus – full of ups and downs, seedy places, excursions, supernatural, and battles the internal within itself. I am thrilled at the idea of finally being able to tell this story with my co-writer Shaun Simon, who sees the world of UA clearly as me. They are also excited to be working with a team so extraordinary with INJ Culbard, and Nate Piekos”.
“The sky is the limit to which we can expand the universe of Umbrella Academy,” he added Bá. “This series will be a surprise for the readers, and the great designs of Ian help you to determine the past of Klaus and build your own symbology and staff.”
The first number You Look Like Death, will be published on 17 June 2020. The season 2 of the TV series, instead, will debut on Netflix by the end of the year.
