Netflix‘s The Umbrella Academy has become a smash hit since its debut and now we’re getting our first look at a book reflecting the transition from Gerard Way‘s comic series to coming to the streaming service.
In an exclusive with Screen Rant, a handful of pages from the upcoming release are on display showing behind the scenes looks, early character concepts and more.
The Making of the Umbrella Academy is documenting a lot of the early developments leading from the comic series to the show.
One page available shows off collectables including a lunchbox, trading cards, and posters.
