My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way’s comic for second series

Can the Umbrella Academy save the world once more?

My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way‘s comic is set to return for a second series.

Way‘s superhero strip ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will return in November for a second six-issue series bearing the mysterious title ‘Dallas’.

The first issue is listed for publication by Dark Horse publishers on November 26.


Following on from first series, ‘Apocalypse Suite’, the plot is teased as follows: “The Umbrella Academy has saved the world, but the house they were raised in is destroyed.

“One member is bed-ridden, the side of her head held together with tape; and another has lost her voice, the source of her power.

“Now that they’ve fulfilled their destiny, does the Umbrella Academy have any future at all?”

Way previously told NME.COM that the second series would focus on “a tragic event in American history”.

The first series of The Umbrella Academy won a prestigious Eisner Award, the Oscar of the comics world.
