To celebrate the release of The Umbrella Academy, NME has put together a special issue which you can pick up for free from Friday.
The creation of former My Chemical Romance frontman turned solo star Gerard Way, the graphic novel adaptation tells the tale of a group of kids – Spaceboy, the Kraken, the Rumor, the Séance, Number Five, the Horror, and the White Violin – born within 24 hours to women who weren’t even pregnant when they woke up.
The “gifted” young people are adopted by billionaire Reginald Hargreeves as children, who aimed to hone their powers until they were strong enough to save the world. Hargreeves is suddenly found dead and the heroes must come together to investigate his death.
The show will arrive on Netflix on February 15, 2019, and will star Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige.
To celebrate, you can pick up a special print copy of NME coming out this Friday (February 15) to celebrate the release of The Umbrella Academy. In it, you’ll find exclusive interviews with the cast, and Gerard Way, and even a one-off, seven-page Umbrella Academy comic.
You can get your FREE copy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or pick one up at selected gigs and stores around the UK. See the full list below.
