Dark Horse Comics announced the release just in time for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Check out below what we know about the new series so far.
Dark Horse Comics announced today the comic book’s third series The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion.
The story of Hotel Oblivion will be told in seven issues, starting October 3, 2018.
According to the description, the series will return “stranger than ever,” and we’ll see the superheroes dealing with some complications from their pasts. Check out official synopsis in full below:
“The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion finds the Umbrella Academy scattered after Sir Reginald Hargreeves’ death. Number Five is a hired gun, Kraken is stalking big game, Rumor is dealing with the wreckage of her marriage, a rotund Spaceboy runs around the streets of Tokyo, Vanya continues her physical therapy after being shot in the head—and no one wants to even mention Seance until issue #2.”
Plus, if you’re too anxious to wait until October, Dark Horse Comics announced it will debut two Umbrella Academy convention exclusives at Comic-Con.
