Way just shared an incredble drawing by Umbrella Academy's illustrator Fabio Moon. The image gives a look into the production's first table reading with the full cast.
“This was a particularly exciting day, as we got to hear the full cast read through the script,” Way wrote. “The show is coming out great— great cast, great crew, great everyone!”

Netflix officially rounded out the cast for the upcoming series back in November, with Ellen Page playing Vanya, the black sheep of her dysfunctional family of superheroes, known as the Umbrella Academy. Joining Page is Tom Hopper (Game Of Thrones), Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher.
Way announced back in July that the series would officially be headed to Netflix, with a reported 10-episode series slated for a 2018 debut.
“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix,” Way said. “I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and myself had when creating the comic and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live-action show.”
