Umbrella Academy #NewComicBookDay 3rd January 2019


New Comic Book Day with The Umbrella Academy.

It’s the first new comic book day of 2019 in the UK today. These are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics that should be available today from your local comic book store including The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion #4.



Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

Issue No.: 4

Creative Team:  Gerard Way –  Writer :  Gabriel Bá –  Artist, Cover Artist :  –  Colorist

With a Netflix series on the way in February this is an ideal time to get to know the members of The Umbrella Academy. I was a big fan of Apocalypse Suite and Dallas, the first two stories in the Umbrella Academy series and this long awaited follow up is just as enjoyable. Solid story telling from rock star Gerard Way with superb art from Gabriel Bá this is a series well worth picking up. Highly recommended.

From the Publisher:

“A heart-to-heart with Mother leads Vanya (a.k.a. The White Violin) to reassess what makes her special. Two of her siblings are caught in a shootout, and two more have a cosmic moment, while the bad guys infiltrate the Hotel. “



Publisher: Marvel

Issue No.: 1

Creative Team:  Benjamin Percy –  Writer :  Marcio Takara –  Artist :  Rafael Albuquerque –  Cover Artist :  Gabriel Hernandez Walta –  Variant Cover Artist

A huge hit last year as a full cast podcast series, Wolverine: The Long Night makes its comic debut this week.

From the Publisher:

“Following a string of mysterious deaths in Burns, Alaska, Special Agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall arrive to investigate. They soon find there’s more going on than meets the eye…

Marvel’s hit scripted podcast, “Wolverine: The Dark Night,” comes to life on the page! Chilling twists and turns, brought to you by the original author of the podcast, Benjamin Percy, and the art talents of Marcio Takara! “
