Description

The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite

The complete graphic novel

Writer: Gerard Way

Artist: Gabriel Bá

Letterer: Nate Piekos

Colorist: Dave Stewart

Cover Artist: James Jean

The New York Times best-selling series and 2008’s #1 graphic novel on amazon.com comes to iTunes!

Conceived and written by Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy features interior art by Eisner Award–winning artist Gabriel Bá and Eisner Award–winning colorist Dave Stewart, and covers by multiple Eisner Award–winning painter James Jean.

In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who'd previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, "To save the world."

These seven children form The Umbrella Academy, a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers. Their first adventure at the age of ten pits them against an erratic and deadly Eiffel Tower, piloted by the fearsome zombie-robot Gustave Eiffel. Nearly a decade later, the team disbands, but when Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, these disgruntled siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again.

This app collects the full story: issues #1–#6 of The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite.

“An ultraviolet psychedelic sherbet bomb of wit and ideas. The superheroes of the 21st century are here at last . . .” —Grant Morrison

Interior art by Eisner nominee Gabriel Bá, recently featured as one of Entertainment Weekly’s Top 100 cartoonists.

Great comic

:
This is a great app, if you need to have a amazing looking and wonderfully written comic on your mobile device, this is it. Great price and well worth the ability to bring it along to show friends what you new comic addiction is. Love it, now we just need the second volume out. Yay dark horse.

4/5 stars

Amazing comic; app needs work.

:
I gave this app four stars because, at its core, it delivers exactly as promised. It is a clean and simple means to read a phenomenal comic on the iPhone.

That said, there are a couple of things that would really round out the experience. The navigation is too simplistic for a comic this size. If I want to see a page from an earlier issue, then jump to a much later page, the only way to accomplish that is to spend several seconds swiping like a madman to find it, and even that involves trial and error if I don't know the page number. My suggestion would be to make it easier to at least jump to specific issues, which you can build into the existing interface. That second slider is currently pretty much useless, so just change it to issue numbers. Adding a visual (thumbnails?) element to navigation would be nice, but the first suggestion is of vital importance.

My only other gripe is that there's no option to see a full page in its intended composition, or even to zoom. There are other comic apps that implement both features very well, and it's especially nice for fully appreciating the art on a page. Being an owner of the physical version of this collection, I feel the iPhone experience is diminished without this feature. The covers and splash pages are all cropped! Very uncool, especially on a display as lovely as the iPhone's.

There are other comic readers in the app store where I could enjoy the features I've described, with this comic and many others besides, but I figured Dark Horse would go all out with this dedicated app. I feel that this app does what it says on the label, but does not do justice to the source material.

This is a fantastic comic, and to really get the full experience you should buy the book. If that's the reason that this app feels somewhat crippled, then I'm displeased to have been charged five dollars for the chance to find that out. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have been happy to own both the app and the physical book. As it stands, I'll be sticking to the book.

5/5 stars

BUY IT!! 
