Finale (The Umbrella Academy Apocalypse Suite #6)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are a LOT of things that I love about this comic book series. One of those things happens to be the very cool MCR-esque book titles.

This one's called Finale--of course--but it also has the very awesome alternative, Brothers and Sisters I Am an Atomic Bomb. I mean, come on, how could you not love that?

Well, we're finally here. The apocalypse has arrived and it's actually one of their own. So the team gets back together, meet at the orchestra and face their enraged foe in such an unexpected and unique showdown.

I loved how they worked together, yet didn't. A lot of how this played out consisted of each of them doing their own thing and surprising everyone. Even the reader!

It was great to see Sséance in action, too.

Oh, and the last page was super cool. Minimal storytelling in one tiny frame, but the surroundings offered so much more. Like a missing someone, info on the front page of the newspaper, and even the person reading it!

I thought this six-part comic book story about a dysfunctional family of superheroes, who aren't keen on being so super and care even less about being heroes, was AWESOME!

The dark imagery totally appealed to me. The flawed and odd characters kept me glued to the pages. The timeless feel was so very cool. The art style just as cool. And the overall vision was just so unique.

In a world full of superheroes, this one managed to be completely different, stood on its own.

I'll definitely be checking more out, and am really looking forward to the show.
