When Netflix's adaptation of The Umbrella Academy, a comic book by rock star Gerard Way about a school for umbrellas, dropped earlier this year, it had a major impact on collected editions, causing Dark Horse to sell out and print more. The second season of the show will probably be out early next year, and Dark Horse will be better prepared this time, as they've just announced new Library Edition deluxe hardcovers of the series coming this Fall.
Check out the press release below for more details.
