On a basic level, once could argue that the art book for the television adaptation of Umbrella Academy would be the comics upon which they're based, which are Umbrella Academy books that feature art. Dark Horse Comics disagrees, however, as they're releasing a 200-page, $40 art book called The Making of the Umbrella Academy. The book will feature behind-the-scenes images and other content describing how the comics were adapted into the Netflix series. Check out the press release below for more info. The Making of the Umbrella Academy hits stores in July.
