More than a decade after their original release, Gerard Way’s and Gabriel Bá’s first two runs of The Umbrella Academy are getting deluxe reprints later this year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dark Horse Comics plans to release oversized hardcover editions of Apocalypse Suite and Dallas, which will contain never-before-seen material alongside the original comics.
The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite Library Edition includes the short stories “Mon Dieu!” and “But the Past Ain’t Through with You,” in addition to a 50-page sketchbook featuring work by Bá, Way and designer Tony Ong. The Umbrella Academy: Dallas Library Edition includes the short story “Anywhere But Here” and a 36-page sketchbook.
Dark Horse has previously released Library Editions for its other major flagship series, including Hellboy, Black Hammer and Harrow County. Following the success of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy adaptation, it makes sense to re-release the original series in a collectible format. And although The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion doesn’t end until June with the release of issue #7, it’s safe to assume that sometime in the future, the third collection in the series will also get the hardcover treatment.
Apocalypse Suite releases Sept. 11 and Dallas follows Nov. 13. Meanwhile, the Hotel Oblivion trade paperback hits shelves Sept. 17 and Netflix has renewed the TV series for a second season, but a premiere date has yet to be announced.
Check out the covers for both Library Editions below.
