The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite - Gerard Way

I've been seeing/hearing about this comic for some time and finally broke down and got the first trade. I love the art of Gabriel Ba (basically Mike Mignola) and found the story and characters intriguing. It revolves around a group of super-powered beings and oscillates between past and present. The group fights unusual villains and attempts to deal with unresolved issues from a loveless childhood. A good balance between action and characterization, but there are a great deal of players, which cuts into Way's ability to truly delve into any one of them.
