Umbrella Academy

From Umbrella Academy comics to TV Show we’ve got you covered!

Alot happened this week! From CCXP to Press Conferences to new music! Let’s get into it!

Sunday Dec 9th, 2018

We got a new Umbrella Academy poster!

Although they didn’t have any scheduled public events together on this day, Gerard and the cast of Umbrella Academy posed for this picture. We believe they may have been doing press.

At 3pm Brazilian time Gerard did a signing with Gabriel Ba.

And stopped to pose for this pic with a fan after the signing.

Gerard posted about Umbrella Academy being out on Feb 15th (as if we needed to be amped up some more haha)

And his ever amazing little brother posted to let us all know he’s proud!

Monday Dec. 10th, 2018

Umbrella Academy posted this picture on Instagram from Friday.

We also learned that on Friday night there was a taping of a late night talk show called The Noite that aired at 12:45am Tuesday in Brazil.

We knew Gerard was doing interviews on Monday but were shocked when this picture turned up and we were unable to locate a source.

Luckily with the help of our amazing friends at GWayFUN we were able to learn this was from a Press Conference from earlier in the day.

So far the only thing we’ve been able to find from the press conference was this video, but it’s in Portuguese.

And we also got this fun little clip that shows Gerard throwing a donut at the panel on Saturday.

And on a personal note, we posted our recap of CCXP! If you want full details of the con from Friday to Monday just click the link below!

Tuesday Dec. 11th, 2018

The Noite wasted no time getting their video posted of their interview after it had aired.

Also our friends Humbug and Lisa announced their comic, Deathwish, is now available for pre-order and will start shipping on Dec 21st!

Wednesday Dec, 12th, 2018

Gerard updated his instagram story!

Umbrella Academy started releasing a new line of promo posters for the cast of the show!

Gerard had fun with his toys…

But the big news of the day was that Cave Carson has an Interstellar Eye trade paperback was released! Make sure to pick it up the next time you’re out at your local comic book shop!

Thursday Dec. 13th, 2018

We started our day off with the most amazing news! Kristin and Mikey are expecting their second child!

Gerard also got in on the celebration!

Umbrella Academy posted this cool new gif of Hazel and Cha-Cha.

And when they posted it to Instagram, Gerard gave the best reply.

And then, thanks to the pre-order date on the Dasher merch in the G store, we were able to announce first (once it became midnight for one of our staff members, Ally, in Italy) that we were in fact getting the song on Dec. 14th!

A few hours later the ever wonderful Lola came on to confirm this and give us a sneak peak of the lyric video…

…which was followed up with a similar post from Gerard.

Friday Dec. 14th, 2018

As promised at midnight we received the song and the official lyric video (unless you live in the western parts of the US then you got it a little earlier).

After we had all slept, Gerard came around on Instagram to update his Instagram story.

And so did the featured artist on Dasher, Lydia Night!

And Umbrella Academy gave us a new promo photo!

We also held a friendly debate on our twitter asking what everyone thought the lines “She’s got dashes in her stars” means. We got a lot of really thoughtful insightful responses. Totally worth checking out the thread!

We also got a post from Ian Fowles that confirmed he played guitar on Dasher.

And our favorite little brother posted in support of Gerard’s new song!

Saturday Dec. 15th, 2018

And to end the week Gerard updated his instagram story…

…and we found some neat merch at Hot Topic on our Christmas shopping travels.

We hope you all enjoyed this weeks recap and had a lovely week yourselves!

Our adventure started on Friday when Umbrella Academy posted that we could expect a first look at the show to emerge from the panel on Saturday!

And Gerard took the time to pose with a couple fans at the airport when he arrived!

Gerard did a filming of a talk show with the case of Umbrella Academy set to air in Brazil 12/11/18 at 12:45am. We’ll keep you posted if it appears online!

And after the con @UmbrellaAcad posted this picture from Friday.

Saturday was a flurry of activity with 2 signings and a panel, but it started off with Gerard giving us a good morning post from Brazil.

At noon in Brazil bracelets were handed out for Gerard and Gabriel’s 5pm signing.

One of our other correspondents for this show got the chance to meet up with Gabriel Ba at his booth and he told her to keep an eye out on social media because Netflix had another surprise in store!

And sure enough, just as the 3pm signing was about to take place Netflix announced that Gerard and Gabriel had been added to a signing with the cast of Umbrella Academy for 7pm!

Which was great because it meant @raposatriste would also be able to meet Gerard at one of the signings!

There was some confusion as to whether Gerard would be at this singing because initial graphics that came out promoting the signing did not include him or Gabriel, but Gerard made sure to clear that all up when he added the updated graphic to his instagram story!

Just before the 3pm signing, Fabio Moon posted this awesome shot of Gerard and Gabriel Ba together!

The con wasn’t allowing photos to be taken at this signing but our friend was able to snap this picture at a distance of Gerard signing at 3pm with Gabriel Ba!

And Netflix Brasil hooked up with this high quality shot.

And this short video clip surfaced as well.

And this one too..

Meanwhile Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story with a video of Tom Hopper and David Castenada being silly where you can see Gerard and Gabriel in the background!

The next stop for Gerard was the 7pm (Brazil time) signing with the Umbrella Academy cast! Again, no photos were allowed, but we do have this one pic that Jeff King posted.

Once the panel was over and our friend had received her autograph from Gerard(!) we waited anxiously for the Umbrella Academy panel to begin!

Gerard was the first to be brought on stage as the panel began to get underway and our friend was there to capture the moment.

As was @UmbrellaAcad


People were super excited by the surprise of Ellen Page being present for the panel!

The first thing Gerard spoke of was how happy he was to be back in Brazil and his memories of coming to Brazil with MCR.

Here is a video that includes that moment:

A clip from the show was shown highlighting Aidan Gallagher’s role as Number 5.

After the scene (that was set in the donut shop) had ended people came out into the audience to give out donuts.

Fans were thrilled with their sweet treats!

After the donuts there were even more exciting news to come as Gerard admitted he contributed to scoring the show!

Which is great news especially for those of us who went to NC Comicon where he admitted that he was doing a cover of a song for the show also!

And that we could expect a lot of violence in the series.

Then another scene was shown, this time with Vanya.

After the clip a violinist came on stage to play and then Ellen spoke a little about her character.

As the panel was concluding the panelists all posed for this picture with the audience.

Once the panel ended Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story with some new pics from the panel

And here is a short video clip from Netflix. I was unable to locate this from an official source.

After the panel Gerard and the cast did an interview with the con where they entered a glass room and tv’s broadcasted the interview to con goers.

(We agree with Gerard)

After the interview Gerard posed for a couple pics with the cast.

An hour or so after the activity ended the entire internet celebrated with the release of the first trailer for Umbrella Academy!

And because we thought this was cool…check out how @UmbrellaAcad replied to us when we expressed our gratitude for the trailer! We feel like we’re a part of history now.

They also started rolling out some cool gifs we can’t wait to start using!

On Sunday morning we also received this cool new poster (that fans at the Netflix signing were able to get signed! Lucky ducks!)

And Netflix Brasil updated their instagram story to add two new photos of Gerard with the cast! We’re wondering if they met up to do interviews or maybe they all had breakfast together or something before they went off their separate ways to start the day.

They also posted this picture to Twitter:

Gerard had a light day at this con with just a signing at 3pm (Brazil time) and since photos were not allowed we weren’t able to turn up much but Omelete did post this picture:

And a couple fans were able to snag some:

We don’t know the circumstances surrounding this picture but after the signing Gerard did pose for a picture with this fan and she got to talk to him for a quick sec.

And that was con! We’re gonna let Gerard end this post because he says it best! Get ready!!

On Monday a press conference was held with Gerard and the cast.

Gerard attended NYCC on October 6th and there was also an Umbrella Academy Netflix panel on the 5th.


On October 5th we were able to live stream the Umbrella Academy panel with the exception of a trailer that they played of the upcoming show.

According to our correspondent who was at the panel the trailer was:

And it was also announced that the show will air on Netflix starting February 15th, 2019!

On October 6th the day started with a signing by Gerard and Gabriel Ba hosted by Dark Horse Comics. Dark Horse live streamed the signing on their Instagram story, they said they would upload it to their youtube, but unfortunately that doesn’t seem to have happened yet!

Gerard arrived to his panel early and being the kind of amazing guy that he is, he started an impromptu signing.

NYCC requested no photography during the panel so we don’t have any pictures from the panel to show you, however, if you go to the link below from Newsarama they did a great job live blogging the event so you can feel like you were there!

And of course the con wouldn’t have been complete if Gerard and Gabriel hadn’t stopped by the Umbrella Academy photobooth to pose for this epic gif!


Umbrella Academy won’t be airing on Netflix until the later part of this year, but you can go on Netflix now and add it to your list. You can also click a “thumbs up” icon to let Netflix know you like that this is happening!
