A new card game based on The Umbrella Academy has been announced!

Exciting news, Umbrella Academy fans! Gerard Way and illustrator Gabriel Bás beloved comic-book series is being developed into a card game.

As if the series didn’t already take over the world this year with its Netflix adaptation (it was watch by approximately 45 million households in its first four weeks… no big deal), it’s now going to be available in an altogether new format with Studio71 and Dark Horse Comics – launching on Kickstarter in early 2020

We are incredibly excited to partner with Dark Horse Comics, Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá to bring The Umbrella Academy card game to fans next year,” says Dan Weinstein, President and Co-Founder, Studio71. We’ve all been ardent consumers of the comic book series for years and are looking forward to launching the game.

We’re thrilled to be working with Studio71 on a The Umbrella Academy card game,” adds Nick McWhorter, Chief Business Development Officer at Dark Horse Comics. Studio71’s previous success with game design, blockbuster Kickstarter campaigns and strong retail relationships make them an ideal partner for us.”
