The Séance Gets His Own Miniseries in “You Look Like Death”

Dark Horse Comics presents the first Umbrella Academy spin-off series: You Look Like Death! Written by series co-creator Gerard Way with Shaun Simon (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, Neverboy), illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard (Everything, The New Deadwardians), lettered by Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion, Fight Club 3),You Look Like Death explores the trials and tribulations of a young Séance as he navigates the world by himself. 


Roughly ten years before the events of Apocalypse Suite, 18-year-old Séance gets himself kicked out of the Umbrella Academy. With his allowance discontinued by Hargreeves, he takes to a place where his ghoulish talents will be appreciated––Hollywood. After a magical high on a vampire-drug-lord’s stash, Klaus needs help, and doesn’t have his siblings there to save him.

 
“The sky is the limit to where we can expand the Umbrella Academy universe. This series will be a surprise to readers, and Ian’s distinct artwork will help with establishing Klaus’ past and building its own personal symbology.” — Gabriel Bá

“For a long time, I had wanted to tell the story of Klaus Hargreeves’ life after the Umbrella Academy disbanded and before the events of Apocalypse Suite. I imagined a pretty wild decade for Klaus– full of ups and downs, seedy places, supernatural excursions, and internal battles within himself. I am thrilled to finally be able to tell this story with my co-writer Shaun Simon, who sees the world of the UA as clearly as I do. Also thrilled to work with such an amazing art and lettering team in I.N.J. Culbard and Nate Piekos”— Gerard Way
