It might have taken a decade for The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion to come out, but Gerard Way promises fans won’t have to wait that long again.
In his Instagram reveal of the hit comic series latest release, the former My Chemical Romance frontman admits the delay was due to “life stuff” and “other projects”.

The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion— In Stores and Digital Available Now! This one was a long time in the making. Announced way back in 2009, a lot of things happened in between the announcement and the actual release of this, for @gabriel_ba and myself. Lots of life stuff, other projects, emotional growth and experience gained. Over the years, there were some false starts and every time I came back to the project I had to make it new for myself, fine-tuning the themes and characters. I am very happy with the results and hope you enjoy it if you plan on checking it out. Coincidentally, I just started Volume 4, so hopefully it won’t be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how this volume ends on a major cliffhanger.

At your friendly local comic shop, bookstores, Amazon, and digitally at @comixology. Links in bio. #umbrellaacademy #theumbrellaacademy #darkhorsecomics #hoteloblivion #barnesandnobleexclusive
But then he revealed that the next installment is already underway, noting, “It won’t be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how this volume ends on a major cliffhanger.”
The Netflix series by the same name is also readying a second season.
Which are some other graphic novels worth checking out?
