Okay, so am I the only one who likes American comics? (Or any ethnic comic really...)
The reason I ask is because... 1) I can think of no better name to describe them then comics and it bothers me. 2) I just found a comic by Gerard Wade or however you spell his name from My Chemical Romance, and it gave me inspiration for a roleplay. 3) I want to know if those people living near me know of any place that sells American comics, or any comics in general, where I can find all 6 of The Umbrella Academy, or of a place on the internet.
I may possibly start this, if no one wishes to beat me to it, within the next month. The possibly means I'm lazy.
Plot In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born by women who'd previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, "To save the world."
These seven children form The Umbrella Academy, a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers. Their first adventure at the age of ten pits them against an erratic and deadly Eiffel Tower, piloted by the fearsome zombie-robot Gustave Eiffel. Nearly a decade later, the team disbands, but when Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, these disgruntled siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again.
