Has it really been five years since the publication of the second Umbrella Academy miniseries? That’s … too long. On Twitter this week, writer Gerard Way gave an update on the project, saying that he and artist Gabriel Ba have started to talk about the third and fourth volumes.

“So I got a really nice email from Gabriel Ba the other day, he’s an amazing comic artist who was the artist on Umbrella Academy,” Way tweeted. “He was checking in to see how I was and that he was going to be finished with a project sometime next year, and we both agreed to Do part 3 and 4 of Umbrella Academy, starting next year..I am almost finished with my music project and so it’s time to get back into comics.”

Way also posted a couple of his concept sketches, “Gas Panic” and an unlabeled team shot, seen below.

OH GOD THANK YOU FRIENDS, THANK YOU FOR NOT LEAVING ME HANGING

Awesome news. Hopefully that other project Ba is working on is Casanova.

YES! Killjoys was great, but Umbrella Academy is what I’m really waiting for!

And its great that Gerard always gets artists of Gabriel Ba and Becky Cloonan’s caliber. He couldn’t hope for better artists. Although clearly he’s a great artist in his own regard. :)

Pretty damn happy about this, the last update he gave sounded like it was a long time away or possible never.
