Umbrella Academy 6 & Iron Fist one shot 1

UA Writer: Gerard Way, Artist: Gabriel Ba, Colors:Dave Stewart

I was amused to see the same device, used to great effect, in 2 comics this week. Iron Fist uses a map of the travel route that airplane has taken as the background. This looks like it was taken right out of a 40’s movie except it is in color of course. It really fits the mood.

Umbrella Academy gives Ba the difficult task of depicting Igor Stravinsky conducting his raucous Rite of Spring. It is very effective having the score as the background. And look at those native dancers! What a show.
