Inspiration for the art:
While searching for inspiration for this particular piece, Amano was on a veranda rooftop at his home in Japan one evening this last September 2019. There happened to be a beautiful Harvest Moon in the sky, the phase of the moon’s path through the sky where the celestial body was perfectly full. It was in this moment, Amano imagined Spaceboy, and the rest of The Umbrella Academy, bursting out of the blinding moon falling upon their unsuspecting target.
"I would never expect someone like Yoshitaka Amano to do a drawing of The Umbrella Academy, but that's what I love about this comic. The unbelievable surprises." -Gabriel Bá
"I'm honored to have Yoshitaka Amano take on our beloved Umbrella Academy characters in his unique and gorgeous way, as only he can do. It’s a dream come true to have such a legend create in our world." –Gerard Way
