Gerard Way! Gabriel Ba! Now a Netflix original series with a second season coming soon! 

In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-three 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 children form a dysfunctional family with bizarre superpowers. 

When Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, the siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again. This deluxe edition hardcover reprints the 2008 limited-edition collection of the complete first series, including the expanded fifty-page sketchbook section. The hardcover book comes in an illustrated slipcase featuring art by Gabriel Ba; also included is a portfolio containing a new unique print from the artist.
