    yep and i'm done!!! forever!!! I hoped this one would have more info on where S2 of the show might go? But it actually had more of the plot they put in S1 so that at least made sense. And ok I realise it's unfair to compare the two mediums because, for starters, they're different authors and storylines. but this just is so not the style of comic I want to read. plus it uses gore and violence for comedy. I like dark things, and I like them to be treated with the weight that they deserve. Not like yep and i'm done!!! forever!!! I hoped this one would have more info on where S2 of the show might go?

    In this, the second Umbrella Academy collection, Spaceman has eaten himself into obesity, Kraken has gotten a bit more obsessive, White Violin is in the hospital and paralzyed since the previous volume, and Number Five, after some shenanigans at the dog track, goes back in time to prevent himself from preventing the Kennedy assassination... The Umbrella Academy is a fun read, like Tim Burton doing the X-Men. Where else would you see a character travelling back in time to prevent his older self fr In this, the second Umbrella Academy collection, Spaceman has eaten himself into obesity, Kraken has gotten a bit more obsessive, White Violin is in the hospital and paralzyed since the previous volume, and Number Five, after some shenanigans at the dog track, goes back in time to prevent himself from preventing the Kennedy assassination... The Umbrella Academy is a fun read, like Tim Burton doing the X-Men. Where else would you see a character travelling back in time to prevent his older self from protecting Kennedy? There are laughs but also thought provoking moments. The Umbrella Academy is a slightly more sophisticated rendition of the X-Men. Picture the X-Men being three times as dysfunctional and wearing domino masks and British schoolboy outfits and there you go. I recommend The Umbrella Academy: Dallas to fans of the X-Men, X-Files, and things that don't begin with the letter X, such as Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol run.

    First of all, The Umbrella Academy series on Netflix really surprised me. I wasn't expecting it to be anything amazing but I ended up finishing the whole show in a day. It wasn't perfect but I've been looking for a dysfunctional family of adopted superheroes/anti-heroes recently and this is as close as it gets to that. Anyway, this second volume was pretty great and I'm looking forward to the next season of the show.

    It pains me to continue to rate this series so low, but I just feel like he took SO MANY cliches and tropes and mashed them all together and it really doesn't work, both in terms of making sense plot-wise and in making me care about any of the characters beyond their stereotypical archetype. *sighs* I'm hoping Killjoys will be better when I get to that ...

    I read the 1st volume a while back and I thought it was good, but confusing and not great. I then saw the new show on Netflix recently and it made sense of that 1st story. Some content from this book was also put into the Netflix series. Anyway, all this to say, I thought this volume was much better and it made more sense.

The Netflix series is even better than these books. It's a case where the show is better than the book. I do wonder if the 2nd series will deal more with the volume or put new content up. Something wild blowing my mind, the writer, Gerard Way was the lead vocalist for 'my Chemical Romance'. Like no way. That is some talent to be in 2 mediums. I'm impressed. The Kennedy assassination is the key of this book. Number 5 was sent to kill him and instead he is protecting him from being hurt. So now, a kid version of Number 5 from the past is sent to defeat his older self and finish the job he was paid to do. Number 5 is a hit man. The rest of the academy is sent to stop the young Number 5 and protect the president. I have to say, I like the gayer Klaus in the show than in the comics. He's not as flamboyant. It's too bad. Klaus was a crazy ball mess, but plenty fun. I keep trying to review the story and jump to the show. Ok, this is a great graphic novel and it's better and more coherent than the 1st volume. Read this to be ready for the next season of the show. I will now search out volume 3 to read ASAP.

    I like how Way weaves all these plot threads that seem to have nothing to do with one another into a cohesive story by the end of the arc. It feels like a Vertigo book with ADD. I do have to wonder when Way is going to let something nice happen to the cast. Just when you think how could this get any worse for this family, Way drives them even deeper to despair. But I guess that's also part of the series' subversive charm because this book is still a lot of bat-shit crazy, over the top fun.

But they won't have much of a choice shaking off their funk when their mysterious brother Number Five is being pursued by a couple of masked psychopaths and must save them by going back in time to commit the most notorious assassination in history... Sure, that sounds like way too much stuff going on at the same time, but I admit that to my surprise, Way actually pulls off this rather ambitious and convoluted story. The pacing works really well, the story hangs together perfectly and the members of the Umbrella Academy finally get enough backstory for their actions to make sense. I think I still prefer the Netflix series, but I must say, I hope they use this story line in season 2! A fun, violent and often hilarious story of time-travel and emo superheros.

    I tend to get interested in the plots for this series but the writing doesn’t do a ton for me. There’s something about the characterizations that just isn’t clicking for me. Which is fine, I can sort of turn my brain off and read for the plot but it keeps me from getting connected the way I do to the characters in the Netflix series. Anyway, season one of the show appears to be a mix of volumes 1 and 2.

    The Umbrella Academy siblings are back but in very bad shape after the earth’s near annihilation by one of their own and the death of their beloved Pogo. When another threat looms to change the world, No. 5, Kraken aka Diego, Rumor aka Allison, Seance aka Klaus, and Space aka Luthor converge in Dallas in 1963. The pace continues but at time the gore was too much.

    Really wanted to enjoy this series but none of the characters seem more than 2D cut outs. The plot is as nonsensical and messy as always, feeling like a bad acid trip of sorts. This is where I part with this series.

    “We each play the part written for us. You can’t fight the future.” To say that I had no idea about what this volume was gonna be about is a huge understatement. Sure, I half thought it would have something of the TV show in there that I would recognize -in which I wasn't wrong - but, overall, I had no idea what the plot could be. I was very pleasantly surprised in what I ended up finding. With its signature craziness and goriness, Volume 2 of The Umbrella Academy did more than I could “We each play the part written for us.

I was very pleasantly surprised in what I ended up finding. With its signature craziness and goriness, Volume 2 of The Umbrella Academy did more than I could ever dream off... mostly because I don't think I'm that crazy. “It simply must be done.” We finally got Hazel and Cha-Cha and how did I enjoy them! Those surprisingly creepy masks and their own particular brand of weirdness and disregard for human life make them weirdly adorable to me. Their particular relationship is somehow cute and disturbing. Which are two words that can describe them perfectly at any given time. We also have more of Five's past and that... that was a completely different can of worms. The only thing I'll say about that is I'm somehow baffled that he is crazy. “You can stand here and have a pity party… or you can unpack your things and be a ‘part’ of this family, start ‘rebuilding.’” Of course, we also have the Hargreeves's and their particular brand of craziness and weirdness. The kind of things they get themselves involved with is so over the top but makes so much sense when put into this world. Diego and Klaus are two of my favorites and do I have questions about Klaus. I need some answers here people. I wish we had gotten more of Vanya but it also makes perfect sense that she wasn't all that present. Hopefully, she will be in the next volume. “Oh, C’mon – a normal life isn’t an option for any of us. I can say I stayed here to help, but let’s be honest – this is the only place… crazy enough for me to do my thing. I’m an animal.” At the end of the day The Umbrella Academy is such and over the top, crazy, slightly ridiculous, and fun world that is addictive. The second volume kept the same feeling and ambiance of the first one and, at the end of the day, it delivered what I was expecting of it. The fact that the ending of the volume was with a song, like in a TV show, was hilarious and I absolutely loved it. “Because the world, my friend, is big enough. Without you.” __________________ Oh goody, how many surprises. I just love Hazel and Cha-Cha. Give me a comic of just them and I will devour it in a second. RTC. __________________ I wanted to wait till next season of the show was out before reading this volume mostly because I didn't want to spoil myself about what the next season could be about and yet, here we are. My main reason for going back to reading this is because I hate the idea of finishing the year without having read all that is available of this series, since I did started it this year. So, that's exactly what I'm gonna do. I'm not sure of what I want to happen in this volume. I kind of have zero expectations, which is usually good, and I just want to see what I get.

I didn't expect a crazy time travel adventure with this and man the place we went and the world pieces that were created, fantastic. Story: The story was unexpected. I had expected more family drama and I even more looks at the past but I didn't expect the looping time travel. This was ballsy and executed so well. It's paced wonderfully and the internal logic was really stretched. At the core this is still a family drama book and this is amazing. The characters get a big dose of development and add that with history you have a beautiful brew of awesome. Sure we've had books dealing with Kennedy before but this book is so ingrained into the characters and their choices that it makes it so much more. I can't wait to see where this family goes. Characters: The entire family is great, each gets their moments. I don't know how to talk about it without spoiling these characters. They are flawed, real and deep with distinct character voices. There are tropes that Way uses but they serve the story so well and when they clash together it's fantastic. This series is awesome. Onward to the next book!

    This was soooo much better than the first volume! It's bonkers and has a fair share of bloody scenes, an absurd sense of humour and it's just a better story. Even when Number Five is the main player, I feel like all the characters were developed here and the Séance is by far my favorite. There were cool ideas before, a few brushes of eccentricity and irreverence in Apocalypse Suite, but the pay off of that first arc is found here, with an established cast of characters and a whacky world.

Plus, Hazel and Cha Cha were so much fun to read, the design alone adds to the punkish/cartoonish art style. I also really enjoyed the little story at the end with the Kraken and Vanya. The Dallas' arc doesn't really have a place for her, and the Kraken has a minor role too. So, having a few pages giving some backstory to the two characters who actually felt like siblings was a nice touch closing up this volume.

    This story line was quite interesting. There were a few random panels that didn’t make sense to me, but I’m seriously loving this story. Oh and I find Hazel and Cha Cha more enjoyable than I probably should. I’m not prepared to wait until August for volume 3.

It still has the consistently wonderful art of Gabriel Ba but it lost a lot of what made Apocalypse Suite appealing to me. Even for fans of the first volume, I'm not entirely sure I'd recommend Dallas. The fun quirkiness of Apocalypse Suite is replaced by time travel loops, characters being terrible to each other and even more violence. I didn't hate it but it was a bit of a letdown.

    Dallas is a slightly more conventional tale than Apocalypse Suite, and hard to reconcile as a standalone book when it has such a massively mind-blowing ancestor to live up to. Visually it's still got the talents of Gabriel Bá gracing our eyes with his beautiful weirdness - but this time around, the panels seem less complex, more focused on the single idea, with fewer secondary mind-ticklers that I recall from the previous book's storytelling genius. Almost nowhere is there some delightful detail Dallas is a slightly more conventional tale than Apocalypse Suite, and hard to reconcile as a standalone book when it has such a massively mind-blowing ancestor to live up to. Visually it's still got the talents of Gabriel Bá gracing our eyes with his beautiful weirdness - but this time around, the panels seem less complex, more focused on the single idea, with fewer secondary mind-ticklers that I recall from the previous book's storytelling genius. Almost nowhere is there some delightful detail buried in the background that illuminates the underlying story. It makes this book feel more...conventionally comics. The story itself isn't quite as dense either, but is still pretty out there - time travel, impersonation, insanity, revelations that surprise our 'heroes' - but a little less self-reflection or intricate plotting that would come from the years-long gestation period that birthed the previous. OTOH, there was a depth of melancholy and dread throughout this book that isn't easy for most creative teams to convey. About halfway through, the fun picks up - when the flapping plot threads start to come together and we the reader feel like we're starting to get control over the story and understand where it could be headed - even if we're hopeful they don't leave us with a conventional plot (unlikely). The aspect of the book I found most unsettling was the tragedies that seem to follow the Academy kids - like everyone wasn't shit upon enough in the last book, this just had to get darker for some reason I can't explain. If as Way suggests in his afterword, this is meant to be a long ongoing, I sincerely hope the family doesn't keep getting beat down like this - after these two books I don't know how much could be left of them. OTOH, I suppose it's true that without any changes to the status quo, this would feel entirely like the "trapped in [email protected] nature of most mainstream ongoings, where no matter what happens the heroes always seem to get sucked back to their core status in life, like some great anti-creative, risk-averse gravity well of comics.

    The world is in peril once again, and only the Umbrella Academy can stop it. But they're either scattered to the winds, licking their wounds from their previous adventure, or...they just don't feel like it. We're doomed. The follow-up to a hit mini-series must have so much pressure associated with it, I can't even imagine. After the superb Apocalypse Suite, Dallas has a lot to live up to, while furthering the story and replicating what made the original so good.

After the superb Apocalypse Suite, Dallas has a lot to live up to, while furthering the story and replicating what made the original so good. Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba do just that, but not in the way you'd expect. The first book was about the family, and what held them together. This second one is about what makes them all different. Number Five takes centre stage for the most part, with some characters like Vanya only really appearing at the beginning and end, but that doesn't mean they don't get something to do. We learn a lot about what makes them tick, even in the most subtle ways. Kraken doesn't get much focus, but after these six issues you'll have a much clearer picture of how he works - same with Seance. Once again, the superhero plot is almost secondary - in fact, there are some developments around issue 4 that don't even make any sense until the revelations of the finale issue which tie everything up into a clever bow that you'll never see coming. It's some masterful storytelling that allows our heroes to both win and lose all at the same time. Umbrella Academy's a strange beast. It's nothing like anything else, and it seems to do it without even trying. More, please.

    A masterpiece in the modern age of comic books. This second volume of The Umbrella Academy is the same as good as the first one and maybe even better. Here, the lives of the member of the Umbrella Academy continues and while both volumes show development on all members, certainly in the first volume the main character is The White Violin, in here, the second volume, it's Number Five.

    I honestly didn't expect much out of Umbrella Academy, not because I had something against Gerard Way personally, but because I don't generally expect any musician to be able to skip format entirely and write a good comic. Way did it. This second volume of Umbrella Academy is, like the first, imaginative and filled with memorable characters. The dysfunctional "family" is the heart of the book, and the interactions between the characters is what gives the weirdness a base.

    I read the first volume and then headed straight for the TV show that just got featured on Netflix. I thought of how amazing the TV adaptation was, how they really gave new depth to the series and more space for you to breathe in the relationship between the characters. Little did I know that the show actually features a unification of the first and second volume of The Umbrella Academy, enriching the narration and weaving the story into a single more complex plot.
