Overview

The team is despondent following the near apocalypse created by one of their own and the death of their beloved mentor Pogo. So it's a great time for another catastrophic event to rouse the team into action. Trouble is—each member of the team is distracted by some very real problems of their own. The White Violin is bedridden due to an unfortunate blow to the head. Rumor has lost her voice—the source of her power. Spaceboy has eaten himself into a near-catatonic state, while Number Five dives into some shady dealings at the dog track and the Kraken starts looking at his littlest brother as the key to unraveling a mysterious series of massacres…all leading to a blood-drenched face-off with maniacal assassins, and a plot to kill JFK!

Loved the second installment in the Umbrella Academy series, the plotline is great, the characters are well...charasmatic, and the illustrations are exquisite!

I really loved this Umbrella Academy: Dallas. The artwork, once again, is stunning. I would even say it's better than the first. The plot is fun, like before, with all its twists and turns. and even when you think it's over, another thing just pops up. Overall it was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new comic series that features a creative plot and a beautiful and fresh drawing style.

Okay well i am a big fan of Gerard Way. I love his music so when i found out he wrote a comic book i just had to get it. I got The Umbrella Academy volume one: Apocalypse Suite and absolutly loved it, so I decided to get Dallas. When i started reading Dallas i just couldn't stop. I'm thirteen and I don't know a whole lot about comic books but I know when I read a good one. I can't belive that The Umbrella Academy is going to be a movie soon and i can't wait to read Hotel Oblivian! If you're a comic book fan then you should totally get this because you know it's a great comic book when Grant Morrison likes it.

The Umbrella Academy: Dallas  Story by Gerard Way  Art by Gabriel Ba  Volume 02 Dallas  Cover Art by Tony Ong  Trade Paperback  192 pages  Publisher: Dark Horse Comics; First Edition  Publication Date: September 16, 2009  ISBN-13: 978-1595823458      The Umbrella Academy: Dallas is a follow-up to Apocalypse Suite and is every bit as good as the introductory story. The compelling evil-doers in Dallas are Hazel and Cha-Cha two psychotic, time-travelling serial killers in oversized cartoon masks who capture The Séance and kill him in an attempt to convince Number Five to return to 1963 to finish The Kennedy Assassination. The young and old Number Five (paradox be damned) meet in the Dallas Book Depository where everything ends (although convoluted) as it should.      Plot devices include Viet Cong Vampires, a time machine disguised as an ambulance, death and resurrection, a quick thinking waitress, dismemberment, and God as the Marlboro Man. Oh, and the world ends in nuclear detonation… But that’s another story.            As I mentioned, the Umbrella Academy is a strange and beautiful graphic novel so entertaining you’ll beg for more. 5 out of 5 stars      File with: Graphic novels, unique powers and characters, My Chemical Romance, Grant Morrison, Doom Patrol, Pat McEwon, Zombieworld: Champion of the Worm, Edvin Biukovic, Grendel Tales, superheroes, aliens, science fiction, the apocalypse, time travel, and comics.

This comic completely blew me away. I fell in love with all the cuaracters and actually felt the emotions of each one. Darker than the previous UA comic, it takes you on many twists and turns and delves you deeper into the life of the children, especially #5. I personally love the comic, and when Gerard paired it with his interest in the Kennedy Assasination, I was completely hooked. Gerard and Gabriel do a brilliant job together, and whether you like MCR or Gerard or not, you need to check out this comic. It's very easily my favorite, and the story paired with the fantastic artwork is great. They even include notes and some of Gerard's planning and sketches at the end for those that are interested. Highly recommended.

This comic is totally awesome if you like weird every page. If you haven't read the first volume you will be lost.

I loved 'The Umbrella Academy: The Apocalypse Suite' but didn't think this one was as good. 'The Umbrella Academy: Dallas' is quirky with a lot of clever ideas and interesting characters but it sometimes feels a little unfocused and by the end, a little unsatisfying. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy it, but it wasn't as good as the first volume. Gabriel Ba's artwork is absolutely wonderful, though, and I still think the book is worth a look.
