Dallas is a time travel story about trying to kill President Kennedy. At one point the planet is destroyed. There are psychotic time-travelling hitmen and Number 5 is trying to stop a past version of himself.

I keep on digging the art in this book and Way’s approach to time travel (and the inaccuracy of such methods) was pretty sweet. This isn’t the kind of story you can just drop into, so make sure you read The Umbrella Academy Vol. 1: Apocalypse Suite to figure out who these characters are and why you should care first.

I liked this, although it was no where close to as good as the first one. Bá's art continues to be incredible, reminds me of his Casanova work with Fraction.

This is an excellent Umbrella Academy, showing us how the group us the after effects of the first volume, while exploring the relationships between the characters now that they are all adults. There is also a wonderful weaving of the JFK assassination into the story. Characters are well drawn, complex, interesting and both likeable and detestable at the same time.

Much better than I expected. Art and writing were both well done. Reminded me a bit of Hellboy/BPRD type books.

I am excited to getmy hands on this, although I am quite upset that the library does not have the first volume. So I'm going wayout of order in this series. I am a HUGE Gerard Way fan which brings me to read this comic book.
