    Dark Horse's TALES FROM THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY: YOU LOOK LIKE DEATH #2 is charming and odd. Way, Simon, Culbard, and Piekos blend quirky scenarios and strange characters with little moments of realism. Read Full Review

    Just like the first issue, any excuse to return to the world of the Umbrella Academy is a great one, and the fact that this issue focuses on one of the breakout stars of the academy is excellent. The background story involving Vampire Gorilla's feels very much in line with the absolutely bonkers stories that the Umbrella Academy is notorious for, and it feels like things are shaping up to be another unforgettable excursion to the world of the Academy. The art is fantastic and a real highlight of the comic. Read Full Review

    You Look Like Death is living up to the hype of being Umbrella Academys first spin off title. Empathy for Klaus continues to strengthen as the series goes on and there is more than enough here to hook readers just like Klaus himself is getting hooked on something much worse. Read Full Review
