The chaos into which the members of the Umbrella Academy have been thrown in an effort to -- what else? -- save the world, becomes even more disordered! In the conclusion to the series' second arc, one of the team commits a bizarre murder, and the brothers and sisters reach their boiling points. Family tensions were high between the siblings when they were a united force, but now they've begun to turn on one another . . .

Winner of the 2008 Eisner Award for Best Limited Series, and the 2008 Harvey Award for Best New Series, for the first arc of The Umbrella Academy, "Apocalypse Suite", "Dallas" continues the excellence teaming G more

    The Bad: While many of us in comics are used to the kind of schizophrenic narratives that characterize usual continuity, Umbrella Academy's continuity is a kind of patchwork quilt with pieces missing all over, thanks to the delightful use of time travel. It's a book for people of a particular mindset and sense of humor. My advice? Go check out the first collection, The Apocalypse Suite, and see if that appeals to you. If it does, you're in luck. If not, you'll probably be unable to stand the book. Also, if you're unable to get over the stigma of sharing comic book tastes with scores of teenage girls (due in great part to Gerard Way's day job and ensuing fan base), you may want to steer clear of Umbrella Academy entirely.

    In many ways, "The Umbrella Academy: Dallas" really isn't a second mini-series, it's issues #7-12 of "The Umbrella Academy" as an ongoing series. This is some seriously top-notch and strange stuff, but it has such heart and punch to each story that I can't even imagine people not liking this comic. A recent interview with Way said that it'll be a little while until the next "The Umbrella Academy" story"due to his band My Chemical Romance recording its new album"but if that means I just have to re-read the twelve issues that are out until then, I'm ok with that. Seriously fun. Read Full Review
