"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!" -- from publisher's web site.… (mer)

Onwards and weirdwards!

When we last saw the Umbrella Academy, we were just getting to know all of the siblings for better or for worse and following them through saving the word one time.

This time around? We really get into time travel. If you're going to go all in on the craziness... well then let's go a few levels even more complicated!

Through that lens, we get even more about how disfunctional all of these people are.

There is the one who is an old man stuck in the body of a child:



The one who's weird and paranoid:



The one who dies... and gets over it:



And the one that can't talk:



(I hadn't caught that's why she was called Rumor before...)

And that doesn't even mention the violin one (she's paralyzed back in the first issues) or the giant space ape. Man these stories are weird and wonderful.

Speaking of, I think the thing I love the most are the crazy overblow 'comic booky' scenes:



And backstory:



In the end, it's wonderfully mad. And they realize that.



If you can't tell, I enjoyed this story. :D

Improves on the first book and lays some interesting seeds for when the series (hopefully) continues. ( )

Interesting, and every bit as scatter brained as the first volume. But, once again, I think the show did a better job of telling the events. Hazel and Cha-Cha are both shown to be super bad ass, but then again, taken out right away.

Elements from the show that were more interesting was how they spent time in Dallas. That's not in the comics at all. Other than Diego, Luther, and Klaus being in Vietnam for a bit. So there is bits and pieces from this book that's in season 1 of Umbrella Academy, and the backbone of this makes up Season 2 of Umbrella Academy. So it is interesting to see the tidbits and the snippets from the comics show up on the show, in different ways and places.

But ultimately, I think the show just does it better. It fleshes things out more. Makes things more interesting, understandable, and gives more meaning and greater levity to the events that happen. The super brisk pace of these comics is kind of a hindrance, especially when the comics is trying to tell something complex and deep, but sadly with the brisk pace, it just seems scatter brained and all over the place and the plot feels jumbled and rushed at the same time.

I finished Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy and decided to read this volume of the graphic novels. It was interesting in its own right. The main characters from the series are there, well, mostly. And the goal is the same, mostly. But so much of the background differs. The graphic novel is good, but quite different in many ways.

Do take the time to enjoy the art. There are interesting tidbits scattered throughout the book.

Again, I'd recommend this for fans of the series with the usual caveats of "the book differs from the film." People who like groups of dysfunctional superheroes might also try it. JFK conspiracy theorists could have a field day. ( )
