And so this series comes to an end, and I realize that I don't care about any of these people and the narrative has given me no reason to do so. And then it gets worse in later volumes.

Yes, I've read them.

I read the second volume first, then went back to read the first volume to see whether it improved without the maudlin Kennedy nostalgia of the second. I found that it hadn't measurably.

The series is crap. The writing is crap. The art is crap.

You do realize the mini ended with Kennedy assassinated and the only noticeable change is that the world didn't explode.

I more or less ignored these posts until today, when I was bored and thought "Ehhh, what can it hurt, let's take a look?"

Holy crap.

As in "This is the craziest shit I've read in years".

But at the same time I'm intrigued. :)

And thus the entire female cast was inflicted with permanently disabling injuries and depowered. Bleahhhhhhh.

Thanks for taking the time to post all of these! I really enjoyed Umbrella Academy when it came out and it was nice to see all of these scans again -- don't let all of the negative comments discourage you from posting more.

I'll have to dig these up from the longboxes. I don't remember the Dallas arc at all, but I'm pretty sure I read and enjoyed it. I'm eager to see the Netflix series. Unlike some folks, I enjoyed this series for the Gonzo nature of it. I guess I'm surprised how some folks seem to hate it, rather than just not enjoy it, but tastes vary.

I quite liked the Apocalypse Suite, though I never got around to reading Dallas. The deliberate gaps in Umbrella Academy can be a bit frustrating at times, especially given that it's far from being an ongoing series, but I do like it overall. I just wish there were more of it. I expect the Netflix show will scratch that itch and fill in some of the gaps.

The third volume Hotel Oblivion is currently hitting stores now, isn't it?

Correct, it's about halfway through at this point. I haven't been following it because I'm not doing single issues anymore, but I'm kind of surprised how little I've heard about it, especially given the Netflix show coming up in a matter of weeks.
