In The Umbrella Academy: Dallas #2, Spaceboy watches reality TV and Number Five lies low in a seedy motel. Meanwhile, a threat against the Umbrella Academy begins to rouse the team, who've been rather uninspired since the catastrophic events in 2007's best-selling Apocalypse Suite.
Only one member of the team understands the danger that lies ahead; the massacre in Costello's Diner has raised some suspicions of what's happened, and what's to come. At the heart of this, the Umbrella Academy feels the loss of Pogo, the chimp that had held them together since childhood, and resorts to remedies that won't help, and, sadly, won't cure boredom.
