This has the potential to be a downright fascinating series when all is said and done. - Optical Sloth

The way [Umber] draws her parents as having blank eyes behind their eyeglasses is almost as perfect as the way she draws herself: a crazy-haired curmudgeon with either a glint of mischief or a permanent scowl on her face. - Rob Clough
