Hi Chris,

I received your book!

I was positively surprised when I saw the book: No orcs, dragons or superheroes, but a comic in the line of my favorite comics (When the Wind Blows, Persepolis, The Arrival..) Your metaphor of a tunnel is well found, while not mentioned in the book, the atmosphere of a grey, concrete tunnel, no overview and inert-ness (is that English?..) shows very well the mood and situation of the girl. Also the fact that the comic is “silent” is very well chosen: Lonely people don’t talk that much. The style of drawing is also perfect: Harsh, but friendly where needed.

In short: I like it very much!

Best regards,
