    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Jan 20, 2014

    Three issues in and UMBRAL continues to be a fantastic read that seems to be more grand and interesting with each passing issue. With some great writing and art, it's no wonder that this issue is such a hit. You'd be a fool to pass this one up, so head to your local comic shop and pick up your copy before the Umbral devour it.

    Three issues in, "Umbral" remains intriguing, with a fresh modern voice paired with high-fantasy in a way that feels relatable and cool. Rascal is a fantastic protagonist and the fact that she zigs when you think she's going to zag, even just in dialogue, is incredibly refreshing and fun. Read Full Review
