Before I read this series, I never realised how useful Egrets could be.

Eleanor and the Egret #4

By: John Layman, Sam Kieth
Released: Oct 4, 2017

An entertaining series comes to an end, and it didn't end quite as predictably as I had feared. We are also reminded that free speech belongs to everyone; everyone should be heard, however unpalatable their message may be.
