A manga based on the work of Orson Scott Card?

That's a surprise. I wonder if this is based on his old works before he started to unnecessary put his political views in his stories?

The review for With The Light's final volume in the fan section just sucker-punched me in the heart.

I'd been meaning to write a review of the overarching series myself at some point, but have had to hold off since I don't own all of it yet, so to read such a wonderfully written piece...
The initial news of Keiko Tobe's death hit me hard in the heart. She truly created and left behind an unparalleled legacy. You could feel her devotion as you read through the incomplete pages, which are like ghostly vestiges of her very spirit.

...that is so inline with my own feelings just made my week. I didn't think I had any more sheds left to shed for Tobe-sensei and her unforgettable manga, but here you have it.

Like Erica P said, there are many people who connected to the Azuma family's journey because of correlations in their own lives. I am no exception, having a dear friend with Autism as well as a beloved older brother with Asberger's. To me, I could feel their presence and their struggles in the pages, so I will be eternally grateful to those who pointed out WTL to me, and especially to Keiko Tobe, whose love, skill and dedication gave the comics world something I feel it needs much, much more of.
