These are the tales of one particular set of anthropomorphic personifications of mathematical relations. Where the graphs double as the character hairstyles. (Don’t worry, the art quality gradually improves over time.) Expect pop culture references and LOTS of puns and wordplay. There are series’ where the parabola gets kidnapped away from the polynomials (because isn’t Para a conic?), where . . .

He’s come in on the middle of a “drop” and figures he can squeeze somebody for some cash. Unfortunately, he already has people after him and this little package just adds to his troubles.
