Wierd, twisted, confusing, evil, sick... all that good stuff.
Allan Ecker's original Umlaut House was experimental, both in terms of his artistic development and story direction (it didn't really become a science fiction story until about 70 strips in), but still managed to mix interesting and sympathetic characters with hilarious, laugh-out-loud situations, mostly involving relationship issues and gender confusion and discovery.

Umlaut II is a cleaner, more coherent strip, showing the original characters at a more mature age and focusing on their children, who have their own hilarious, laugh-out-loud situations, mostly involving relationship issues and gender confusion and discovery. There is also a stronger focus on emotional development and story continuity. Allan's artistic skills have improved substantially, although sometimes they don't seem quite equal to the story, and sometimes the change between serious narrative thread and "fluff" is a little too sharp. Nevertheless, this is one of my long-time favorites.
