Title: Emily and The Strangers
Author: Rob Reger, Mariah Huehner & Emily Ivie
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: May 27th 2014
I've read comics from 'Emily The Strange' a few years back and I must say that I absolutely loved them. This comic on the other hand was different from what I've read since it gave Emily a test... work with others.
It was really funny to see her try to work with other people and not be in control all the time.
As I have said before I read some of the 'old' Emily The Strange comics and I noticed that the art in this comic was a bit different from the previous ones. It had a softer feel to it and it looks amazing.
As most comics do, 'Emily and The Strangers' has a pretty objective plot. Emily must learn how to work with other people in order to win a band show, and that's exactly what happens. It does not have any weird twists on it nor any dramatic moments. But then again, this is a comic and it's directed to kids/young adults.
This comic provides a positive message to kids or anyone really. You can be strange and not be afraid to show it and you also must accept others in their own way. Give them a chance and you may be surprised with the results.
Funny and beautiful I think I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good comic.
