Review: Emily and the Strangers
Win a haunted guitar!
The prize is too good to pass on, especially if the only requirement is performing in a battle of the bands. Although Emily prefers the company of cats, she isn't shy and enjoys spending time with others, as long as she can have creative control. But joining a band means letting go and learning how creativity can go even higher when you find others to contribute to the inspiration.
The illustrations were beautifully done. I had yet to see a graphic book displayed with so many layers. It made Emily look like a badass rockstar. Not having read any other Emily Strange books, I found the beginning strangely peculiar as she rattled on about time machines and odd ideas, but once the radio announced the band search everything fell into focus.
Looking forward to many more Emily comics.
