PR: Dark Horse Comics - Emily The Strange Returns - In Full Color and In Your Face
EMILY THE STRANGE RETURNS—IN FULL COLOR AND IN YOUR FACE!
October 12, NEW YORK, NY—Emily the Strange creator Rob Reger teams up with cowriter Mariah Huehner (True Blood, Angel) and rising artist Emily Ivie (The Locked Maze, Rotsterarsil) for a brand-new, full-color miniseries titled Emily and the Strangers, featuring limited variant covers by rock-poster legends!
With the help of her trio of troublemaking cats, Emily is determined to make the most rockin’ song the world has ever known and win a legendary haunted guitar . . . but can she do it solo? Only one thing is for sure—what Emily wants, Emily gets . . . sometimes.
Now, Emily and her strange new bandmates are hard at work writing new songs and recording their first album, with big plans for 2013!
An Emily the Strange feature film is currently in development, with Chloë Grace Moretz (Let Me In, Kick-Ass) in the role of Emily.
Fans of Emily are welcome to stop by the Dark Horse Booth #1528 at New York Comic-Con 2012 for a signing with Rob Reger at 5 p.m. on Friday October 12th!
Praise for Emily the Strange:

Emily and the Strangers #1 is on sale January 30, 2013!
