FEBRUARY 28, MILWAUKIE, OR—After a successful Kickstarter campaign raising more than $64,000 to produce an animated Emily and the Strangers music video, Emily creator Rob Reger returns, with cowriter Mariah Huehner (True Blood, Angel) and artist Cat Farris, for a brand-new Emily and the Strangers miniseries full of evil record companies, stray cat struts, science, and music!
Emily—and her new band, the Strangers—won the battle of the bands and received a record contract with Awesomely Awesome Records, but can the girl who just figured out how to get along with her friends manage dealing with a major corporation? And what’s the deal with the legions of stray cats around town?
Emily is not your average thirteen-year-old girl. Princess pink is her worst nightmare . . . She wears the same black dress every day . . . She loves math and science as much as playing music and skateboarding. Her best friends are her four black cats.
After twenty years as the hero for outcasts, Emily the Strange still promotes the ideals of “Be yourself, think for yourself, do it yourself.” Emily is so anticool, she’s cool . . . A subculture of one, and a follower of no one but herself.
There is also an Emily the Strange feature film currently in development at Universal Pictures, with a script written by Melisa Wallack (Mirror Mirror)!
