Comic Review: Emily and the Strangers: Breaking the Record #1

emily

The art style of Emily and the Strangers is bright and vibrant, which fits the tone of the comic perfectly. The comic is a spin-off of Emily the Strange and focuses on her band. This is the first in a three-part mini-series. Of the six main characters, four of them are girls, and one is even a ROBOT girl! There’s also a set of twins who are people of color. I really appreciate the diversity of this comic. Issue #1 sets the stage nicely for both a sinister record company scheme and a puzzling number of stray cats, which may or may not be related. This is a great comic for all ages, and I’m looking forward to the next two issues!

Score: A

Plot

“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?”
