There aren't many thirteen-year-olds with their own line of clothing, a series of best-selling books from Chronicle, and a firm finger on the pulse of all that is cool in the pop-culture underground. Then again, Emily always has been more than a little strange. To most people, journeying to "the dark side" might seem like a bad thing. But to Emily, the dark side is the per ...more

Um, guessing my aunt didn't know what Emily the Strange was about when she gave me that shoulder bag. I never knew if it was an indie thing she thought I'd like or whether it was just because of the name.

It wasn't my kind of thing. The graphics seemed well done, from the little knowledge I have of them, and I enjoyed some of Emily's quips. It's kind of like the Addams Family with less spooky and more references to devil worship, though. So if you like that kind of irreverence, you'll probably re

(Just to let you know, I am going to write the same introduction as I did in my previous Emily the Strange review because... well... that's how I started with her! XD)

Emily the Strange. Man, do we go back. I've been a fan of hers since... well, years! I've always been a fan of the macabre and the grotesque. Anything that's dark and a little spooky. I love it all! I like getting the crap scared out of me so when I discovered Emily a few years back, I was quite glad. I like the weird elements that

First off, I'm hardly the target market for this book-- which I would think would be teens and and young twenty-somethings who are feeling their oats (as my grandmother used to say). Still I found this fairly entertaining. It's totally disrespectful, poking fun at everything from God to Marilyn Manson. Still its hard to get upset as every generation has something like this -- and it's better than "Leather Nun" and Mr. Natural.

I laughed out loud at points, but was sort of expecting a
the first part was a little too blasphemous for me but i enjoyed the rest of it. not as good as the second, but better than the first. will put 9th grade and up on them all. not sure if a lot of my students will get some of the references though.
I wanted to like it, it is very goth-there is even a nice Manson character. I like the dark art and Emily's image is very appealing. There is just something...over the top about it that makes it stupid.
Major girl crush since I was so little. The book is so dark in a very cute way, you can always go back and read it for a good laugh.

did have Marilyn Manson and mention of butt plugs but not enough for me to give it more than one star.
I thought I would try again, but no. Still didn't gell. Mildly interesting, though.
It's dark. It's funny. It's cute. It's Emily.

Reger's friend Nathan Carrico designed Emily in 1991 for a skateboard company in Santa Cruz, where Cosmic Debris was born. In his Santa Cruz garage (and later an artist warehouse in San Francisco) Reger created the designs, and with Matt Reed brought them into the fashion world by creating t-shirt designs that captured the essence of this mysterious young girl with 4 black cats. Since then, Cosmic ...more
