Recommended to Barbi Faye (The Book Fae) by: Emily the Strange
This issue had a lot of rock and roll references, trippy artwork, several different stories. I loved all of the different pop culture references and illustrations; I am a big fan of Emily to begin with. I wish she was still relevant today... her merch was so cute. I love her attitude and her four kitties!!!

Il n'est plus vraiment utile de présenter Emily the Strange, l'icône des lolita goth.

Le premier tome à être édité en France était franchement sympathique, l'univers sombre, cynique mais drôle de la petite était parfaitement bien représenté.

Ce tome signe presque son arrêt de mort... Je me suis ennuyée à mourir (contrairement au premier tome intitulé "Morte d'Ennui"... Strange, isn't it ?). Les dessins sont parfois grossiers et désagréables, certains scénarios n'ont même parfois ni queues ni têtes

I'm not a Emily Strange fan. She's boring.

I don't think these are for me, though I gave them a fair shot. Too weird, too dark. I read these after reading the first Emily the Strange novel and thinking it was really cute and fun.

Wow! This graphic novel was so BUSY, and so dark with its red and black tones, that I just couldn't get into it. Didn't finish it.

Quizás la puntuación no es del todo justa. Fue el resultado de un calentón online sin saber realmente que estaba comprando de ahí mi pequeña decepción... tengo dos más de la serie, espero que mejore.
