his name writing the post-apocalyptic series STRANGE GIRL, which will
be collected in its entirety this January as a limited edition slipcase
GIRL is easily one of my most personal works and I’ve long hoped for a
complete collection," Remender said. "Even more important to me is
seeing illustrators Eric Nguyen, Jerome Opeña, Nick Stakal
and Peter Bergting getting their beautiful work collected in such an
edition. STRANGE GIRL was an important book for all of us and I’m happy
to have readers get their first chance to experience the entire story
in one collection."
GIRL begins ten years after the Rapture, when a beautiful occultist and
her pet demon embark on a road trip to the last open gateway to heaven,
in hopes of befriending God and escaping hell on earth. A bare-knuckle,
action-driven series, peppered with social commentary
and dark humor, STRANGE GIRL is a story about the bewildering nature of
religion, what would happen if the dark future predicted by many came
true, and what a good person would endure for not having faith in
advance of it.
STRANGE GIRL LIMITED EDITION SLIPCASE COLLECTION contains all four
volumes of the critically acclaimed series in an exclusive new slipcase
along with a Strange Girl print by legendary illustrator Michael Kaluta, all signed by series creator Rick Remender and limited to 1000 editions.
Patton Oswalt commented, “STRANGE GIRL is exactly that. Strange, plus
she’s a girl. But it’s so much more. Redemption, demons, magic spells,
hopelessness, friendship and belly-shirts. Rick Remender takes a
loving, nostalgic look at the coming apocalypse.”
