    Now while this is still strange, there are some commentaries here that are thoughtful and funny. Could be the change in writers. While this lead writer was part of the first one, they are lead here not secondary or third as in the first book. My favorite in this little collection of stories/commentaries is the "Lostco". A coupon that is void if you cut it out, not good until 2042 and only on even numbered Tuesdays on months that start with H. I loved that! The Hobo camps were a nice touch as wel Now while this is still strange, there are some commentaries here that are thoughtful and funny. Could be the change in writers.

A coupon that is void if you cut it out, not good until 2042 and only on even numbered Tuesdays on months that start with H. I loved that! The Hobo camps were a nice touch as well inside the Lostco.Oh and when you try a sample product it mysteriously ends up IN your cart. The lost in inner space was funny too with the references to old 8 bit Nintendo games. Ooooh and the Troublican Convention...as the sign warns: Disclaimer: Emily the strange has special powers that you do not have! Do not chop off legs with your home guillotine! I loved that she incinerated the Troublicans in the end = )

    I was expecting a lot more from Emily the Strange. After all, I see her products everywhere that Jack Skellington also frequents so you'd think she'd have quite a following. I was extremely disappointed. While the artwork was beautiful and had a lovely minimalist color palette, the writing was very boring, very uninteresting, and flat. I'll stick with Jhonen Vasquez. Though her cats are very cute.

    I wasn't impressed with this series at all. I don't know what I was expecting from it, but it truly failed to meet any expectations I might have had.

    (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 (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 she brings. I like the oddness to her style, her personality, her mindset. Just the way she handles herself, doing her own thing, inspires me. Sure, not a lot of people get her. They think it's just some "weird comic" but that's the whole point to Emily! It's being weird! It's not about making sense or having an actual plot. It's to have fun, get into the bizarre, see the grotesque, yet still be intrigue with what the dark world has to offer. It's amazing and I love Emily for that. This issue revolves around the theme of lost... and you certainly will feel lost reading this! XD This is so weird, I love it! Nothing makes sense in this volume! It's all thrown together in a bizarre way yet... I felt like I understood it all! Does that make me lost? I guess it does! X3 Personally, I think this issue was a lot better than the last. The references were EVERYWHERE!!! The first one being a spoof on the Wizard of Oz. I love the Wizard of Oz! It's one of my favorite books/movies ever to be created! Seeing Emily take a spin on it was just nostalgic to me. Not to mention the cameo of the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy himself! XD That was hilarious! "Sharon!!!!" X3333 God, I love reading things that takes what I know and messes with it to no end! Emily did an Alice in Wonderland reference as well. "Curiouser and curiouser." I couldn't stop saying that line for the longest time after I read the book... same thing happened after I read this comic! XP There was also a spoof on Gilligan's Island and Hansel and Gretel. Fairytales, people! Do you know how much I love them! Not to mention all the video game references! Donkey Kong, Mario, Pac-man! Dude, it couldn't get any better than that! (Well, if Sonic appeared, I would have freaked because who doesn't love that blue hedgehog!?) Man, this issue! Ugh! *Fangirls* Yeah... this is not so much a review, huh? I just keep getting sidetracked and going crazy over all the cool stuff without saying anything about the actual issue... oh well! Emily has such a great wit. She made me laugh quite a few times with her snarky comments. Just everything about this girl puts me in a better mood. Who cares if she's a bit twisted? I know I don't! The art is just as amazing as it was in the first volume. With all the black, white, and red, it makes it for a very interesting read. There is a slight difference in this volume, though! They added just a little bit more color! There's some green and yellow but I will let you see for yourself~ Can't give everything away now, can I? Pick this up, readers! It is such a fun read! It's a lot better than the last issue as well! If you like the macabre and the pop-culture references, then you will enjoy this volume just as much as I did. I guarantee it! It is worth the read! Just... stay away if the bizarre is not something you are into.

    Not bad, but not great. Here is why I liked it. 1. Hints to Wizard of Oz. 2. Ozzie shows up. 3. Effects of Costco. 4. Lost in Space. 5. Bump into Cheshire cat. 6. Old arcade games like Q-bert. 7. The matrix 8. but instead it is a red and blue shoes 9. the shoes hint to take you down the rabbit hole... Darn...couldn't make thirteen...wasn't good enough.

    I love Emily the Strange. I feel like the dark plots are reminiscent of the Addams Family, and the artwork is really inspirational for my own art.

    Lemmed. Some pages had been cut out, and I felt like they just wanted to sell me more Emily stuff.
