Comic Book Review: Strange Girl by Rick Remender

  This comic is such a fascinating idea. Coupled with interesting characters, great art, and an intriguing story. The rapture, Angels and Demons, Lucifer. 

Bethany is the best protagonist I’ve read in a long time. But Bloato? Bloato is amazing. 

Not only is it a great fantasy comic, but there’s a great underlining (and sometimes overt) discussion of God’s motivations. 

So it’s fantastic as a fantasy, but also as a discussion of theology. The introduction is interesting, talking about Rick Remender’s struggles and what went into this book. 

…Life without struggle is joyless and without reward.

Powerful stuff. Especially because of who says it. But I won’t spoil it for you. 

I was a bit daunted by the length of this time, but once I got into (in the very first chapter) it really started to fly by. 

And the art is amazing. Even though it changed from time to time. The depictions of the denizens of hell is always interesting when done well. 

Several times I laughed. I might have felt a little guilty but I laughed. This was probably Bloato 99% of the time. 

And that mind-blowing ending?? Insane!

It’s been a rough decade.

Same, Beth. Same. 
Thanks to NetGalley and Image Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
