Briefly; the story and art are strange.
Trav Swan
Though fans of the original should probably just be happy that this Omnibus is even around considering it's meager original sales numbers.

And this is a complete story - it's not one where it ends with you wondering what the hell just happened.

First of all I'm shocked there's only one other review for this book. Granted it's more of a fringe title, I guess, but all fans of dark fantasy should give this a read.

I'll just give a brief overview. The story involves Bethany Black in a post-Rapture world after her entire family ascended to heaven. She was taken captive by a red demon lord and forced to work in a bar in the red demon zone(there are 3 types of demons: red, blue, and black). She befriends a highly non-PC demon named Bloato who overhears that there's one last gateway to heaven on Earth in Europe and the two set off to find it.

Basically if you're a fan of dark comedy and fantasy stories this'll be right up your alley. If you like Sandman or Hellboy I think you'll dig this story. It's not for everybody as if you're deeply religious you may not like it. Just keep in mind this is a story based on biblical events - go in with an open mind. The sidekick Bloato's firggin hilarious - he's always got something to say whether it's offensive or references to movies but the lines fit in perfectly with the setting. Also the artwork looks great. And this is a complete story - it's not one where it ends with you wondering what the hell just happened. Even though the pace is off a bit in the last couple issues where it feels rushed it has a true, satisfying ending and I couldn't ask for anything more!

This is very early Remender work, that's not as strong as some of his later books, but I was strangely drawn to Bethany Black as a character. Even at this point in his career, Remender knows how to make a cast of odd pieces that form together to a group of people you truly root for by the end of the book.
The art wavers from slightly above to slightly below average at times, but there's no issues with the storytelling. Mostly the linework is a bit loose and rough for my personal liking

The "Omnibus" is a bit lacking though, no slipcase or ribbon in this package. I guess it all depends on what you expect from an Omnibus, but there's really not even that much extra beyond the issues. The variant covers are included, and there's a really heartfelt intro by Remender, but that's really it. Though fans of the original should probably just be happy that this Omnibus is even around considering it's meager original sales numbers.

Overall, a very fun ride with compelling characters and brings up some interesting insight into Remender's thoughts on religion. Are there flaws? Sure. Is this Remender's best work? No. But I was hard pressed to put this one down once it got rolling and the Strange Girl: Bethany Black became one of my favorite female protagonists in the world of comics that is severly lacking of compelling ones.

This book is a page-turner. I have read Remender's Fear Agent before this, and i have to say, that the Strange Girl is much better. It keeps your interest until the end. The only problem that the endig could be less strange.

I'll leave the review of the actual comics to the TP version. Briefly; the story and art are strange. Good stuff!

This book is a solid collection. It doesn't have a dust jacket, but the most important thing to me is the binding. A comic compendium without huge globs of glue? Amazing! Thanks to the flexible binding it opens flat with ease ...and feels quite sturdy.

An adventure through the end of the world. I enjoyed it but not for the price tag of $40.00, maybe for $30.00.
