Ten years after the Rapture, 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 rapture predicted by many came true, and what a good person would endure for not having faith in advance of it.
Featuring story and art by a handful of today’s most acclaimed talents, including RICK REMENDER (Uncanny X-Force, Venom), ERIC NGUYEN (Halo, Sandman), JEROME OPEÑA (Uncanny X-Force, Punisher), and PETER BERGTING (Hellboy).
