Meet Emily’s strange creator
We were on a normal book hunt in the Morawa store in the first district, when we noticed many ads about Emily The Strange, plus a couple of fan-girl-like girly girls with black hair and black lips and all of that stuff. What was the reason? The arrival of Rob Reger, the creator of said comic. Having my camera with me was a good thing, and i was allowed (and somehow – even wished. I talked to one of the Morawa guys and he was delighted to find out that i owe a camera and was telling me to use the flash light. i didnt want to, but yeah..) to do a couple of photos.
Strange thing is, according to my boyfriend, Mr. Reger was suprised by the fans. Of course he knew that he was there to sign all of the books and listen to the fans and all of that crap, but he didnt expect so many of them (there were around 15 – 20 fans. only 2 of them were grown ups.)
He had a bottle of Heineken beer, and was really friendly. He even ignored the completely confused old man who was sitting on the podium floor.
No, i did not get anything signed.
No, i do not like his comics.
No, i am not making fun of girls.
Yes, this is sarcasm. HURRAY!
Ze Fans. hurray.
There have been more confused people that didnt know what the fuck was going on there.
I like his sunglasses. Plus, i am sure he wears a wig, but thats just my opinion. The old lady was the one of the two over 15 year old fans.
Heineken beer. ooooooooooh yeah!
This poor confused old man was the star of the meeting. Seriously. I have more photos of him than Mr. Emily.
He is the other over 15 year old fan. Maybe he wasnt a fan though..
