Emily the Strange Pin-up # 1 Joss Whedon Avengers Movie


SKU: 10497 Category:


Emily the Strange is an advertising mascot character created by Rob Reger for his company Cosmic Debris Etc. Inc. For more than ten years, pop culture cultists have revered and adored a mysterious, brooding thirteen-year-old girl named Emily the Strange. Nobody knows much about the young girl with a porcelain face and huge eyes framed by black bangs, and her ever-present brood of black cats only adds to the intrigue–but that hasn’t stopped a generation of rabid fans from letting Emily put her spell upon them. Now, for the first time ever, Emily fans will be welcomed into her dark and, well, strange world–a place where kitty friends talk, the ghosts of famous weirdos come out to play, reality is never quite what it seems, and–above all–a place where anyone who’s ever been considered a little “strange” themselves will be made to feel right at home. The Emily the Strange franchise has a considerable merchandising catalog, including clothing, stationery, stickers and fashion accessories. All of the products feature Emily’s distinctive appearance and frequently feature one of her cynical sayings such as “Get Lost,” “Be All You Can’t Be,” or “Wish You Weren’t Here”. Emily is usually shown accompanied by four black cats. “Sabbath,” the newest cat to join the Strange family, is usually identified by a tear on one of his ears and one bent whisker. “Miles,” the most artistic cat of the group and also the fastest, is identified by his pointy ears, X-mark over his right eye and two pointy whiskers. “Nee Chee,” the thinker of the group (also known as the schemer), is identified by the black and white stripes on his tail caused by a chemical spill and three whiskers. “Mystery,” the leader of the group and the only female of the four cats, seems to be the closest to Emily, and therefore thought to be the cat that has been with Emily the longest. Mystery is identified by the star on her collar, one curly whisker and occasionally a star on her left eye.

Joseph Hill “Joss” Whedon (/’hwi?d?n/; born June 23, 1964) is an American screenwriter, film and television director, film and television producer, comic book author, composer and actor. He is the founder of Mutant Enemy Productions and co-founder of Bellwether Pictures, and best known as the creator of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003), Angel (1999–2004), Firefly (2002), Dollhouse (2009–10) and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013–present). Whedon co-wrote Toy Story (1995), wrote and directed Serenity (2005), co-wrote and produced The Cabin in the Woods (2012), and wrote and directed The Avengers (2012), the third highest-grossing film of all time. Whedon is notable for his signature dialogue, which features dry self-referential humor and heavy emphasis on subtext. His work is permeated with themes of feminism, anti-authoritarianism, existentialism, self-sacrifice, and often uses misogyny to define the trait of a villain, whose antitheses are usually loner heroes who start out powerless and then regain control from community in order to fulfill a purpose. His work in comic books includes Astonishing X-Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel: After the Fall and Runaways. He is also known for his collaborations in online media. Many of Whedon’s projects have cult status.
