Week of Strange Girl – Part 4 – Rick Remender Interview + Nick Stakal Art

Strange Girl Omnibus CoverOne of our long time favorite series over the past 10 years has been Strange Girl from Image Comics, written by Rick Remender with art by Eric Nguyen, Jerome Opena and many more.  This September, Strange Girl is scheduled to get the Omnibus treatment, which is a great opportunity for those of you who missed the series the first time around in issues, or the second time around in trades.

To celebrate the release of the Strange Girl Omnibus, we reached out to Remender to see if he had any unseen goodies he could share with us and boy, did he ever.  Remender gave us SO much stuff that it was too much to fit in one post, so we decided to dub this the WEEK OF STRANGE GIRL and have a week long celebration of the little series that captured our hearts back in 2006.

On Monday, we kicked things off with Remender’s foreward to the upcoming Omnibus. On Tuesday, we highlighted the artistic work of series co-creator Eric Nguyen. Yesterday we got to ooh and ahh over the art of Jerome Opena.

Today we have a double shot for you.  First up is my conversation with Rick Remender on iFanboy Talksplode. Remender and I discuss the origins of Strange Girl as Remender looks back on the project and reflects.

In addition to our chat with Remender, today we also celebrate the art of Nick Stakal, the third artist to work on Strange Girl after Eric Nguyen and Jerome Opena.  Through the exclusive art below, you can see how Stakal conceptualized the world of Strange Girl, as well as some final artwork and covers from his issues.


  1. Are there a lot of spoilers in the Talksplode? I’ve made it through the first trade, but no further. Should I wait till I’m finished?
