The rapture has come and the pious have been called up to heaven.
That, of course, leaves the unworthy stuck on earth under the rule of Lucifer.
Strange Girl follows the life of one of the unworthy, Beth, who watches helplessly as her family floats into the sky and leaves her alone on the scorched earth.
As we fast-forward a few years, we find Beth working at a bar, serving demons and being her usual mischievous self — leading to inevitable trouble.
Writer Rick Remender has had a really good idea with this series, which is well illustrated by Eric Nguyen, and the potential shines through after just one issue.
