Is there such a thing as too much imagination? A limit on new ideas?
That's what Emily the Strange and her band mate Willow are told by a fussy visitor in a story that's part of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund's and Image Comics' 48-page, all-ages-appropriate "Liberty Annual 2014," which benefits the CBLDF's 1st Amendment work. And don't worry -- the young rock 'n' roll rebels aren't going to stand for that your-thoughts-are-too-unruly business.
"Emily and the Strangers in ... The Idea Factory" has a story by Mariah Huehner ("True Blood: All Together Now") and Emily the Strange creator Rob Reger, with art by Cat Farris -- the same team behind the recent "Emily and the Strangers: Breaking the Record" miniseries at Dark Horse.
