The Usual Questions:

Is this the first in a series?
Maybe. It's "The First Emily Strange Novel."

What is the basic concept?
From's product description:

13 Elements you will find in the first Emily the Strange novel:

1. Mystery

2. A beautiful golem

3. Souped-up slingshots

4. Four black cats

10. A sandstorm generator

11. Doppelgängers

Emily the Strange: 13 years old. Able to leap tall buildings, probably, if she felt like it. More likely to be napping with her four black cats; or cobbling together a particle accelerator out of lint, lentils, and safety pins; or rocking out on drums/ guitar/saxophone/zither; or painting a swirling feral sewer mural; or forcing someone to say "swirling feral sewer mural" 13 times fast . . . and pointing and laughing.

Is the cover art favorable?
Oh yeah. I wouldn't expect anything less than fantastic from the makers of Emily the Strange.

What are some of the author's other works?
These two are behind all of the other Emily Strange comics, etc. Check out this interview with them to learn more about Emily. Pay close attention to Jessica's answer to the "overall goal" question. I think the answer is awesome and worth supporting.
