Always thought she looked familiar

Just a few minutes ago, BoingBoing posted a story on Emily The Strange being very close to a copy of a character from 1978. With an Emily comic series and film looking likely, so does a copyright infringement suit.

I’m only familiar with Emily via a few shirts I’ve seen (yes, I’ve been inside a Hot Topic) and from Googling the film We Are The Strange and seeing links to Emily instead.

Looking at the book pages they reference, it looks more like plagarism than copying a character. There’s only so many ways you can draw skinny goth girls.
