    One thought on “Strangers in Paradise (Omnibus, Books One & Two)”

    1. I put off reading "Strangers in Paradise" for five or so years. I'd given it a shot every once in awhile, to the point of finishing the first (of six) pocket book editions a few years ago, but for some reason I could never attach to it. The style, the length, the depth of the series were, to sound completely ridiculous, a bit daunting. Eventually my friend Christy, who was prodding me to read it for quite some time, gifted me the Omnibus last Christmas. I was pretty much out of excuses. "Strange [...]

    2. I had heard about the comics, Strangers In Paradise for years. While perusing my local comics shop I would hear people talk about them but shrug and then go to my usual super hero shelves. I read a few reviews online and wondered what the fuss was all about.For my birthday last year (2014) I decided to treat myself to the omnibus edition. I could sit down in one sitting and see what if this was worthy of being on my favorites shelf.Boy is it worth! The story pulled me in from page one! Katchoo m [...]

    3. Omnibus Sale April 2017: I did indeed but all the Omnibus' listed in Mr. Moore's Half Off-Omnibus Sale, so I will be updating my ownership and reviews for all of these. I have loved Strangers in Paradise with a whole heart unconditional, unwavering adoration since I was sixteen and my boss at the comic store, with a recent bought from a customer, first edition, red slash cover, Strangers in Paradise, Vol. 1, first edition, said, "Don't touch this." As you can guess, I did touch it (amid an insan [...]

    4. For me to tell you what's good about Strangers in Paradise would be like my trying to explain what's I love about my best friends I've known since elementary school. There many reasons why its good, so reducing the 'why' to a small flood of snappy, spot on descriptions would be inaccurate, cartoonish, and just not bloody good enough. Its not enough to say Mr. Moore's writing's excellent, or characters are great. That the story is moving and that if its not being hilarious (and it often is) its a [...]

    5. This is a really hard review to write. The gist: I pretty much hated it. Which is strange, because usually when I hate something, there's nothing redeeming me from liking any part of it, but that isn't the case with this series. It's beautifully drawn, and there's something special about watching a great artist evolve over the course of fourteen years, which is the amount of time Terry Moore worked on SiP. The story starts out well-intentioned enough, if not a little too dense. The second story [...]

    6. I read a lot of this when it was still on the shelves, so returning to it brought back a lot of fond memories. This was, however, the first time I've ever read the entire series cover to cover. That experience makes the characters' journeys a lot more powerful, and all the tangents and diversions and circles and time jumps make a lot more sense, deepening the relationships and playing off the themes in endless variations.This has got to be one of my all-time favorite comics, and revisiting it in [...]

    7. I can't recommend this series highly enough to everyone I know, primarily because Terry Moore has a rare talent for creating characters who feel so real you can't help but empathize with them and learn something about yourself in the process. The main story concerns the complicated relationships between a group of friends as forces within and without threaten to tear them apart. Neil Gaiman famously said that what most people don't know about relationships could fill a book, and Strangers in Par [...]

    8. One of the best things I've ever read in any medium. Defies traditional notions of comic books with its incredibly human portrayals of very normal people with the same issues everyone else has. Katchoo is one of the best characters I've ever had the pleasure of encountering in print, and the startling realism of Francine as a woman created by a male(!) writer continually amazes me. Throw away your misconceptions/stereotypes about graphic novels, because this defies all of them. Worth reading for [...]

    9. I can't believe I read the whole thing.This is brilliant. And pathetic. And incredible. And stupid. And romantic. And trashy. And uplifting. And disappointing. There's so much here that you get everything at some point (except believable male characters or heterosexual women). I'm glad I read it, and I'm sort of sad I spent so much time on it at the same time. If I'd have read this before Echo, it would probably rate higher for me. All that said, I do recommend it to anyone tired of the Capes an [...]

    10. I have a complete collection of Strangers in Paradise, with 9 trade paperbacks, and the rest in comics, because I couldn't wait for the rest of the TPB.SiP came to me at a time when I most needed it. It is a fantastic story. I loved every single moment of it, and I cried when it was over (because it was so wonderful). If you haven't read SiP, you must. I cannot do it justice here: the story speaks for itself. These are characters I will carry with me for all my life.

    11. The size of this complete set made me think I could never get through it. But the strong characters and Moore's art made it fly by. The second volume doesn't have the narrative drive of the first, but this was a great graphic novel.
