Paste from my review of Volume 1. I've read most of the series and feel the same review overall applies to everything:

The series has beautiful black and white line art throughout. It's the main reason I ever started it. Terry Moore is a masterly graphic artist and a riveting storyteller. I suspect I'll read anything he puts out. That said, I prefer Rachel Rising (horror) and Echo (science fiction), personally. SiP (as fans tend to call it) is a work focused almost entirely on how people relate t

I'm not 100% about the "later in life flashback" start to this one, but I'm intruiged about where we're going.

Still enjoying the series. Natch.

The downside to an ongoing series in seperate books like this is that, until I reach the end, it's all just "yup, still reading, still liking" unless something radically shifts. Boring blog material, but still.
2012 Reread: I got lost in this for a month. My very first full reread since the series hit its ending. Since I knew where it would start and go and end up. It was just as terrible, wonderful, painful, heartbreaking, heart healing, amazing as every other read. I never stop knowing my heart belongs to this.

Happily, I only found one more volume after this, at which point I will call it a day. Goodreads I see you indicating that many more volumes exist but do you know what I hate to be greedy I will leave the rest for the others..the...Others...hahaa lolol fuck Lost

This series is incredible. Beyond the graphic novel world, I think there would be a far broader fan base if it were advertised to the general public. Whoever you are, man or woman, you should definitely give it a chance.
I could and have re read this series over and over. It has made me laugh out loud, cry and just come to understand how powerful comics can be.
Not the best of the Strangers in Paradise series, but still a fun read.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Jim Lee superhero sequence and covers! :)
Very enjoyable.
