The series began a repetitive cycle midway. It's still good, but nowhere near as good as it had been.
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.

The thing I don't like about these comics is that they're too bloody short. I just feel like I'm getting into the story again and then it ends. And there's only one volume left! Bleh. This was good though - I really liked Katchoo and Francine finally getting back together.

Nearing the end of a great series. Overall great volume, with some very bittersweet moments. Long-time SiP fans will not be disappointed with this novel, I have enjoyed the rest of the series and this volume is a fantastic and emotional read.
Aaaah, I love Strangers in Paradise... Unfortunatley you can aleady feel that everything is coming to a conclusion and that the story will soon be over. It's one of those stories you never want to end. Like life.
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.
Finally finishing up the series. Forgot how good this comic was!
I love this book from the word go
Good book. Like the story
Very fun
The end is near... :(
