I love Strangers in Paradise, but I hate the Molly and Poo stories. Boring and self-indulgent.

Molly & Poo is a tale told in two parts. The first is a Victorian romance-turned-horror story that takes place in London circa 1908 and is told entirely in the correspondence between Molly, the reserved wife of Dr. Fleming, and Poo, a spirited and independent woman who seeks to set Molly free. What begins as a strong friendship soon transforms into a forbidden romance--with dire consequences. The second part of the story takes place in the present and

This book is a wonder and ties in perfectly with SiP.

I can't say more.

This side story is awful.

This is brilliant story telling. Moore has created two female characters, two in 1908, and two in the nineties, whose lives follow parallel tracks. Some sections are truly poetic, and in both, one of the women from each time period is married to a serial killer. The killer thing is the story, which plays itself out beautifully.

Unfortunately, this segment does nothing to move the main story forward. In fact, it's totally unrelated and could be omitted without hurting the main story.

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.

Very nicely illustrated. I like the variety in stylistic tones, which set a very nice mood. I'm not sure I totally understood what the final result was and I'm not sure it was entirely successful getting its point across. That could just be that I have a migraine headache though...
The prose was much better this time though the story was back to being jarringly disjointed. I'm not sure I'd put this book as part of the Strangers in Paradise universe. Yeah, there was a very brief thing with Francine and Katchoo in high school, but they were cameo appearances.

Molly and Poo was by far the worst part of the Strangers in Paradise series - like Terry just churned out some American psycho crap, while thinking up the next plot arc for Katchoo and Francine.

Kind of weird. Not part of the normal story line, but interesting. Hard time trying to understand.
