Great jumping-on point for new readers! 6 septembre 2004
Par Kon-El - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Strangers in Paradise is a comic series that's been running for over a decade now, published on a roughly bi-monthly schedule. No superheroes, no spandex, just real human drama. The characters and settings are believable but at the same time filled with dramatic possibilities. The first few issues and storylines feel somewhat forced and even juvenile and predictable at times, but it was the beginning of a series when the writer (Terry Moore) was attempting to establish complex characters and dynamics. This Pocket Book is a great way for new readers to jump onto this title. The clean, consistent artwork will draw you in, and the excellent writing and pacing will hook you for sure. Not a series to be missed by anyone looking for a serious literary masterpiece. The collected format is great as each issue flows very suddenly into the next.

The start of something great 10 décembre 2004
Par Scott A. Misko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you try to read this series in the individual comic issues, you won't get nearly half of what you get in these pocket book series. With individual issues, you have to look for the correct volume as well as issue numbers. Here, the story is perfectly laid out. We get a long look at the characters of Francine, Katchoo, and David and their development over a period of time. This is lost when reading the indiviual issues.

I have to say that the writing is top notch with every conceivable twist and turn. I found it hard to put down and was glad when volume 2 came out. Volume three hits the racks next week and will certainly find it's way into my collection.

Fantastic comic! 20 novembre 2004
Par Kate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I read this after the Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 2, so it is only now that all the niches fit together and this wonderful series is laid out before me.

The strength of this series is undoubtedly its characterisation. Very few comics have such a powerful and realistic portrayal. 'Strangers in Paradise' is an ode to the hidden depth and powerful beauty of women, irrespective of size etc. I think that is such an important message in contemporary times, and this series is incredibly empowering to actually read.

The art is beautiful and detailed and the storyline is gripping and completely addictive. This is a particularly good value buy, since all the 'Strangers in Paradise' books are correlated. The compilation is also an excellent way of developing a depth of understanding and appreciation for its entirity, while reading each edition tends to segement the series. The pocket book size is also wonderful and little, but meaty enough to have long hours curled up reading.

I am beginning to develop a few dislikes to the series, but certainly not enough to give it anything but five stars. Primarily, I think Katchoo is almost a caricature of herself, and her repetitive anger bursts are somewhat irritating and more aligned with the comic 'Hothead Paisan'. Undoubtedly, Francine is the better more realistic more developed character.

Irrespective of this, 'Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 1' is a neatly correlated engrossing saga of friendship and so much more. Highly recommended.

Irreplaceable 4 novembre 2005
Par Jennifer Fitzgerald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Terry's story is constantly on the verge of being overcome by it's soap-opera tendencies and it's editorless meanderings, but that stark fact still remains that Katchoo, Francine and David are probably the three most believable and engaging characters you're going to find in contemporary fiction (in any media). He hold his characters reverently, and sees life well. Strangers is extremely gripping when it dabbles in the ordinary, day to day heartache of caring about friends and family, which more than makes up for it's weakness when grasping at mob-related international suspense. Compulsive reading. And don't be put off by the goofiness of the first few issues/chapters. It takes on a life of it's own, it just takes Terry a few months to pull of that miracle.

Love, Lust, and Revenge 30 octobre 2009
Par R. Silva - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the first collected volume of Terry Moore's love/crime story about two women living in Houston who become involved in mafia intrigue even as they are dealing with their feeling for each other and for a young man with a mysterious past.

Terry Moore ratchets up the melodrama to some pretty extreme levels here. The characters and situations are way over the top, but the result is a fun, funny, and in places intensely tragic story of love, lust, and revenge.

The two main characters are Katina "Katchoo" Choovanski, a man-hating former call girl, and Francine Peters, a quiet brunette who is dealing with her own insecurities with food and poor choices in boyfriends. The third side of the love triangle is David, a quiet art student who hides some sinister secrets.

The book has a great intensity and Moore's stark b/w art style captures the variety of characters nicely. Bits of songs and poetry complement the story, along with two extended prose segments (one of which is a nice noir bit featuring Detective Walsh, who was my favorite supporting character).

The plot is convoluted and (intentionally) improbable, and some of the characters degenerate into caricature for the sake of humor, but when Moore goes for the serious stuff he can really tug at the heartstrings.

If you're looking for a comic book that is not kids stuff, superhero fantasy, or manga, this is a pretty good one to check out.
