Strangers in Paradise (2nd Series)

 SIP2   (Abstract, 1994-1996)

™ and © Terry Moore

From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide:

The Abstract Studio series starts two months later. Issues #1–9 form a complex story looking at Katchoo’s past while exploring her continuing relationship with David and Francine. Hitherto played for laughs, the stories begin to take a more serious turn. After moving to Homage, the series takes another leap in time, and starts up ten years later, with Francine and Katchoo now living separate lives.

Creator Terry Moore writes in a very naturalistic style. His simple linework is enhanced by rather florid inking. The title has been critically acclaimed for its realism, but there’s nonetheless something not quite satisfying in the way he handles his central characters—there are too many lingerie shots and too much teasing in the way their sexuality is developed for the mostly male readership. ~NF
