A year has passed since the events in volume 13, and Katchoo is in therapy to help her overcome her grief in losing Francine. Fortunately, she has her art opening to distract her, and it's a stunning success--despite a few humorous glitches. Freddie even shows up in an attempt to buy the one painting in the show that's not for sale. (Guess who the subject is?) Agent Bryan also shows back up to make life difficult for Katchoo, but Tambi proposes a deal with the FBI that just might get Katchoo and the remaining Parker girls off the hook for good. Meanwhile, Francine and her father are vacationing on Griffin Silver's yacht in the Caribbean. Francine asks her dad why he and her mom couldn't work things out, and this leads to the discovery of a shocking secret about her mother's past.
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It's actually refreshing to read through an entire volume without Francine and Katchoo getting into a fight, or even talking to each other at all for that matter. And by this point Moore has started really experimenting with the comic book form by including full-page reproductions of Katchoo's paintings, pages from her sketchbook (including a sequence she drew when she was 17 and living on the streets of L.A.), and even a reproduction of her art gallery brochure. There's also a nice sequence with Casey living in Las Vegas and making a living as a showgirl. And as always, the obnoxious Freddie Femur is worth a few laughs.
Read information about the authorFollowing the examples of independent comic creators such as Dave Sim and Jeff Smith, he decided to publish Strangers in Paradise himself through his own Houston-based "Abstract Studios" imprint, and has frequently mentioned a desire to do a syndicated cartoon strip in the authors notes at the back of the Strangers in Paradise collection books. He has also mentioned his greatest career influence is Peanuts' Charles Schulz. Some of Moore's strip work can additionally be found in his Paradise, Too! publications.
His work has won him recognition in the comics industry, including receiving the Eisner Award for Best Serialized Story in 1996 for Strangers in Paradise #1-8, which was collected in the trade paperback "I Dream of You".
It was announced on June 15th, 2007 that Moore would be taking over for Sean McKeever as writer of Marvel Comics's Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane series starting with a new issue #1. On July 27th, Marvel announced that Moore would also take over for Joss Whedon as writer of Marvel's Runaways.
On November 19th, 2007 Terry Moore announced in his blog that his new self-published series would be named Echo and its first issue would appear on March 5th, 2008.
