Writer/artist Terry Moore has announced that his fan-favorite creator-owned series "Strangers in Paradise" is returning in 2018. Moore originally made the announcement at Comic Con Paris and subsequently confirmed the news via Twitter.
It's true. Announced today in Paris, SIP returns for 25th anniversary in 2018. https://t.co/vll4yvgo6n— Terry Moore (@TerryMooreArt) October 22, 2016
"Strangers in Paradise" began in 1993 and ran until 2007, spanning over 107 issues and three volumes. The series delved into the lives and relationships of its protagonists, Katchoo and Francine. To say that their romantic life is complicated is an understatement, oftentimes finding themselves in the middle of love triangles between one another, while the plot shifts genres from romance, to becoming a crime thriller at times. A noteworthy aspect of the series was Moore's experimentation with different mediums throughout the work, sometimes writing original poetry or songs found in the series, even at times switching purely to prose with a few illustrations interspersed throughout the sections.
The series return date of 2018 is likely because the artist is busy with his latest project "Motor Girl" which is set to debut this November, not to mention that 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of SiP, as Moore noted in his tweet.
At this point, there's been no information about whether or not the new "SiP" will be self-published like Moore has done in the past, or if it will be released through a larger comics imprint.
