Almost a decade after the end of its initial run, Thrillbent has announced that it has added Terry Moore's award-winning series "Strangers in Paradise" to its lineup of digital comics. The digital comics service, which was founded by Mark Waid and John Rogers, will begin serializing all 107 issues of "SiP" starting with 1993's "Strangers in Paradise" #1, which will be made available to Thrillbent subscribers on July 3. Issues will then be released one at a time every Friday.
"'Strangers In Paradise's' 107-issue epic, a groundbreaking romantic thriller focused on the complex relationship between its two female leads, won the Eisner Award in 1996 and the GLAAD Award in 2008, and has been a personal favorite comic of both mine and John Rogers' since forever," wrote Mark Waid in the Thrillbent announcement. "We're very proud to be able to bring 'SiP' to you every Friday, beginning from the very first issue. Much thanks to Terry and Robyn Moore of Abstract Studio for partnering up on this."
For Thrillbent's monthly fee of $3.99, subscribers will receive four installments of "Strangers in Paradise" in addition to other Thrillbent series. "Strangers in Paradise," which was both written and illustrated by Terry Moore, launched in 1993 with a three-issue series. A following volume launched the following year and lasted for 14 issues, winning the 1994 Eisner Award for Best Serialized Story. The primary "SiP" series began in 1996, running for 90 issues before finishing up in 2007.
