Strangers in Paradise, Sanctuary

Strangers in Paradise, Sanctuary.jpg




Collects vol. 3 issues #17 - 24.

Francine is middle-aged, married and miserable when, by chance, she encounters her long lost friend, Katchoo. As the two begin to recall their tumultuous relationship, they rediscover the truth about their love and friendship for each other, and how it all slipped away. A powerful story arc from the Eisner Award-winning series, as told by its critically-acclaimed creator, Terry Moore. 


My Review:


“I don’t know what fabric lies beneath the life we live, but on the other side of our mortal pain is a place of sanctuary.” 


So much great poetry in here! I love how Francine and Katchoo are reflecting on their lives in this Volume. This does not make it the least bit less interesting, rather enhances the readers appreciation for the characters. I am certainly getting lost every time I open Strangers in Paradise. And that ending!!!

“In the end, it’s not the words of our enemies we will remember, but the silence of our friends.”
