“Strangers in Paradise” Vol. 1

By | Jun 18, 2019 | Reviews

“Strangers in Paradise” is one of those few Black and White indie comics to have survived the boom and bust of the nineties, bringing with it a complex story and gorgeous artwork. It recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and is getting a shiny new re-release of the hardcover omnibi. What better way to celebrate than by looking back at the volume that started it all and seeing just how much one series can change over the course of two decades and a little more than a 100 issues.
