Plot Summary
The Strangers in Paradise Pocket Books are more compact (5 1/2" x 8" vs. 6 1/2" x 10") but thicker (~350 pages vs. ~120 pages) collected editions of the Strangers in Paradise series. The "pocket books" contain the exact same stories as the original volumes and are more economical. See the plot summaries of the volumes listed above (under "Other Collected Edition(s)") for the plot summaries that pertain to this volume.

My Own 2 Cents
Unless you've already started buying the original volumes I would recommend these instead since they will probably stay in print longer, and altogether these 6 volumes will cost significantly less than the 19 original volumes. The pages are smaller, but I don't think that makes much of a difference.
