Plot Summary
After following the lives of Francine, Katchoo, David, Casey, Tambi, and Freddie (among others) in the 2000+ pages that make up Terry Moore's Strangers in Paradise, it would be a disservice to readers to outline any aspect of this final volume's plot. Suffice it to say, volume 19 is a bittersweet ending to a saga that, honestly, no one (except perhaps the author himself) ever wanted to say goodbye to. But it is a thoroughly satisfying end.

My Own 2 Cents
What more can I say? Like the end of a particularly long and engrossing novel (and I'm talking War and Peace long here), or the end of a long-running and beloved TV series, the ending of Strangers in Paradise simultaneously filled me with sorrow at its passing and helped to reinforce why I love this particular comic book so much. Terry Moore has accomplished something no other comic book creator has yet matched. But I sure hope someone else tries.
