Terry Moore's beloved indie comic Strangers in Paradise launched earlier today on ComiXology, the most popular digital publishing platform in the American comics industry.
Moore, whose current series Rachel Rising launched on the platform back in March, followed it up by releasing all thirty issues of his sci-fi series Echo shortly thereafter.
Strangers in Paradise is celebrating its twentieth birthday in 2013, and will do so with the release of a new prose novel starring the series's characters. Some familiar faces from the long-running book will also guest-star in Rachel Rising in the coming months.
“ComiXology fans already know and love Terry’s current Rachel Rising horror series and have devoured his recently concluded Echo sci-fi series, but we’re more excited than ever to bring the work that put Terry Moore on the map with today’s debut of Strangers in Paradise ,” said co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “With the perfect mix of humor, romance and drama, Strangers in Paradise is an amazing read for hard-core comic fans and new readers alike, and we’re honored to bring the entire amazing work to our world-wide audience.”
“I’m very happy to partner with comiXology in bringing Strangers in Paradise to a whole new audience,” said Strangers in Paradise creator Terry Moore. “ComiXology offers comic book fans an incredible shopping and reading experience, and I’ve been loving experiencing Rachel Rising and Echo in Guided View and both look fantastic in CMX-HD. I can’t wait to hear what fans have to say about Strangers in Paradise on comiXology.”
The series was announced along with Rachel Rising, but has taken a while to get live digitally because of the size and scope of the series.
