  1. Awesome choice this week. I grew up reading comic books and recently struggled with how to introduce my teenaged daughter to the medium. She did not really feel like the traditional comic book super-heroes were appealing to her and could not get past the “silly” super-powered beings in the stories. I was trying to find a comic book series that would let me show her what I love about comics: how the visual art adds so much to the written words (we are both avid readers). This was the series that did it! She is now an avid reader of The Walking Dead, Locke and Key, Morning Glories, and this may be the first MSP podcast she gets to listen to ;-)

  2. Originally, I had written S.I.P. off as a “chick flick” in a comic book form (based on what little I had paid attention to). In the mid 90’s, I owned my own comic book store (Tree House Comics, Emporia KS). When the second TPB “I Dream of You” was solicited, I ordered a copy. I thought I’d read it and then put it out on the shelf to sell if I didn’t like it. Needless to say, no one else got that copy. As I read each issue, I was getting more and more into the story. I was frakkin HOOKED when I got to the big reveal that David was with the bad guys (pg. 220-221 in this collected edition). That scene plays out like the best of movie thrillers, and my heart was beating fast. That never happens to me just reading a comic book. If you haven’t read Strangers in Paradise yet, pick up vol. 1. You’ll be glad you did.
