Strangers in Paradise, Volume 2: I Dream of You - Terry Moore Volume 2 didn't have the same pull for me as Volume 1 and I think it was a bit over the top.

One of the things I liked about Volume 1 was that it was about two normal girls and their daily lives. Volume 2 brings in some craziness. Emma I was okay with, but the Mrs. Parker story line was too absurd for me. It definitely could happen to someone, but it seemed out of place with the air of normalcy from Volume 1.

It also kind of irked me that none of the characters' weight seemed consistent - in one panel they would look an average size and the next their faces would be overly chubby.

I might read more of SiP one day, but I'm in no rush to jump into the next volume.
