Yeah, but the last pocket book out ends with the Molly & Poo Saga, I'm SOOO tempted to buy the issues and graphic novels instead of waiting until the rest of the pocket books are out!

I prefer the TPBs myself, since they're larger : giving me bigger art and easier text to read! But if you've got the eyes for it, the pocket books are great to take with you whereever you go. I've been buying the bimonthy issues as well as the trades since Fall of 2003, and I can tell you: reading the issues is great for instant gratification, but it makes the story seem like it moves very slowly. Terry never fits a ton of information into 24 pages, just enough to bring you back for the next issue.

You know, I've been reading SiP since I was 14 years old; so, for almost 8 years now, and I have never been able to sit down and read Molly and Poo in one sitting. I've read the bits a pieces of it here and there, but I've never read it in it's entirety. I even have the TPB of it, and still haven't made it!

It does give me cause to like Miss Molly Lane though; and that is good. I figure I'll read it eventually.

I must confess I only skimmed through Molly and Poo...

Considering there are only a few issues to go, I might just get the TPB until I catch up with the final issues... I have no idea how soon the TPB comes after the issues though...

It seems that every 5 issues there's a new trade, so every 10 months or so. :)

According to the all-knowing Wiki... ;)

"The pocket books collections to date are:

1. Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 1: Contains Volume 1 Issues 1-3 and Volume 2 Issues 1-13
2. Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 2: Contains Volume 3 Issues 1-17
3. Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 3: Contains Volume 3 Issues 18-24, 26-32, 34-38
4. Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 4: Contains Volume 3 Issues 41-45, 47-48, 50-60
5. Strangers in Paradise Pocket Book 5: Contains Volume 3 Issues 61-72, 74-76, plus Complete Molly & Poo 46, 49, 73"

So, I'm guessing one more book to go after it finishes in May.
