The classic series, Strangers in Paradise, by Terry Moore is heading to the big screen.
The main characters David, Katchoo, and Francine first appear in the 1993 Antarctic Strangers in Paradise mini series before going on to the 1994 Second Series and the 1996 reboot. The early books are very expensive.

Writer-director Angela Robinson (Professor Marston and the Wonder Woman) is teaming up with award-winning cartoonist Terry Moore to adapt his long-running graphic novel Strangers in Paradise for the big screen.
Strangers in Paradise is a romantic comedy-of-errors that follows Katchoo, a young woman in love with her best friend, Francine. When Katchoo meets David, a young man determined to win her affections, she finds herself thrown into a love triangle between the two suitors. Things only get more complicated when Katchoo’s former employer comes looking for her and $850,000 in missing mob cash.
“I’ve been wanting to adapt Strangers in Paradise for over a decade, since the first time I read it and couldn’t put it down,” said Robinson. “Terry Moore writes real female characters with such breathtaking sensitivity. With Strangers in Paradise, he pulls off the nearly impossible — a sexy, stylish crime story with tons of heart. I look forward to our collaboration!”
