Staff Picks (Sept13): Terry Moore's The Complete Echo TP
Aug 16, 2013
Publisher: Abstract Studios
After ten years plus working on Strangers in Paradise and winning every award you could in the comics industry, Terry Moore deserved a break. Well, a few months after Katchoo and Francine got to live happily ever after it was time for Terry to bring chaos to yet another woman’s life.
Julie Martin is Terry’s newest addition to his group of strong female characters at Abstract Studios. Julie is in the wrong place at the wrong time and when the fallout from an atmospheric explosion makes her the host for a symbiotic technology well being broke and divorced may not be the worst things in your life.
Through the 30 issues that comprise The Complete Echo, Julie is taken on adventures that cover the physical, metaphysical, religious, and the ever present military-industrial complex. Nothing is ever easy in the life of a Terry Moore creation and the end of the world could be the final chapter or maybe Julie, Dillon, and Ivy (Terry has a thing about triangles; though add Annie and it gets more confusing but more interesting).
Characters develop, change, and learn to survive as the world as they know it changes. Relationships become an important part of this story and those lucky enough to purchase this collection will be glad they didn’t have to wait the three years to read yet another excellent story from Terry Moore.
