From Terry: It's funny, how this video and the Treasury seem to compliment each other. They are both retrospectives. They're not redundant because one medium covers things the other can't. It's wonderful. I love the extra DVD goodies, the director comments, the shots of Houston locations, etc.  With the release of these two items, I guess I really have marked the end of an era. Which is good, a nice feeling of accomplishment and time to move on.

Editorial Reviews

A feature-packed look inside the world of Eisner Award winner Terry Moore.  Since its debut in 1993, Terry's "Strangers in Paradise" (SiP) has won numerous accolades and a fiercely loyal fan base.  "Strangers in Paradise" is the story of dark pasts and hopeful futures, double-crosses and true friendship, love and hate.  This 2-hour DVD features an in depth interview with Terry, a tour of his studio, a narrated peek into Terry's notebook and a look at Terry at work.  The video includes several surprises for SiP fans, including an examination of Terry's previous careers as a video editor and a musician.  As a special bonus, Terry performs some songs featured in SiP.  Anyone interested in the workings of the creative mind will find inspiration in this video. 

bullet Hero Video Productions DVD Release Panel at Comic-Con, Pulse News, July 2005
  "In agreeing to be interviewed, Moore placed his trust in Jurls and the Hero Video Productions team, and he has been pleased with the results. "It’s been a really wonderful experience to work with them. I knew I was in good hands."
bullet Stairway to Heaven: "Terry Moore: Paradise Found", Toon Zone, May 2005
  "Terry Moore: Paradise Found is the inaugural DVD in Hero Video Productions’ line of original content, with an extended video interview with Moore forming the core of the disc."

"...exceptionally illuminating for any reader of Moore’s work."

"Moore manages to be both deeply thoughtful and wickedly funny."

"The DVD itself is very well crafted and doesn't use annoying DVD "features" like long and noisy animated menus or overlong transition sequences."

"...the combination of an interesting and engaging subject and the high quality of the final product make this disc indispensable for any fans of Moore’s work."

bullet Reviews, Jazma Online, April 2005
  "Incredible, most incredible!"

"The interview is very in depth, the interviewer really gets into Terry's head and Terry tells all. I was completely glued through the whole interview."

"Hero Productions is producing DVDs that are provocative, thought stimulating and just plain exciting to watch. I can't wait to see what Hero Productions has up their sleeve! Hero Productions are definitely movers and shakers!"

bullet "Paradise" found, Innocent Bystander, February 2005
  "...long and fascinating interview with Terry..."

"The DVD is very professionally done (by Hero Video Productions)"

bullet Latest Features, Digital Webbing, January 2005
  "If you have ever been to an artist’s alley at a comic convention, then you probably know the feeling of the energy that radiates from the gathering of such creative people. “Terry Moore: Paradise Found” radiates the same energy, and you cannot help but be inspired by this artist and his work. If you are already one of Terry’s fans, then this DVD is pure gold; if you are not yet acquainted with his work, then this video will leave you wanting to see more."

"Paradise Found is well organized and very informative to both fans and those who wish to succeed in the comic industry. It is also inspirational, reinforcing that a career as an independent comic book creator is still possible."

"...this DVD holds quite a bit of excellent information and material."

"...the DVD gets a high rating, and I am sure we will watch it again and again."

bullet Reviews, MediaSharX, December 2004
  "The interview, while the core of the DVD at over an hour in length, is just part of the goodies on this beast."

"...the best feature on the disc, I found, was a collection of Moore's music, including songs included in the book and excerpts from his youth as a struggling musician. The most powerful piece, however is a song sung by Desha Dunnahoe."

"...PARADISE FOUND presents something other than extra features tacked onto releases of big league superhero movies. It is an intimate conversation with an artist who has captivated a section of the industry for years, and seems honestly happy to get the chance to put his work out there."

"Whether you're a fan of STRANGERS IN PARADISE, or even just interested in the creative process and how life lessons can be used to fuel ideas, you can't go wrong with PARADISE FOUND."

bullet Reviews, DVD Talk, November 2004
  "Recommended. The movie Terry Moore: Paradise Found package raises the level by giving viewers a bunch of creative extras that explore different aspects of the artist's work. In a lot of respects, the disc may be more for fans than those who have never read the Strangers in Paradise comic book series before; it's a noble independent effort to expose one man's creative process."

Terry's Review

From Terry on his board:

I've seen the Hero Video DVD. It's well done and the film team was wonderful. As for the viewing experience: It's so much me, me, me that it's embarrassing. I'll never live it down in my house. On the plus side, there is a lot about creating and writing and characterization in the video which might be helpful to young creators. It's just all wrapped up in my experiences...  There is music, the best of which is a great song by Desha Dunnahoe, a film composer in L.A. who likes SiP, took the words to This Mask I Wear and wrote a beautiful, lilting song to them. If you'd like to hear it now, go to
It's funny, how this video and the Treasury seem to compliment each other. They are both retrospectives. They're not redundant because one medium covers things the other can't. With the release of these two items, I guess I really have marked the end of an era. Which is good, a nice feeling of accomplishment and time to move on.

It's wonderful. I love the extra DVD goodies, the director comments, the shots of Houston locations, etc. I think the music section turned out great and I know people will play Desha's song over and over again. Nice job of putting pictures to that, it looks like the animatic for a movie or music video.

Customer Reviews

bulletI really enjoyed it. I thought the interview with Terry was especially informative. And even though I’ve been friends with him for ten years, I feel like I know him even better now! :)  Also it was a real treat that Terry mentioned me in the interview! I didn’t expect that. How bizarre to be watching an interview that you are totally riveted to, and then the person mentions your name! :)  I was also talking with Terry and Robin about the DVD they did with you and they seemed very happy with it. --David Mack
bullet"You have given the fans what they want on the level they are capable of receiving it, didn't talk down to them, nor short changed them. This is a breath of fresh air in the comic world." --League City, TX
bullet"My wife watched the DVD with me. Once it was over, she asked "How many trades do we have in the library?" I had to admit there were none (I have most of the first four years of comics tucked in the crawlspace).  I now know what to get her for Christmas. So you got a new fan and dragged an old one back."
bullet"I LOVED the DVD!" --New Zealand
bullet"Got it in the mail today and just love this DVD!  Like an hour and a half of Terry being interviewed and that is more than I can ask for!  Talks at length about many subjects.  Songs of SiP! Love those, and my favorite, the poem Katchoo wrote about her father is set to music.  A great DVD, so glad I have it! Its right up there with the Todd MacFarlane's DEVIL YOU KNOW creator DVD!  Stands proudly up beside it.  Like seeing the 'SiP Locations in the Real World' that was a great concept to actually showcase. Great sketchbook tour as Terry shows us his latest one he just finished filling with drawings and notes.  Really just like this and a SiP Weekend is always a perfect weekend.  I set the 'Mask I Wear' on chapter repeat and been listening to it for maybe the past 30 minutes.  Really do just love this poem.  No, seriously, thank you!  This is such a great DVD!  I really do hope to see more DVDs!"  -- Arizona
bullet"...there's a lotta bang for your buck there, more TV that I'd care to watch in a single night. I just watched the first section, the interview with Terry Moore. It's broken up into sub-sections, but his stories about the evolution of SiP are both interesting and entertaining.  One section I found interesting was the music section. Although also included are demos and club gigs from the late '70s and early '80s, he also performs several instrumental numbers from the comic itself on acoustic guitar live on camera. One (Katchoo's "graveside scene") is a fully produced recording, illustrated with stills from the comic. He does all the talking. We don't hear anyone asking the question, and the camera is on Terry pretty much all the time.  Recommended to SiP fans."  -
bullet"I received the DVD, and it's fantastic!  What an incredible look into Terry Moore's working life!  The interview with Terry was fascinating - I learned sooo much that I wanted to know: about the origins of SIP, how Terry started out, and how he manages his work day.   I loved the sections on how he writes and draws the comic, and it was great seeing the parts of Houston referred to.  Thank you so much for making this DVD - the production values are HIGH, and it's jam packed with all the stuff a fan REALLY wants to know!  I wonder if you are thinking of doing this again, with another comic artist?  I would line up for one, if you did (!!!)" -- Julia, United Kingdom
bulletJust a note to say thank you.  I received my SIP DVD yesterday.  I'm really impressed with the product and your customer service!  Thank you very much! The DVD is great, really inspiring.  Terry Moore is very funny, and also it was nice to be able to hear some of the music from SIP for the first time. Are you planning anymore DVD's like this with other independent or mainstream comics creators?  If so I would be interested in purchasing them.  (Hint Hint - Jeff Smith [Bone] might make a good one... :) ) Keep up the good work! -- Steve, London
