|Strangers in Paradise|
Following the examples of independent comic creators such as Dave Sim and Jeff Smith, Terry Moore decided to publish Strangers in Paradise himself through his own Houston-based "Abstract Studios" imprint, and has frequently mentioned a desire to do a syndicated cartoon strip in the authors notes at the back of the Strangers in Paradise collection books. He has also mentioned his greatest career influence is Peanuts' Charles Schulz. Some of Moore's strip work can additionally be found in his Paradise, Too! publications.
His work has won him recognition in the comics industry, including receiving the Eisner Award for Best Serialized Story in 1996 for Strangers in Paradise #1-8, which was collected in the trade paperback "I Dream of You".
It was announced on June 15, 2007 that Moore would be taking over for Sean McKeever as writer of Marvel Comics's Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane series starting with a new issue #1. The series lasted for five issues. On July 27, Marvel announced that Moore would also take over for Joss Whedon as writer of Marvel's Runaways. This run lasted for 9 issues.
On November 19, 2007 Terry Moore announced in his blog that his new self-published series would be named Echo and its first issue would appear on March 5, 2008. Echo ran for 30 issues, concluding in June 2011. It was followed in August 2011 by Rachel Rising, a horror comic which was nominated for Best New Series in the 2012 Harvey Awards and won Best Lettering in the 2014 Harvey Awards.
