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. He has said his greatest career influence is Peanuts' Charles Schulz. His work has won him recognition in the comics industry, including 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".
In 2008, Moore wrote and drew covers for all five issues of Marvel Comics's Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane vol. 2. The following year, he began writing Runaways vol. 2, also for Marvel. This run lasted for 9 issues.
The first issue of his next self-published series, Echo was released on March 5, 2008. Echo ran for 36 issues and concluded in June 2011. It was followed in August 2011 by Rachel Rising, a 42-issue horror comic which won the 2014 Harvey Award for Best Lettering and 2015 award for Best Cartoonist in addition to several other nominations. It was also nominated for an Eisner Award in the categories Best Continuing Series (2012), Best Writer/Artist (2012, 2014), and Best Letterer (2014). His current book, Motor Girl, began November 2016.
Moore has expressed a desire to do a syndicated cartoon strip in the authors notes at the back of the Strangers in Paradise collection books. Some of Moore's strip work was been published in Paradise, Too! and as a second feature in select issues of Rachel Rising.
