The formalism of the previous paper is extended to the case of supersymmetric strings. The effective theory which sums up fermionic surfaces is described by the supersymmetric Liouville equation. At D = 10 effective decoupling of the Liouville dilaton takes place and our theory coincides with the old ones. At D = 3 our theory is equilavent to the three-dimensional Ising model, which is thus reduced to the two-dimensional supersymmetric Liouville theory.
