I want to take a minute to talk to you about Paper Girls Vol 2.. Or basically Paper Girls in general, by Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, Matt Wilson and Jared K. Fletcher. This is easily one of my favourite comic series/graphic novels to date and I am actually kicking myself that I didn’t order Vol 3 and Vol 4 at the same time.
I read Vol 1 last year and instantly loved it. I was coming down after a Stranger Things high and was looking for something to fill the void when Paper Girls was recommended to me. I just love the whole vibe of it, a group of school girls accidentally out to save the world, it’s a bit like the Famous Five meets Doctor Who.
“After surviving the strangest night of their lives in the Cleveland suburb of Stony Stream, intrepid young newspaper deliverers Erin, Mac, and Tiffany find themselves launched from 1988 to a distant and terrifying future… the year 2016.
What would you do if you were suddenly confronted by your 12-year-old self? 40-year-old newspaper reporter Erin Tieng is about to find out in this action packed story about identity, mortality, and growing older in the 21st century.”
If you’re looking to get into comics/graphic novels and aren’t sure where to start pick up Paper Girls, easy to get into and full of awesomeness, aliens and time travel.
