Paper Girls Vol. 1 puts us in the 1980s, from the viewpoint of a group of girls that deliver papers. It’s Halloween night and all the weirdos are out, but so are they – doing their job of delivering papers. Only something weird happens, the group splits in two with walkie-talkies and one gets jumped and their walkie-talkie taken. They track the guys to a house and into a basement that has something out of this world in the basement, covered by a sheet.
What happens next is just nutty. I’m not really sure what’s going on and I kind of love it. I like being thrown into a story and discovering what is going on slowly. I know it involves time-travel, some sort of rebellion, and a lot of sassy teenagers. I’ll be interested to seeing where this series goes!
An interesting new sci-fi graphic novel series from the amazing Brian K. Vaughan who seriously has a gift for writing graphic novels.
