Thoughts about #1.
At the end of the first issue of this nostalgic 1980’s set adventure/SF comic the paper girls of the title had encountered some very strange people, not to mention some technology that wouldn’t be on Earth for another 30 years in some cases.
The four heroes of the comic are utterly unaware of the situation as these are just four teenage girls trying to do a paper round but they discover everyone else seems to have vanished, and they can’t call the police as the telephone is only broadcasting the emergency signal. So they do what any American probably would and go see if they can get a gun.
Getting eventually to Mac’s house, they meet Mac’s stepmother who thinks this is The Rapture.
Buy the comics to see what happens next…
After only two issues I’m pretty much hooked on Paper Girls partly due to the fascinating mystery Brian K. Vaughan is rolling out slowly, complemented by some nice art from Cliff Chiang, but it’s how the pair are creating some nice characterisations of the girls. Yes, there are still broad strokes, but there’s nice little touches that show that as the series rolls on the girls will develop from the 2D characters they are at the minute.
Paper Girls is a splendid comic, I’d start picking it up now if you haven’t already.
