Digital Mini Reviews | Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan

Hi there!

Who doesn’t love writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staple’s critically-acclaimed comic book series Saga? If anything, their hiatus has probably eaten away at whatever remaining patience anyone has had today. Thankfully, he has been doing comic books for a while now and another of his beloved, completed, however, comic book series is Paper Girls.

With news of a live-action TV series set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video, with Sofia Rosinsky (Fast Layne), Camryn Jones (Pacific Rim: The Black), Riley Lai Nelet (Altered Carbon) and Fina Strazza (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) rumoured to star as the lead squad, everyone should look into catching up on this engrossing young adult science-fiction comic book series that could turn out to be the next Stranger Things if done right!

  1. I’m not sure if I’ve tried anything by Vaughan or this group yet. Saga is one I’ve been curious about but so far not enough to have purchased or read it. Glad to see you enjoyed this one.

    1. Saga is a favourite of mine and I can only recommend it highly. It’s shocking at every flip of the page. You can tell if it’s a hit or miss with just the first volume too. Paper Girls is much more tamed though. Hopefully, your first Vaughan will be a good one. Ex Machina is another fun one by him. And in Marvel’s world, he also did a beloved Runaways series. Loads of options for you right there! 😛

        1. Oh yes, I have!!! I had completely forgotten that Brian K. Vaughan was behind that one! And speaking of Y: The Last Man, the day after you made this comment, they released a trailer for the new TV series based on it and it looks super promising (as in, super authentic and glued to the source material); you should check out that trailer (or wait till I put it up in my anticipation post for September hahah). I definitely enjoyed the first volumes of it but I never got around to finishing it up. Might have to fix that now though.


  2. These seem so random. The strips you shared made me laugh.
    “Oh, Missy is in hell.” was a good one.
    Hiding money behind an encyclopedia made me think of the old times when everything was so much simpler.
    Looks like fun!

  3. Oof. For real. Missing Saga so much. T_T
    I actually already own volume 1 of Paper Girls but have yet to read it (the shame, I know) but your post makes me really want to finally check it out. Cool to know that it will be a show too! 🙂
