Last year at comic con I stoked up on some comics and graphic novels. It took me a while to go through all of them, but I finally had time to pick up Paper Girls. So let’s get talking about this one!
The Plot (according to Goodreads):
In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this critically acclaimed story about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.
Oh, I love this one!
The artwork is stunning and I could keep staring at these comics for hours. Its colorful images paired with a vibrant drawing style makes for great comics!
Then there’s the story. Well, no spoilers here so let me just say it’s really exciting and I can’t wait to find out more of it.
The main vibe I get from this is Stranger Things but in comic form. It’s also set in the eighties so that parallel is obvious. Well, the main characters, the paper girls, are all pretty kick-ass, so they remind me a little of El as well.
We already get some interesting plot twists that’ll leave you curious for the rest of the story. You’ll keep wondering what is going on as you follow the girls on their quest to find out.
A cool story paired with great visuals makes for amazing comics! Paper Girls gets a 100% recommendation from my front!
