Paper Girls, Vol. 1 (graphic novel) by Brian K. Vaughan - Paul's REVIEW

*I received this book as an eARC from Diamond Book Distributors/Image Comics via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Paper Girls

Author: Brian K. Vaughan
Illustrators: Cliff Chiang, Matthew Wilson

Recent Release Date: April 5, 2016

Synopsis: 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 smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.


Review: Brian K. Vaughan is such a big name in comic books. Y: The Last Man and Saga are two of my favorites (although I am behind on Saga). This comic definitely has Vaughan's wonderful touch. There is great characterization early on, but so much is left open to confuse the reader. Things are flying left and right with little explanation. It is easy to follow, but more complex than it first appears.

This first volume is crazy and fun. I have no idea where it's going, but I want to follow it wherever it goes. The time travel is interesting and I like that it makes sense so far. There's huge world building done so far, but so little is explained. I give this graphic novel a 5/5 and am super excited for the second volume.
