Paper Girl follows a group of 12 year-old girls, doing their paper round in the morning after Halloween 1988. But this is no ordinary paper round, when the girls stumble across a group of strange men.
This edition is a bind up of editions 1 to 5 of Saga writer Brian K. Vaughan’s newest series.
I really enjoyed this graphic novel. It was a lot of fun, and seemed to have a middle grade novel kind of tone to it (except for the strong language used). I enjoyed the mysterious goings on, and there are some great twists and turns (including a major cliffhanger at the end!).
While it was a fun story, it was the art work that made this stand out for me. The colour scheme was gorgeous and really added to the mysterious atmosphere where appropriate.
I look forward to the continuation of this series. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
(As a side note, it’s a shame that the Goodreads synopsis doesn’t seem to call out the science fiction aspect of this story.)
