Read full description of the books Paper Girls nº01:
It’s the day after Halloween in 1988 and Erin sets out on her very early morning paper run in the sleepy little town of Stony Stream, Ohio. But there are a trio of shadowy figures in black robes and a sack prowling the neighbourhood - are they trick or treaters who’ve stayed out far too late or… something else?
Paper Girls is Brian K Vaughan’s second new series this year which describes itself as Stand By Me crossed with War of the Worlds. Based on this double-sized first issue? Naaaahhh. On both counts. At least so far.
Despite being twice the normal length of a comic, very, very little happens. Vaughan introduces our group of Paper Girls, Erin (the protagonist), Mac (the Han Solo of the group) and the two forgettable ones, KJ and Tiffany. They convincingly talk like teens which is expected from the writer of Marvel’s Runaways. But they don’t talk about much. It’s just waffle.
A sort of plot emerges once the three shadowy figures appear but it’s not that exciting. Maybe I’ve seen too many 80s movies? It feels very much of its time which I suppose is another laudable aspect of Vaughan’s writing.
I’m sure many of you read Brian Azzarello’s New 52 Wonder Woman so you know Cliff Chiang can draw. The suburban setting of Paper Girls requires much less razmatazz on his part but it’s still a great looking issue.
Vaughan knows how to structure a comic so the final page is a big WTF that’ll hook readers into picking up issue 2 (and that includes me) but given how epic and dramatic his other new series this year, We Stand on Guard, was, Paper Girls feels very underwhelming. I don’t need massive scale stories in every comic but compared to his last two comics, We Stand on Guard and The Private Eye, Paper Girls isn’t fizzing with fresh ideas and great scenes and comes off as a little stale.
It’s Brian K Vaughan so Paper Girls #1 is still a decent read - the dialogue is snappy and the main characters are likeable even if a lot of the issue feels flimsy and in need of a driving plot. An ok start then but a very ordinary comic which is disappointing given the talent involved.
Read information about the authorBorn in Cleveland in 1976, Brian K. Vaughan is the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning writer and co-creator of the critically acclaimed comics series Y: The Last Man, Runaways, and Ex Machina (picked as one of the ten best works of fiction of 2005 by Entertainment Weekly).
Recently named "Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine, and one of the “top ten comic writers of all time” by Comic Book Resources, Vaughan’s work has been featured and/or reviewed in countless mainstream media outlets, including The New York Times, MTV, National Public Radio, and feminist magazine Bust, which photographed him for their “Men We Love” issue (don’t ask).
As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan got his big break as part of Marvel’s Stanhattan Project, a workshop for aspiring comic book writers. In the ten years since, he has written nearly all of the major DC and Marvel characters, everyone from Batman to the X-Men.
In September of 2006, Vertigo released Vaughan’s first original graphic novel, Pride of Baghdad, lavishly illustrated by artist Niko Henrichon. Inspired by an unbelievable true story of four lions who escaped the Baghdad Zoo during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Pride is equal parts anthropomorphic adventure and Animal Farm-like parable about the ongoing conflict in Iraq, and was described as "the best novel so far" about the war by the UK's Telegraph.
Along with his creator-owned work, Vaughan is currently writing The Escapists, a Dark Horse miniseries inspired by Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, as well as a new Doctor Strange limited series for Marvel with artist Marcos Martin.
This summer, the new WGA member/CAA client transplanted his poor playwright wife to Los Angeles, where Vaughan is currently working on the screenplay adaptations of Y and Ex Machina for New Line Cinema, as well as other new creations in film and television.
