Throwback to the 80’s; Paper Girls Volume 1 & 2

I have recently been reading a lot of Image graphic novels lately. One such comic that I’m loving right now is Papergirls. The references to the ’80s, pterodactyl-like creatures flying around Cleveland, and female teenagers being the protagonists in an alien invasion make Papergirls a must-read for 2017.

[Image is a cover of a graphic novel titled Paper Girls 1] It features four female teenagers, one on the left is smoking. The one on the left is also on her bike]

Papergirls follows Erin Tieng waking up in the early hours of the morning to deliver newspapers. After being harassed by some local boys, she is defended by Mackenzie, KJ, and Tiffany. The quartet notices some strange occurrences including locating an alien capsule, ninjas from outer space and flying pterodactyl-like creatures. These four are the only hope that Cleveland has in preventing the destruction of planet Earth.

I will purchase any comic with mostly all female characters. Zodiac Starforce, Rat Queens, and now Papergirls have all-starred female ensembles. I can’t choose a favorite character because they all add to the story and further the adventure.

Papergirls was such a fun graphic novel and I can’t wait to read the third volume.

  1. This does sound pretty interesting, not sure how space ninjas and pteradactyls come together, but I am open minded. Stranger Things is absolutely amazing. It is also laden with references (when one of the kids thinks another is betraying them, they call him a Lando in reference to Empire Strikes back). As someone who was alive in the 80s, perhaps I would enjoy the references here too
