Where to find it:
Summary: 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.

Thoughts: What can I say about Paper Girls other than I am loving this series so far. I think that by this point Brian K. Vaughan can't do any wrong in my book. I have been devouring anything that I can get my hands on by him. His story telling in comics is so different and outside of the box.

I can't wait to get my hand on every issue in this series so far. I am always thinking and theorizing what will come next and when I get the issue is something completely different than what I expected. I like that you really don't know what is going on and in every issue you discover something new. I also love that it's set in 1988 (year I was born), another thing to love about it.

The art and the coloring in this book is just beautiful. It's a perfect balance. I am always so excited to see the colors that are use in this book. They are not drown in your face and it's just perfect for the story.

If you are not picking up this book yet. Please do because it's just amazing. And if you are waiting for the trade it will be coming out April 5th (amazon). I completely recommend to pick up. It's something you will not be expecting at all.
