Graphic Novel Review: "Paper Girls vol. 1" by Brian K. Vaughan

In the very early morning hours after Halloween 1988, four twelve year old paper girls discover that something big is going down.  As in, possibly interplanetary big or time travelling big...  they aren't quite sure.  But it is big, and it doesn't look good.

I have been seeing this one all over different blogs and whatnot so I thought I'd give it a try.  I'll admit, I was a little confused at first by what was happening, or trying to figure out what was happening and I'm still not completely sure I've got it straight in my head.  It is kind of wild (in a good way).  It is funny too, and I always love good 80's pop culture references.

I love the diverse cast of characters too.  The current two main girls are Erin, who is the new girl and Mac who is the tough girl.  The other two haven't been spotlighted yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

This volume collects the first five comics of the series, and ends with a giant twist.  It compels me to continue reading out of curiosity, as I feel like this is a comic that will get even better as it goes along.
