Reader's Diary #1570- Brian K. Vaughan (writer), Cliff Chiang (artist): Paper Girls 1

I'm not sure that the 80s was the perfect decade to set a sci-fi mystery, but Stranger Things and Paper Girls certainly make a strong case.

Make no mistake, Paper Girls rocks. Centered around 4 kick-ass tween girls who run paper routes, the story takes one mysterious turn after another, getting weirder and weirder. Aliens? Time-travelers? Dinosaurs? Check, check, check.

Combine that with Cliff Chiang's ability to totally capture the 80s vibe (check out the hair-sprayed bangs on Erin!) and gorgeous colouring by Matt Wilson and you've got a series that I cannot wait to continue.
