I reviewed the first issue of Paper Girls, the creator owned series from Brian K. Vaughn (Saga) and Cliff Chiang (Wonder Woman), and instantly fell in love with it. It kicked things off with the right amount of mystery and nostalgia. By the end of the issue we were left with so many questions and no answers.
Things picked it right where that issue left off and the Paper Girls are not sure what they saw, other than it being a “monster”. They soon learn that there is something worse than the mysterious creature that took their walkie-talkie. But what is going on here?
We have monsters, or aliens; flying creatures, or dinosaurs; time travel; and people disappearing. So what exactly is going on here? Vaughn definitely has me hooked as I feel like this could easily be a Spielberg movie.
The Good: A fun read with mystery and great elements of decades past.
The Bad: Only 22 pages of story. I know this is the standard, but I could easily read more, much more, of this story.
Overall, Paper Girls #2 is another great issue with the right amount of mystery to keep you wanting more. Though I do hope they start giving some answers, or some idea of what is going on by the end of next issue.
