Reading Rocks: Read Paper Girls if you Liked Stranger Things

Brian K. Vaughan you have done it again!  This story will appeal to those that like the Netflix series Stranger Things (as well as any BKV fan).  The art feels like a classic comic book, it has an 80's pop culture feel (yellows, purples, pinks and blues), but is gritty and real.

The 80's nostalgia, the 4 young friends trying to figure out what the hell's
going on, and the sci-fi twists that will have you going "What The F- - - -?" - it all works so well.  If you enjoyed Netflix Stranger Things, you'll probably enjoy these books.

I LOVE the fact that the main characters are girls and that they take care of each other from page one - these are tough young teens who take no shit and stand up for themselves.

In true Brian K. Vaughan fashion the last issue ends with a jaw-dropping surprise cliff-hanger panel.  Very exciting - but also a reason to wait until the graphic novel comes out (Vol 1 is a collection of issues 1-5) so you aren't waiting a week for the next issue.  

I love his pace and his ability to hook a reader from page one.  If you haven't read any of his other books, I highly recommend "Y The Last Man".
