    Ok please dont fuck this up like you did with Y The Last Man. It makes me sad that Brian k Vaughn's work isnt given more care. Watch them completely fuck up saga next.

    I get that Paper Girls was out before stranger things, but they could at least not have copied the music. Come on, it's the exact same.

    Can confirm that the 6 volume series is great with writing by Brian K. Vaughan (Runaways, Saga and Y: The Last Man) and illustrated by Cliff Chiang (Human Target and Wonder Woman- 2011 run). Plus filming has already begun on the second season and Vaughan confirmed the show will have surprises for those us who have read the books. Enjoy the ride!

    Even the music is the same as stranger things.
    The music that plays at 0:30 : look up „kyle dixon & michael stein – the upside down“ and tell me that isn’t like an exact copy of that song…

    I just came across an AMA on reddit and came here. Looks great. Does anyone know how many episodes?

    Having just watched a couple of 60s/70s science fiction series, I am struck by the number of episodes back then to what we have now, Stranger Things and others on Netflix, all FANTASTIC 🙂 shows, but less than 10 episodes a year.

    The problem is, whether due to budgetary limits or a desire to streamline the comics, the show flattens the look and scope of the story into something decidedly dull and derivative.

    Gone are the clean lines, gooey gore, and vivid colors of Chiang’s artwork, replaced with mid-budget streaming show cinematography that feels messy and drab even before the brief moments of unsatisfactory visual effects.

    Most of the show takes place at night, a disappointing dusk, or in the flat suburban homes and offices of real life, with little effort to shoot it with any kind of verve or color. When the titular paper girls do glimpse some fantastical elements, they’re hardly eye-popping: a purple filter over the lens here, an After Effects-level ball of time portal energy there. It just looks cheap, which isn’t what you want for your time-hopping adventure series.

    The dodgy effects and cinematography could — could — be forgiven if the show itself was a bit more interesting. But Paper Girls’ own route feels circuitous, and the players traverse it so slowly, that it’s easy to drift off if you’re not paying attention. Little of Vaughan’s tongue-in-cheek humor is here, and what remains feels superfluous as a result: The jokes rarely land with much ferocity.

    This vision of the Terminator-esque time travel shenanigans pales in comparison to Vaughan and Chiang’s, feeling more like a watered-down version of Hulu’s Future Man than anything too original. The comics were a dizzying punk time war across the broad spectrum of the cosmos, featuring multiple versions of our heroes. But this show only has the budget for a couple of different timelines, only a few decades apart, and it struggles to fill that time.

    A lot of graphic novels are becoming tv shows latley. Like Heartsopper, Iyanu, and now Paper Girls! I hope they could make a movie out of "Anya's Ghost" or other graphic novels

    Whoa, this show is amazing! The writing, camera work, edit and acting. Almost finished the series, very happy with it. Prime productions are my favorite. I really hope this gets continued.

    Does anyone else see the similarities with Terminator 2 and Paper Girls. John and Mac are identical. Down to their hair, clothes, and personality. The scene with Mac and KJ escaping on a dirt bike is so similar to the scenes in Terminator 2. The scenes where the Prioress is searching and killing every person the children had contact with is exactly the same as the scenes with the T-1000.
