Eisner Award-Winning Series ‘Paper Girls’ To Release As A Compendium Featuring New Cover Art
If the ‘Paper Girls’ live-action series wasn’t enough to get you rushing to your local comic book shop so you can jump into this series, Image Comics has given you another reason entirely as the Eisner Award-Winning comic book series from Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang will be released as a collected new trade paperback compendium, ‘Paper Girls: The Complete Story’.
“I’m so proud of this story,” said Vaughan. “And I think our young heroes’ complex journey through time reads particularly well in one epic binge-read, so this gorgeous new collection is the perfect way to enjoy the entire series, currently being adapted as an amazing television show for Amazon Prime!”
“We had so much fun filling these thirty issues with mystery, friendship, and giant robots, and I’m thrilled to present this hefty volume for anyone who wants to dive into the whole story,” added Chaing.
According to an exclusive with DEADLINE, “Always Be My Maybe star and Baby Cobra comedian Ali Wong will join Amazon’s Paper Girls series, based on Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s graphic novel, from Amazon Studios, Legendary TV, and Plan B. She will join series leads Sofia Rosinksy, Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, and Fina Strazza. Stephany Folsom and Christopher C. Rogers will co-showrun. Vaughan, Chiang, Plan B, Christopher Cantwell, and the showrunners will serve as executive producers for the series, which is set to film in Chicago this year.”
Paper Girls follows four twelve-year-old newspaper delivery girls from the year 1988 who uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this critically acclaimed series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.
