Comic Book Review: Paper Girls #3 - Image Comics (2015)
Art by Cliff Chiang
The girls are at Mackenzie's house and Mac is trying to get the gun away from her mother when there is an accident. On the way to the hospital, the girls meet a visitor from elsewhere.
Paper Girls continues to add surprises to each issue. Issue three has plenty of times that make you scratch your head wondering where this story is heading. Who is the mysterious man at the beginning? Who are the beings that the girls met in issue one?
A lot of questions but we still have good character development. Brian K. Vaughan makes the most out of the limited amount of pages to use banter between the girls and demonstrate each of their personalities. This tale takes place in the 1980s so there is a bit of nostalgia. During Erin's dream/hallucinating experience she is ice skating with President Ronald Reagan.
Paper Girls is three issues in and I still have no idea what's going on. That is actually a very cool thing. I'm impressed by what Vaughan is doing, hooking the audience in and making us all wonder what direction he is taking Paper Girls. Cliff Chiang's art is fantastic looking with this story and is capturing the eighties extremely well.
