Comic Book Review: Paper Girls #4 - Image Comics (2016)

Written by Brian K. Vaughan
Art by Cliff Chiang

The girls are still on the run and have taken to the sewers with their new found allies.  Allies may be a strong word as not all of the girls trust the teenage boys, but they have little choice with Erin suffering from a gun shot wound.

The pace of Paper Girls feels so fast although you do not get very far.  Page after page I find myself flying through this series eager for what is going to happen next.  Brian K. Vaughan is doing a splendid job of keeping the readers' interest as well as keeping you in suspense of what will happen next.  Each book is left with a cliff hanger and now I'm looking forward to issue five.

Cliff Chiang is such a superb selection as the artist for Paper Girls.  Facial expressions are clearly a specialty for Chiang who, in each panel, tells Vaughan's visual story incredibly well.  There are multiple characters in Paper Girls and the importance of each person's face conveying what is going through their mind is paramount.

Paper Girls is only four issues in and each issue is only $2.99 each.  I highly suggest getting on this ride before it really takes off.  I don't think you will regret it.
