Paper Girls Goes Back to Print


Brian K. Vaughan is one the busiest (and most celebrated) writers in the industry, but he still finds time for new projects here and there. One of those is a collaboration with Cliff Chiang on Power Girls and in order to keep up with demand, Paper Girls #6 is going back for a second printing. Paper Girls is set in the early hours after Halloween of 1988 when four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.

Paper Girls #6 marks the beginning of the second arc for the series and returns to the story with a bold new direction, as Erin, Mac, and Tiffany find themselves launched from 1988 to a distant and terrifying future. In Paper Girls #7, Erin and her fellow deliverers uncover shocking truths about their own fates. Paper Girls #6, second printing (Diamond Code APR168860) will arrive in stores on Wednesday, July 6th. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 13th. Paper Girls #7 (Diamond Code MAY160649) will arrive in stores on Wednesday, July 6th as well. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is also Monday, June 13th. Paper Girls Vol. 1 (ISBN 978-1632156747) is available now. It can be ordered by retailers from Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond code JAN160645.

Praise for PAPER GIRLS: 

“A great read from top to bottom… Vaughan's pacing allows for immediate investment, something Cliff Chiang and Matt Wilson further with their excellent art.”—IGN

Paper Girls builds a captivating mystery with an all-star creative team.” —The Onion’s AV Club

“You all should be reading Brian K. Vaughan's Paper Girls comic series now.” —Los Angeles Times’ HeroComplex

“Vaughan’s spiky writing and Chiang’s vivid, dramatically skewed art make for a potent mix, particularly in the darkly comic dream sequences that punctuate the action. This is that rare period series that lets its references (Dukakis, MacGyver) slip seamlessly into the action.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“The character designs are fitting for the ’80s, and I fell in love with the overall illustrative style, which was further enhanced by colorist Matthew Wilson’s vibrant, brilliant work.” —Teen Ink

“What I’d imagine you’d get if you mashed-up Monster Squad with an all-female cast, threw in some scifi elements, and set it against some sweet pink and yellow themed art. In other words: it’s pretty gosh darn amazing.” —Kirkus Reviews

Paper Girls: the next great American comic book.” —Vox.com
