Amazon Delivers ‘Paper Girls’ To TV With Series Pickup

One of Amazon Prime Video’s biggest hits has been The Boys and the streamer is looking to adapt another comic property with the series pickup of Paper Girls.

The graphic novel from writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang begin its run in October 2015 and finished July 2019 with a total of 30 issues. A synopsis of the story can be read below.

“Paper Girls” follows four young girls who, while out delivering papers on the morning after Halloween in 1988, become unwittingly caught in a conflict between warring factions of time-travelers, sending them on an adventure through time that will save the world. As they travel between our present, the past, and the future — they encounter future versions of themselves and now must choose to embrace or reject their fate.”

I haven’t read Paper Girls, but I’m a big fan of Brian K. Vaughn based on his comics Y: The Last Man, also being adapted for TV at FX, and Saga. After reading the brief description the premise sounds interesting and I imagine casting will be key for finding the young and old counterparts for each character. Paper Girls, along with the animated Invincible series are two Amazon projects I will keep on my radar.
