Paper Dolls is becoming a TV show on Amazon Prime later this month! It’s a really cool comic, but it’s also a really wild and weird comic. Writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Cliff Chiang go balls to the wall in terms of crazy time travel and sci-fi shenanigans.
Will the show be able to match that stuff?
We had a teaser trailer last week, and this full trailer doesn’t fill me with too much confidence. It grounds the whole thing in the part where young Erin meets adult Erin, because that’s understandable. But that stuff is only a small part of the madness to come. Will we get that madness? Are they saving it for a season 2, in the hopes that they get a season 2? I guess we’ll find out! But this first full trailer plays things a little too safe for my tastes.
Paper Girls arrives on Amazon Prime on July 29!
Have you ever read the comic Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang? I have, and that thing is a trip! It’s a weird time-traveling, reality-bending adventure for a crew of four paper delivery girls from the 1980s. And it’s getting a TV show on Amazon Prime!
This teaser only hints at the insanity to come from this story, and I hope the show really does it all justice. Though a lot of comic book adaptations these days change a lot of the story, so we’ll see. I have no doubt that TV CGI effects can handle everything the Paper Girls comic has to offer. So we’ll see! I’m excited and can’t wait to watch.
Paper Girls comes to Prime on July 29.
