What Does Vaughan Has To Say About Paper Girls?
Vaughan checked in with EW and let the fans know more about the comics. This is what the novel writer has to say about Paper Girls:
“I think sometimes people read a comic and are like, ‘oh this is just storyboards, let’s just shoot this.’ But comics are their own unique medium, and television can do things that we can’t. Like with needle drops — just the addition of music adds an incredible layer to this that we didn’t have access to,” Vaughan explained.
“These young performers are some of the best younger actors I’ve ever seen. This show really takes such advantage of the medium. If you’ve never heard of ‘Paper Girls,’ if you’re not familiar with this comic, then the show is still 100 percent accessible and I think you will love it. But if you’re a hardcore fan of the comic, it’s still going to be extremely surprising to you.
