On the adult side, we find Ali Wong (Always Be My Maybe, Tuca & Bertie) as the older Erin, Adina Porter (American Horror Story, The 100) as the main antagonist, or even Nate Corddry (The Circle, mindhunter), which plays Larry, a brand new character absent from the comics.

PRIME VIDEO’S STRANGER THINGS?

If the comparison with Stranger Things seems obvious, especially in its artistic direction, it is essential to remember that the first volume of Paper Girls was published in 2015, while the success of the Duffer brothers was born in 2016. It remains relevant: a retro atmosphere and a group of he Midwestern teenagers in a race against the clock are all similarities between the two series.

However, the stories quickly turn out to be fundamentally different, Paper Girls revealing a more whimsical and mystical universe, with assumed influences such as Back to the future, Doctor Who Where The Goonies. After conquering many readers around the world, it’s a safe bet that the series will achieve the same success as the graphic saga!
