I live in Italy and I have been noticing a new comic book called Orphans. It is everywhere, you see it for sale in newsagents, comic book shops, and book stores. I’ve been meaning to given it a try, but my Italian isn’t perfect, and that kept holding me back. I was afraid of missing the nuances of the story when reading in Italian. Now I have found a collection in English, so I had no excuse, I had to give it a try.
Paper Girls is a comic I have had my eye on for a while, simply because of the wonderful art by Cliff Chiang. The comic book combines this beautiful art with sci-fi elements and a retro setting, much like Stranger Things combines sci-fi elements with its beautifully filmed nostalgia. The colorist on the title is Matt Wilson, and the color flatter is Dee Cunniffe, and I think they probably play a huge role in how impactful the art is.
