The TradeWaiters 30: “Paper Girls” vol. 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang

The Tradewaiters are back! Jess Pollard joins Jon, Jeff, Jam, and kgros for a discussion on Paper Girls volumes 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang. Join us as we talk about eighties nostalgia, book design, the pacing in floppies, “progressive edgy,” and Matt Wilson’s gorgeous colours.

EDIT: Jonathon would like to apologize for mixing up Warren Ellis and Frank Miller. Minus ten points from Hufflepuff for such a slanderous error.
