Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
I’ve been a big fan of J Bone’s clean, expressive linework since I first encountered it on DC all-ages comics like Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Super Friends. That led me to check out the Alison Dare books he created with J Torres and I loved those too, so it’s extra exciting that he’s now started a webcomic.
The actual name of the strip is Adventure Comics Presents and will feature stories about a variety of characters. First up though is “Gobukan the Accountant” about an monster from another dimension who…well, you can guess the setup. Bone provides more details on his blog, like his creating Gobukan in college and having put him in “a few strips here and there.” He goes on to say, “The comics are just going to be silly, fun little romps with monsters, robots, time travel, aliens and all kinds of stuff that I love (and grew up loving in Saturday Morning Cartoons).” It’ll update weekly.
