First up: Happy Thursday, peeps! You know what that means? It's Thursday, and Friday is right around the corner ... meaning that we've just about made it through another hectic week. So let's be thankful for that as much as is possible today.
Second up ...
Earlier this morning I happened across a little something something that's coming down the pike compliments of Amazon's Prime Video in late July: they're streaming an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang's Paper Girls, a comics property that ran from 2015-2019. Honestly, I'm entirely unfamiliar with the franchise -- that's not as huge surprise as I haven't followed comics all that closely in the past fifteen years or so (with a few exceptions) -- but I've read it's being billed as a 'coming of age' story set in suburban America with the backdrop of otherworldy mysteries ... so color me intrigued. IMDB.com reports that the show was developed for television by Stephany Folsom (she's also linked to the tepid Star Wars: Resistance cartoon as well as Amazon's Tolkien series The Rings Of Power), and it stars Fina Strazza, Camryn Jones, Sofia Rosinsky, and Riley Lai Nelet.
After a scan of the Information Superhighway, I'm not seeing an awful lot of information about the series. Again, I don't find that at all alarming; Amazon is likely keeping as many secrets under wraps as they can at this point, hoping that maybe they've tapped an all-new vein of adventures for genre fans. I'm happy to post the trailer below, and I'll keep an eye out for any new information I can find as this one's debuting on July 29th.
