But when the youngest Banks stumbles upon the heist of a lifetime, the potential windfall may be enough to bring three generations of thieves together for one incredible score and the chance to avenge a loved one taken too soon. From New York Times bestselling writer Roxane Gay (Hunger; Black Panther) and artist Ming Doyle (The Kitchen). MORE MEETUPS?

Serial Sunday #77: Paper Girls, Volumes 1-3 [ONLINE]

Online event

$1.00

Join us in September for the first of two meetups to discuss Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang. Paper Girls was originally published in 30 monthly issues, which were then reprinted in a six-volume softcover set and later in a three-volume hardcover set. In this first meetup, we’ll ONLY BE COVERING ISSUES 1-15. We’ll discuss the concluding half of the series in October! As of this writing, the kind of close gatherings our meetups require are still neither permissible nor advisable. So, for now, we’ll continue to plan our meetups as online events. RSVPs will receive the link to join on the day of the event. WHERE TO GET IT: 1) The library BPL has twenty ebook copies of each book in this series, so this is the easiest and quickest way to get the book. However, the library has a mix of the 6-volume collection and the 3-volume collection, which slightly confuses things. For September, you’ll want to check out Paper Girls, Book One (which includes issues 1-10) and Paper Girls, Volume 3 (which includes issues 11-15). • https://borrow.bklynlibrary.org/iii/encore/record/C__Rb12286640 • https://borrow.bklynlibrary.org/iii/encore/record/C__Rb12286599 2) Print purchase If you’re looking to buy the series in print, you’ll find it cheapest at InStockTrades.com. • https://www.instocktrades.com/search/paper%20girls 3) Digital purchase • https://www.comixology.com/Paper-Girls/comics-series/54274 ABOUT THE BOOK: In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time.
