Let me just get this out in the open with the first sentence: I love all of Vaughn's work. So it was without doubt I knew I'd love this.
It centers around a group of paper delivery girls in 1988 on Halloween. Maybe its the fact that its retro, or the fact that the illustrator chose a purple-pink color scheme for most of the book, but this book starts off reading different than his other work - and I loved it! The group stumble upon an alien artifact in the basement after one of their walkie-talkies get stolen. They later discover that their world isn't quite what it had seemed to be, what with the giant dinosaur birds flying around, and the zombie type people trying to kidnap them. Oh, and there's also these He-Man like warriors that speak a weird language trying to kill them.
In typical Vaughn fashion, I have no idea what's going on and I couldn't stop reading. He's able to take many random, weird concepts and force them together beautifully. If you've read Saga or Y: The Last Man, you'll instantly fall in love, and be clueless as to the direction of the story. But regardless, sit back, and enjoy the ride.
I love to read and to discuss books. My preferred genre is sci-fi but I like to read mostly anything.
