From BRIAN K. VAUGHAN, #1 New York Times bestselling writer of SAGA and THE PRIVATE EYE, and CLIFF CHIANG, legendary artist of Wonder Woman, comes the first volume of an all-new ongoing adventure.

Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smashhit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood

Booklist Review: "Three young teens Erin, Mac, and Tiffany find themselves hurtling through time because of their encounter with two futuristic teenagers and the murderous adults hunting them. As they struggle to find their friend KJ, the mysteries of time and space begin to collide, with disastrous results. The second volume in Vaughan's Eisner Award-winning series is no less gripping or odd than the first, and the tension grows as the story progresses. Readers will find answers to some questions but mostly more fascinating puzzles about what is going on in both the future and the past. It is the four girls who really make this series soar. They are young but also determined, stubborn, brave, and loyal. Chiang's art avoids making them look too mature while also bringing to vivid life the dangers and wonders surrounding the girls. Language and violence are undoubtedly present, though neither are overdone. Fans of the Netflix show Stranger Things are the perfect audience for this science-fiction adventure.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Like some great 1980s teen sci-fi/horror cult classic, this aggressively awesome new series from Vaughan (Saga) and Chiang (Wonder Woman) throws alien invasion and time travel plots together and steeps the whole thing in suburban angst and attitude. It's Halloween night, 1988, in a drowsy Ohio neighborhood, and Erin Tieng has just joined up with three of her fellow 12-year-old papergirls on bicycles. Riding the quiet streets like the world's mildest gang, they try to get their routes done without too much hassle from cops or loser guys in Freddie Kruger costumes. But complications arise, including mummy-like scavengers lurching around the dark streets and a wormhole over a football field that's disgorging flying dinosaurs with laser spear-wielding riders. Vaughan's spiky writing and Chiang's vivid, dramatically skewed art make for a potent mix, particularly in the darkly comic dream sequences that punctuate the action. This is that rare period series that lets its references (Dukakis, MacGyver) slip seamlessly into the action. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
