GeekChew No. 30: The Final Girls/Paper Girls

The power couple discusses the new movie The Final Girls, starring Taissa Farmiga and Malin Akerman. The movie, now in limited release for theaters but also available to rent and stream online, follows Max (Farmiga) and her friends when they pulled into the world of a classic slasher film. It puts a funny twist on a lot of genre tropes and is well worth a watch. We also talk about the new book from Image Comics, Paper Girls. Written by Brian K. Vaughn with art from Cliff Chiang, it follows a group of paper girls out on their routes in the early morning of All Saints' Day in 1988. The first issue builds the world and characters really well, then shifts gears halfway through and the story arc takes off. Check it out!
