It’s been quite awhile since we’ve heard anything about Amazon’s live action adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s critically acclaimed graphic novel series, Paper Girls. But since today’s Free Comic Book Day, Amazon must’ve decided that now was the perfect time to give the first look at the mystery sci-fi show that’ll soon be coming to Prime Video.

For those who didn’t read the series when they ran from 2015-2019, the story goes like this: it’s Halloween 1988, and while delivering papers on their route, four girls get caught in a war between two different groups of time travelers, one of which is called the “Old Timers.” When they inevitably cross with their future selves, some of them are surprised by how things have ended up, and are confronted with the chance to change their futures, all while still dealing with that they’re war they’ve now been conscripted into. The teaser trailer mainly focuses on the four girls as teenagers and hints at some of the emotional ringers they’ll be put through during the course of the first season.
