The 5 TV series to recover if you loved Paper Girls

Intergalactic Stranger Things Parallel Universes Warrior Nun Ms. Marvel


It's the year 2143. Sky Police Officer Ash Harper (Savannah Steyn) is framed for a crime that did not commit and put on board the Hemlock ship which transports prisoners to another planet. During a mutiny, a gang of female criminals threaten Harper to kill her. To save himself, he must bring them to safety.


Stranger Things

Our Paper Girls review is was pretty clear on how Brian Vaughan's comic is easily traceable to the same vein to which Stranger Things belongs, the same one that author Stephen King rode with It and Stand By Me. A television product with an iconic cast: among others, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, together with the great return of Winona Ryder to the screen.

In the 80s, in the fictional city Hawkins in Indiana, the mysterious disappearance of a boy named Will (Noa Schnapp) and the sudden appearance of Eleven (Brown), a little girl with special powers, herald the discovery of the so-called Upside Down, a dark parallel dimension populated from monstrous creatures.

Parallel Universes

Created and written by Quoc Dang Tran for The Walt Disney Company, Parallel Universes is a brand new sci-fi series for boys and girls. The first season is available on Disney Plus and consists of 6 episodes.

Sam, Bilal, Romane and Victor are four friends and live peacefully in a small mountain village. Suddenly, the stillness is broken by an incredible phenomenon that disrupts their world. In a fraction of a second the laws of the Universe disappear, and everything is mixed: time and the multiverses merge and the four friends are divided and forced to live in parallel universes.

Parallel Universes The French series is a pleasant product, which if on the one hand takes up the classic concept of time and dimensional travel, on the other hand it manages to do it in a more sophisticated, more refined way , proving to be a particular TV series, and able to reach a large audience, of all ages, as is happening for Paper Girls. A young cast meets the older one with harmony; the mix of lightness and drama subsists flawlessly, avoiding falling into an excess or the opposite.

Warrior Nun

Just like the Paper Girls TV series, Warrior Nun also has its origins in Ben Dunn's comic: Warrior Nun Areala (1993) published by Antarctic Press. Despite a modest notoriety, in 2020 the work gains an entry into television series. Season 1 is streaming on Netflix, and rumors of a second season of Warrior Nun have already spread.

Nineteen-year-old quadriplegic Ava (Alba Baptista) dies mysteriously in an orphanage run by a group of nuns, but when his body is placed in a sacred place, it is attacked by enemy forces. A nun extracts the Sacred Aureole from the body of a warrior-nun and places it in Ava's body to protect her from the darkness, but she resuscitates her and she starts walking again. Now she is the Warrior Nun and a secret religious order is on her trail, while Ava meets a group of guys, including JC.

Warrior Nun As you can read in our Warrior review Nun, the change of protagonist from Shannon (comic) to Ava is not a weakness, but it offers a new point of view. Netflix chooses to focus on the teenager's desire for redemption, focusing its narrative not only on fighting and action, but also on the growth and evolution of the main character. It is a choice that, if appreciated in Paper Girls (as emerged from our interview with the protagonists), certainly manages to conquer the audience of Warrior Nun, also a work that therefore celebrates women empowerment.

Ms. Marvel

This year, the Disney Plus catalog is joined by Ms. Marvel, a television miniseries based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The idea is by Bisha K. Ali (Loki, Sex Education), signed by Freddy Syborn.

Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), sixteen year old and Avengers and Captain Marvel fan, lives on fantasies to escape the monotony of one's routine. Everything changes when the young protagonist finds a bracelet capable of giving her mystical powers; so she chooses to become a heroine just like the superheroes she has always admired.

Ms. Marvel The 6 episodes of the first season are presented as a great novelty, with a metalanguage that often refers to the comic origins of the work, already appreciated by the public in some animation projects such as Spider-Man: A New Universe. The strong point of the series is undoubtedly the perfection with which Vellani interprets the very young Kamala, with that sweetness of a teenager discovering himself and the world around her. Even in Ms. Marvel, therefore, fantasy joins a great grip on reality, the growth and evolution of the protagonist, between lighter moments and others more intense, full of action.
