Paper Girls, comic book written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Cliff Chiang, is currently in the process of adapting for a series and his co-showrunner was recently introduced.
This is Christopher Cantwell, who works for Marvel as a screenwriter for the new Iron Man comic. Who gives the news is the artist himself, in a publication on Twitter that reveals a photo of the Paper Girls script:

Next to the image, he releases a funny caption in which he reveals his role in the production of the series: “I’m always losing my glasses in the writers’ room, so I finally got a string to wear them around my neck. Old people, I know, but I can do well as a co-showrunner (from a new TV series with Rogers and the brilliant writer Steph Folsom, based on a stellar comic about BKV).
Published by Image Comics (and in Brazil by Devir), HQ Paper Girls is set in the 80s and against the story of four girls with different personalities, but who join in a journey through different points of history and even come across versions alternatives of themselves.
The adaptation is a project by Amazon Studios and will therefore be released on Amazon Prime Video, although it is not yet expected to debut.
