Another round of name that comic

I thought I saw this on MeFi, but my search queries are failing me. Looking for a comic recommended for fans of Saga.

Someone mentioned a comic series that sounded awesome. I was delighted to see that it was available in my public library, but then I closed the library app without writing down the name of the comic. Now it is gone to the fickle winds of time.

I don't remember many of the details about it, but I'm pretty sure it was written by a woman, featured young female protagonists, was published relatively recently (may still be an ongoing series), and had a kind of sketchy cyberpunk aesthetic to the art. I don't think it's published by Marvel or DC. My favorite comics right now are Saga and Ms. Marvel and this seemed like something right up my alley. Hive mind, what have you got?

Seconding Paper Girls -- if it wasn't the recommendation, it's nonetheless recommend-able!

Paper Girls and Motor Crush aren’t written (primarily) by women, FYI.

My suggestion: No Mercy? Bitch Planet? Monstress? The Wicked + The Divine (good but not women-created)?

Sidebar: Also compared a lot to Saga is Spire, which is not written by women and which I do not recommend because the ending is (spoilers) hella transphobic.

Yeah, I know it's not Paper Girls or Lumberjanes because I've read those already (and they're great). Thanks for the recommendations so far, keep them coming!
