    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best graphic novel! what will happen? a review for erica, who neeeeeds it! so, volume two of this series is even more convoluted and frantic than the first. but i'm more confident now that it knows where it’s going, and i just need to be patient and grab on and eventually it will take me where i want to go. if you are the kind of person who prefers to go into a series completely blind, you might w...

    So I mentioned in my review of the original Paper Girls that I had actually read this one first, which might explain why I enjoyed volume one so much, while a lot of my friends were so bewildered that they were on the fence about it. I also think it says something for this volume that I was able to read and enjoy it without being so confused that I couldn't understand it, and liking it so much that it probably made me more enthusiastic than I wou...

    The second volume opens up with the girls finding themselves launched from 1988 to a distant and terrifying future: June, 2016. However, they quickly notice that their friend KJ is missing and set out to find her with the help of future Erin Tieng. Along the way they encounter some difficulties that make them question who they can trust in the present or future. Side note: the Paper Girls issues are almost impossible to put down. I kept thinking,...
  • Samantha
    2 volumes in and they still haven't explained anything and just keep throwing weird things at us in the hopes we won't notice? I'm unimpressed.
  • Lola
    Much less confusing and much more entertaining than the first volume. I’m happy I didn’t give up on this comic series after the first volume, which usually happens in my case, because there are so many comic series out there I can’t bring myself to read ones I have trouble following. But I trusted that by the time this second volume was published the creators had the time to read the concerns of readers and make the storyline more comprehen...

    i'm still EXTREMELY confused but i'm kind of loving this series???

    4ish stars.Three or four questions answered from volume 1, approximately eleventeen more added or left unanswered, give or take. But... I like it? Art good. Colors ooh pretty. Girls cool.Posted in Mr. Philip's Library

    4.5 starsThis continues to be very strange but very enjoyable! I find that when I read time travel books I get reeeeally disoriented because I hate how many loopholes arise and all the scientific timey wimey stuff just loses me really fast, but this managed to keep my interest most of the time, and I understanded most of it! The art continues to be wonderful and I love Erin as a main character. (She has anxiety!! Yes!!!!) There were still a lot o...

    What is Past is Epilogue"When are we?"Well, I know even less what is going on than I did at the end of the first volume. But sometimes when you are on a rollercoaster going over the crest of that hill you just put your hands in the air and go with it. This is something like ET with badass girls and pterodactyls and iPhones and smart cars and esperanto. It began in 1988 in Cleveland with four "papergirls" (instead of paperboys!), but we are now in...
  • Calista
    I'm still doing my best to keep up with what's going on with this story, but it's better than the last volume. They give a little information up. It's still a ton, I mean so much that we have no clue about what is happening. It would see that time travel and cloning are part of the story. When one time jumps, it seems that any tiny bugs like lice or something grow huge and become like invading monsters. Erin meets her future self in this one and ...
  • Kai
    “The world is a terrifying place, more than I ever realized. But if I had my whole life to do over again, that's literally the only thing I'd change. I'd stop being so afraid of other people.”Well...I'm still not super impressed. I think Paper Girls lacks in world-building and a clear plotline. It will probably all make sense at some point but for now, I'm neither convinced nor intrigued. In comparison to Saga, Vol. 1, another Vaughan creatio...
  • Maria (Big City Bookworm)
    It had been a little while since I read volume 1, but I was able to jump right into this volume no problem. The second I started reading, I was able to jump right back into the story. I loved the element of time travel in this volume. I know it was introduced in the first volume, but it really went all Back To The Future in this one. We saw multiple versions of one of the characters which was pretty awesome! I still have a few questions, especial...
  • Donovan
    PAPER GIRLS is still RADICAL, and yet more amusing and funny than Saga, in my humble opinion. And Saga is awesome. But later on it gets pretty serious and the fun and jokes are in short supply. It could be the spunky teenage girls schtick that helps. Don't care. Because it works. So Volume 1 ended with the time traveling spaceship sending Mac and Tiff and Erin into the future and running into Future Erin. KJ is missing. And the "Old Timers" are i...

    I LOVED this so much I love all the characters and the plot really picks up in this one and yes it's still weird and creepy but that's what makes it unique. Totally recommend
  • Afro Madonna
    Okay this was admittedly WAY BETTER than the first volume !!! Everything was a little bit more understandable . Although there are still some questions that need to be answered . I wish Tiff's future self had been shown though because I was curious about what happened to her future self as well . That Apple shade that was thrown at the end though . Tea anyone ?
  • Kevin Kelsey
    Still no idea wtf is going on, but it's kind of fun so whatever.
  • Bradley
    The story is moving super-fast. I love that about it. :) From doppelgangers to gigantic maggots, riding dragons, to portals through folded space, we're firmly in a very different SF than what I'm used to.And I love it. Case in point: Multiple worlds theory is crap. There's only one time, one world, but it can be rewritten. Repeatedly. Chaotically. Catastrophically.And it's a war between the adults and the kids. Only, no one seems to have their s*...
  • Dennis
    After the entertaining but slightly confusing first volume Vaughan now shows that he actually knows what he’s doing. Things get a little clearer now and easier to follow. While at the same time it also gets a lot more complicated. Because time travel, baby.After the events of 1988 All Saints‘ the girls wind up in 2016.And things get worse. Because KJ is missing. But they have a new crew member in Future (Present?) Erin.Whoa, this is heavy!Tha...
  • Timothy Urges
    Excellent. Things are making a lot more sense now. I'm ready for the next edition.
  • Auntie Terror
    If you like Stranger Things, start reading this series. Now. [prtf]
  • Kate (GirlReading)
    I'm absolutely loving this series. It's bizarre, all over the place, fast paced with constant twist and turns and a badass cast of characters. Plus the artwork and colours are gorgeous. I can't get enough of this strange story.
  • Ashley Daviau
    I loved the first installment in this series but this one blew it out of the water by leaps and bounds! I really didn’t think it could get better but I was obviously proven wrong and I loved every second of it. This series gives me SUCH 80s/Stephen King/Stranger Things vibes and it is absolutely fabulous! I love that we get to see the characters develop a little and have new ones added in as well. And I really loved the twist it took, I really ...
  • Chad
    Paper girls goes all Back to the Future 2 as they wind up in 2016. They soon realize KJ is missing and that becomes the focus of this volume. Erin meets up with her future self and is all "Woah, what happened? I'm a loser" Then a third Erin shows up in a space suit, but it's all good, because we find out her deal before the end of the book. The Paper Girls also battle some giant maggots and figure out how to get to KJ.This book while bringing up ...
  • Sarah
    WOW! I am so glad I gave this comic series one more chance to impress me because I loved this volume! It was SO much better than Volume 1 and now I'm really happy that I found another comic series that I really like! I thought the first volume was really confusing and bland (I gave it 2 stars!) but this comic has stepped its game up! Volume 1 was all about setting the story up but in my opinion it didn't do a great job of reeling me in. Volume 2 ...
  • Lata
    3.5 stars. This set of issues was much better than the first bunch! Things are still mysterious, and there's lots of action, the knights on pterosaurs are back with their bearded leader, and the girls are running around trying to figure out what the heck is going on with their town, while Erin Tieng and Erin Tieng are trying to deal with each other. And there are tardigrades.
  • Connor
    I liked this one much better than the first. It's a lot more coherent and flows better. You also start to learn a bit more about how time works within this series.
  • Anali
    Paper Girls Vol. 2 superó al primer volumen y me encantó. Esta vez, la historia fue un poco menos confusa, pero igual mantiene el interés. Me gusta que mantenga el suspenso y hayan situaciones inesperadas. Creo que la historia está muy bien construida. Por otro lado, las chicas son demasiado geniales. A veces pienso que están locas, pero son personajes muy interesantes. Aún no me decido cuál me gusta más, si Erin, Mac, Tiffany o K.J. Adem...
  • Paz R.M.
    Nope. I don't have time for this. If you thought there were too many mysteries in the first volume you'll be even more confused with this second installment and... I just don't care to be honest. When this series is finished and IF we get all the answers that I'm not seeing anywhere right now I'll continue, but now I don't have the energy to read something that only adds confusion with every issue. Nah, not worth my time.There are few moments her...
  • Artemy
    What a mess.I'm in the minority here, because I thought this volume was even worse that the first one, and the first wasn't good to begin with.So the time-fuckery continues, three girls out of four get straight outta the eighties and into 2016, Erin immediately and conveniently meets her future self, and another young clone-Erin from another future appears, too. There are also some giant tardigrades from the future fighting each other for no reas...
