    so, i’m enjoying this series, inasmuch as i am still intrigued by what the heck is happening, but this issue is just more questions with no resolution to previous questions and no real indication that the story is heading in a direction where we can gather our breaths and start making progress towards anything resembling a cohesive storyline. this issue is a mix of past, present, and “other” where harsh truths are spoke, albeit in bewilderi...

    It's like all of the eighties Sci-Fi adventures, all of them, all at once. With twelve-year-old girls Erin, Mac and Tiffany finally reuniting with their long-lost friend KJ. Three volumes, three different settings, girls in peril, but no, they are not helpless victims, but ass-kickers.All the gleeful pop references we come to expect from Vaughn: Hitchhiker’s Guide, Bam Bam, Crankshaft, Calvin and Hobbes, Cathy, Stephen King, and on and on. And ...

    I honestly think the author might be pulling ideas out of a hat instead of having a coherent plan for where the plot will go. Last issue sealed it for me—I'm abandoning this series. I just don't know what it's trying to be anymore and I'm either confused or annoyed after each issue.Individual issue reviews: #11 | #12 | #13 | #14 | #15Total review score: 1.8

    No joke, Paper Girls is my all time favorite on-going series. It's fucking fun. It's just crazy fun zany fantasy. And the thing is, Vaughan is building to a pretty good mystery. I really wanna know where this is going. And I'm fascinated by the development that's happening with the characters. The artwork is industry best. Cliff Chiang's illustrations are bold and iconic, and paired with Matt Wilson's eye-watering colors, this shit is top notch. ...

    I am loving this series so much. I'm just mad at myself right now for thinking there were more volumes out because the wait from now until next year is going to be so painful!! Having said that, it would have been impossible for me to not binge read this series. It's so incredibly addictive and fast paced, I've already read it twice over! I adore the artwork, the characters and the utterly bizarre plot line, that doesn't always make sense or seem...

    Another great volume! If this series keeps turning out awesome volumes like this one, this could turn into another one of my favourite comic series. I love the story, the writing, the girls, the illustrations and the colours. I still can't believe I went from rating the first volume 2 stars to rating the second and third volumes 4 stars. I'm really impressed with this and I can't wait for the next one! I would definitely recommend this.
  • Lauren
    3.5 starsHmmmmm...this volume of Paper Girls didn't really captivate me as the previous two. I can completely understand why some people don't like this series and at times it strikes me that Vaughan is literally making the plot up as he goes along. I think for me this volume lacked excitement and there weren't as many twists as I would have liked. The artwork was still top-notch (as always) and the colouring was beautiful but plot-wise, Paper Gi...
  • Tom Ewing
    While the exact plot of Paper Girls remains inscrutable, three arcs is enough to get a handle on what the series does and how it feels. What it does, so far at least, is have its single volumes follow a simple structure within an overall architecture we're only seeing in glimpses. How it feels is awesome.So this third volume does the same things the first two did. The girls arrive in a new setting and figure out its rules: when it is, who they ca...
  • Chad
    Now the girls have entered prehistoric caveman times. I love the 80's references, especially when they ripped on Cathy. I think everyone feels the same way about that terrible comic strip. Vaughan does tie up one little timey-wimey thing with the field hockey stick. We also meet the inventor of time travel. Still loving the series and looking forward to see where the Paper girls are headed next.
  • britt_brooke
    This was decent. I have to admit that I'm a little confused, but I think I'm supposed to be. I still really loved the duo-chromatic (is this a real term? 🤷🏼♀) scenes. The story is compelling enough that I'll read the next volume when it's published. This was decent. I have to admit that I'm a little confused, but I think I'm supposed to be.

    Honestly, I have no idea why I like this series so well.I still don't know what it's about.I mean, I do know what it's about on a general plotline level, but I don't know what it's about and it's such a mish-mash of everything.This particular installment is slow and it drops us all in the Pleistocene era on maybe not even our planet. There's a young woman and her baby running from the baby's 3 fathers who are these muscled mud men of DOOOOOM. Or ...
  • Elizabeth A
    I think I might need one of those universal translator thingies so I can figure out what the heck is going on here. Every installment has the four girls and their future selves in different times and places, and this one is the craziest of them all so far. Are we in the future or the past? Does it matter? Time folds in on itself in dizzying ways, but the art continues to be really good, the girls continue to be brave and work on figuring out what...
  • Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

    Booktube-A-Thon read. Even if this volume was my least favorite I'm still excited for the rest of the series!
  • Chris Lemmerman
    Do you want answers about what the hell is going on? Look elsewhere, because you will get precisely zero in this volume.Instead, we get a prehistoric adventure for the girls as they fight dinosaurs, cavemen, a time traveller from the 2050s, and teenage problems.That sounds a little boring, but I can guarantee you that it is not. The dialogue between these characters feels extremely real, and the relationships that are developing between them are ...
  • Kairi Sane
    This series has got worse after starting so well. Vaughan and Chang are excellent but the series is abit boring now.
  • Marta
    I have no clue what the story is (time travel gives me headaches), but the characters and the dialogue are great, the art is fun, and it is sort of deliciously weird. I will continue reading the series.
  • Michelle Hart
    still have no idea what is going on or what the series even is but damn if it isn't fun
  • Sara
    Last panel of this volume was DOPE and the volume ends on MANY intriguing cliffhangers. Art and #friendshipismagic continues to be tops. Otoh: I don't think I've mentioned yet how jarring it is for Apple products to be part of the story. Feels like weird product placement. And also there is some implication that a certain character becomes gay because they avoided heterosexual assault? Hope that's not what was intended but that's what I came away...
  • Kris - My Novelesque Life
    Rating: 4 STARS(I am not going to do a synopsis as it seems like anything I write sounds like a spoiler.)Darn the cliffhangers! This series is getting better with each book and I love the weirdness of it. I am not usually into sci-fi but I do like time travel. The artwork is great as usual. I am eagerly awaiting the next volume.

    It's like every 80's kid's Sci-Fi adventure in one, with a female cast. You've got time-travel, interdimensional creatures, cave babies, giant sloths, and multiple dimensions. This is a really quick read, but it's got lots of action in it; the biggest problem is that the girls still don't really stand out that much from each other. Still, it's a fast paced read with several strong story beats and some unpleasant topics being discussed frankly. I'...

    3,5 * J'ai beaucoup aimé ce volume, mais j'aurais aimé en avoir plus à me mettre sous la dent. Je l'ai terminé en gros max 30 minutes et après toutes cette attente, cette lecture ne m'a pas vraiment rassasié puisque je trouvais le volume trop court.
  • Sarah
    Loved it!
  • Melissa
    More twists in the time stream as our Paper Girls of the 80's are thrown to the far past, run into a fellow time traveler, and manage a few more crises, adventures, and growing pains.

    Series started well but the novelty was lost on me for volume 3.
  • Andrea Abbott
    I seriously have to wait until April before I can get Bol 4? 😩
  • Crazy Book Eater
    I don’t know what’s happening in this series at all but I will continue reading it anyway. Mac is the best! ❤ I don’t know what’s happening in this series at all but I will continue reading it anyway. Mac is the best! ❤️
