    things actually make sense in this volume! review to come!
  • Sarah
    Things are beginning to click into place within this comic and I am really enjoying it. I love how bad-ass each girl is and I like how different they all are. I think the story is really cool and I love the illustrations and the colours. I'm really looking forward to the next issue but I'm sad I will have to wait so long! I would definitely recommend this. It may be a bit confusing at the start, but once you get to vol 2 or 3, it is so worth it!

    THE END OF THE WORLD?!YK2 Insanity!Will computers melt down?Will society?--Time Magazine cover, January 18, 1999Our three favorite girls from 1988 are still in the future in this one. And it is a blast. And occasionally awkward, and sometimes moving. Paper Girls is a sci fi time travel comic series, folks, so you must expect things that come with the genre; for instance, one of the girls traveling 12 years into the future, Tiffany, meets her futu...

    While sometimes difficult to follow with its constantly changing cast and setting, the dynamic of chaos theory makes sense in a story of warring time travelers. Meanwhile there’s “some” character development, and bounds of coming-of-age, 2000s nostalgia, and sci-fi grandiloquence. Part of the appeal is to know where this is even going, ending on yet another cliff hanger.

    I hate having to wait for issues...this is easily one of my fav comics! I can't wait for more!

    The girls are back!I love the time travel and the Y2K storyline. It has some funny Y2K headline news quotes from 1999. If you're old enough to remember the fear back then, you'll get a kick out of the quotes. I don’t ruin it for anyone who’s planning to read this, but here’s a quote that’s more recent.”Trump Orders Government to Stop Work on Y2K Bug, 17 Years Later”-Bloomberg Politics headlineJune 15, 2017*rolling eyes*We get to see T...

    ► I LOVE PAPER GIRLS ◄ I’m really happy that I read Vol. 4 immediately after finishing Vol. 3 as there are a lot of plot details that are starting to come together. I’m completely stoked to be on this ride with Erin, Tiffany, Mac, and KJ... bring it on Brian K. Vaughan!I know that I’ll probably re-read the entire series once it’s finished because the creators have done an amazing job hiding clues throughout. I adore the characters, th...

    So, I have to admit, time travel is really not my thing. What initially hooked me on this series was the badass artwork. The colors are so vibrant and it’s all just really beautiful. Love the pop culture references, too. Plus, if you’re my age or older, you probably had Erin’s fabulously 80s bangs and crimped hair. 🙋🏼♀I already preordered volume 5 (once 😜)! So, I have to admit, time travel is really not my thing. What initially...

    Finally! Some! Explanations! RTC

    Having a large break between volumes made the start a little confusing but I still love this series. The artwork, the plotlines and the characters. Great stuff.

    What is happening?

    Brian‘s Paper Girls haben wieder einen Sprung durch die Zeit gemacht und haben den „Jahrtausendwechsel“ erreicht. Jene Zeit, welche in den Berichterstattungen in den Monaten zuvor apoklayptischen Visionen nahe gekommen ist. Die damalige Zeit selbst habe ich persönlich sehr intensiv erlebt. In den Jahren um diesen Wechsel habe ich in einem international tätigen Konzern gearbeitet. Aus „Angst vor einem systemtechnischen Zusammenbruch“ h...

    This time girls land in 2000. Traditionally one of them - this time it's Tiff - gets separated from the rest of the group. And she's really badass about it. We also get some new characters: a comics author who knows too much for her own good, an old-timer of great importance especially for the Grand Father, and... older Tiff. And older Tiff is AMAZING!!! We get to know more detail about the war, the sides of conflict, and the Grand Father's backs...

    I think my enjoyment of this series is suffering a bit from reading it month to month. But it is still enjoyable, just a little hard to follow at times.
  • Cassie-la
    ORIGINALLY POSTED: fourth trade in the Paper Girls series brings our heroines to the Y2K era, where they (and we) finally get some answers. While the world building and glimpses into alternate timelines are super fun, it’s the relationships between the girls and their opinions of their future selves that prove to be the best part of the story … although the giant fighting robots certainly don’t hu...
  • Tom Ewing
    A sub-par volume of Paper Girls still beats most comics, but this one starts better than it ends - the opening cliffhanger is one of the series' best, and the book pulls off the job of making 2000 seem utterly distant from both the cast's root time (1988) and the readers' (2018). But there's a lot more of the antagonists and the macro-plot this time around, and I'm starting to feel a slight concern that they just... aren't that interesting.
  • Davina
    Yes! Finally this series starts to reveal some of the underlying backstory of its universe. I'm so used to reading collections of comics that taking in a series like this episodically has been a real challenge for me - especially as each issue doesn't really contain a satisfying arc of its own. I will still continue to read these as they come out though.
  • Ash
    Finally the authors reveal the plot and things start making sense in this volume. Loved this volume a lot. I think the 3rd and 4th volumes are the best so far. Some moments were really great in this volume. Time travel, people from future speaking in some weird languages, kickass girls - everything I love in one comic.
  • Natasha Chowdory
    This story just keeps on giving I love it. The art-style is gorgeous (but then I love Saga so I was always going to love it). There are some really interesting sub-plots (being gay, getting back home, how easy is it to kill etc.). But I especially love Tiffany as a character and actually how all the girls are being developed - there are some general comments about sexism which viewed in a 2018 lens you realise how much millennials and Gen X-ers w...
  • Zedsdead
    The heroic paper girls are now stuck in the last evening of 1999. Giant robots are battling each other across the landscape, drones are flying around fixing the damage and mind-wiping witnesses, and we meet another one of the protagonists' adult (for a given value of "adult") selves.This is the most coherent volume yet and we finally start to get some long-overdue answers, to wit: the girls are caught up in a millenia-spanning, time-hopping war b...
  • Ashley
    I just want to crack open Brian K Vaughan's head and try and figure out what's going on in there. (I suspect that I wouldn't be able to decipher it, though.) Another great issue! I have a little better idea of what's going on than I did in the last book, but damned if it's still not weird as hell.Pumped for more, I think Volume 5 is going to be fuuuuunnnnn!
  • Jenny Clark
    So they are now in the year 2000 and we get more answers, although I do wonder if the whole Y2K bug is supposed to have really happened or now, since when they are in 2016 everything seems fine. I really like seeing the older versions of the girls, and how they have changed. I need volume 5! And answers! so many answers, though things are clearing up pretty well.
  • Frank
    This series keeps getting better the more they expand the universe, literally as they jump through time. This volume centers on the 1/1/2000 and the effects of the Y2K bug, which are actually caused by a battle in the time war. Or something. Did I mention the giant robots? Also, one of the characters meets the older version of herself and, the horror, the horror, she became a Goth.
  • Jerrie (redwritinghood)
    Liked this much better than the last volume. I love the way they blend futuristic details with nostalgia, which seems like it shouldn’t work but does. Love the characters and the story in this series. Now I have to anxiously await volume 5!
  • Caytie
    Not my favorite, it is weird and confusing and I don't feel like I learned anything new. It was like I read a short to the series instead of an entire volume. I hope the next one is better.... Because I loved the first 3
  • Natália
    Now I'm getting pissed, how far this is gonna go? I have more questions than answers wkbslwkalwnsiwkaokqnahsje but this is still very cool 😆
  • Peggy
    Y2K! Such memories. Still enjoying this series a lot, though the time travel stuff hurts my brain.
  • Samantha
    I liked this one, but when the series is over, it's definitely one I'm going to read from beginning to end in one fell swoop. Or, at least when the next book comes out.
