  • Donovan
    More time travel chaos and hilarious teenage badasses. Plus some answers and brief romance. To be utter temporal chaos!
  • E.
    Finally some fucking answers , babes!!Also, that was one hell of an ending. Boy, those girls do not get a break...
  • Christoph
    Holy Moly, what the ... dickens.Also, gleich vorweg - in diesem fulminanten Finale dieser mehr als Timey Wimey Wibbly Wobbly Story bekommt man mehr Antworten, als man sich wohl gewünscht hat. Man merke, vieles bleibt trotz alledem offen und das ist auch gut so ...... das Ganze auch nur halbwegs handlungstechnisch zusammenzufassen erscheint ob der Dichte der Story ... Nein ... mir fehlen grad die Worte. Bin etwas unschlüssig, ob nicht 5 Sterne g...

    I feel like this is one of those series where it's going to be very good in hindsight once it's finished, but as you are reading it the first time it's just like ...what??? Also I still think it's just the height of laziness that they are 'changing the time stream around them' or whatever and that's why future them don't remember any of this happening. It was nice to get a few more answers though and KJ and whatsherface are getting to be pretty a...

    5 stars | That ending o.o

    Things are finally starting to make sense

    Wtf ese finaaaaaal! No me lo esperaba para nada.Ahora toca esperar hasta marzo para el nuevo issue:(
  • Estefania Grajales
    TRUMP! hahaha

    Before I started this, I was thinking "gee, I don't remember what happened in past issues." Normally when that happens, I'll back up and reread the most recent. But because I never know what's happening in this series, I just jumped right in. And remembering what happened wouldn't have helped with this volume. WHAT IS GOING ON?The most confusing part was this:HOW CAN CAN ANYONE OUTGROW THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB?!?!?!

    As our girls keep getting slung through time, some questions are answered, yet more are posed. I’m still pretty confused, to be honest, but this is such an enjoyable series. The art and coloring are just so gorgeous! I can’t wait to see where volume 6 takes us.
  • Garrett
    Far more folding in on itself is beginning to happen in the story, and this might be the biggest cliffhanger yet, but I'm still wedded to this book. Super good stuff, fascinating layers to the various timelines and good payoffs around every corner. I'm in for the duration on this one.
  • Michel Avenali
    Fantastic! Wow what a way to end a volume on a high note.
  • Jason
    Things become even clearer in this latest volume. Which makes all those heartbreaking twists and turns hit that much harder.This series has been stellar and this volume continues that with amazing art and a fast paced plot that slows down just long enough to break your heart.
  • Melanie
    Love love love. Such a crazy good series. I feel like things are starting to come together and I can’t wait for the next installment. The drawings are amazing and the future with all its monsters and weird future-speak is bizarre and so intense.

    HRV: Stvari polako dolaze na svoje mjesto.. Jedva čekam sljedeći dio!ENG: So many things are beginning to fall into place.. Can't wait to read more!

    So much better then volume 4.
  • Taylor
    3.5/5. I'm still intrigued by the story but still majorly confused. I wonder if it might be better to read the whole collection once Vaughn has concluded. I think Saga and Y are definitely easier to follow.
  • marianne
    Great continuation to the series. Answers some questions, provides new mysteries and plot twists without getting too ahead of itself... and ends on a veritable cliffhanger. Looking forward to Vol 6.

    This might be winning over Saga as my favorite graphic novel series right now, but as both are by the author Vaughan, I guess I don't really have to choose. Paper Girls tells a terrific story, done with wonderful art and brilliant coloring. I waited months for this volume and burned through it in half-an-hour. Now the wait begins again.
  • David Basora
    HOW MANY TIMES CAN THESE GIRLS GET FLUNG THROUGH TIME! And seriously, what is the deal with evil clone Erin? I need to read back to when she first appeared to figure out how she got involved in the resistance, but holy cow did that just seem like a bad idea. And I can't believe they met up with Wari and Jahpo again. At the same time, I find it less believable that the circumstances in which they do makes as much as it does. But Vaughan has done i...

    Paper Girls is a series that rewards the patient. It takes about four volumes for the story to finally get through the exposition and begin hinting at what's happening, and that's not something I usually wait around for. I'll usually give a series two collections/arcs to get things moving before I decide if it's something I want to keep reading, but Paper Girls tested my patience. It wasn't getting any clearer, but it also had a lot of interestin...

    Quality Rating: Four StarsEnjoyment Rating: Five StarsI love Paper Girls a lot. It takes the best of 80s sci-fi with the highlights of modern storytelling and representation, along with the unique style and colouring of its artists, and the trademark humour of its writers. It's a lot of fun and even though the story feels a little muddled some of the time, this was the best of the best. We're able to build on the rules and quirks of the series we...

    Up to this point, every trade for Paper Girls has expanded the character for one of the four newspaper delivery girls that are somehow tossed through time and space from the starting point of the wee hours of Halloween in 1988. This time around, the four stuck in the future where many of their pursuers come from, we get an idea on who some of them are. We still don't know the nature of this weird temporal war going on in the background, but at le...

    Many mysteries are revealed -- or at least, have some more clues revealed -- as the adventure takes a detour to the near-future. We get to see the library of the future (yay!), some familiar faces, and some serious consequences of time travel. Along the way there are a good mix of "heck yeah" and "oh crap" story moments, and a heck of a cliffhanger ending to close out the volume. Only bad part is that I feel like I need to go back and re-read vol...
  • Paul Dinger
    The only question I have as I read this series is, why doesn't the future them ever remember the past them? If things are set in stone, if this really happened, then why doesn't anyone ever remember them? I am surely not the only person to think this. Anyway, in this a future self dies, and we find instead of one being separated, Oh, I can't tell. I can tell it ends with the scariest Halloween costume ever! If you are wondering how I am reading a...

    I don't think I get excited for Paper Girls as much as I did across the first dozen issues or so, but this arc felt transitional and as if it were leading to a place where we can finally get something unique and memorable from the series again. Without spoiling anything, I think I was right. The end of this arc leaves the girls in a very interesting place. As for the actual story across these issues, it's still good, and I like this section of th...
