    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best graphic novel 2018! what will happen?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?!Y2K 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...

    Now we're headed to the night the dreaded Y2K was supposed to hit. I remember that night as the New Year's Eve the IT staff had to work all night for absolutely no reason because very, very little actually went wrong. There's a lot of great little inside jokes as the girls run around town while trying to avoid getting stomped on by giant time-travelling robots. In addition to the Goonies-like fun, we actually begin to see how this time travel war...
  • Kate (GirlReading)
    This series is wild. I have no idea what’s going on half the time but I kinda just don’t care. It’s utterly bizarre, filled with badass girls and a plot that’s here, there and everywhere. The art style is gorgeous and it’s always so much fun to read. I feel at though things slowly started to come together in this volume but I’m still waiting for a moment of total clarity. It’s definitely not without its faults but overall, I’m lov...
  • Donovan
    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.
  • Aya Hamza
    I really enjoyed this volume!Things finally begin to make sense. We get some explanations, and a new character which I liked and wish to read more about.I wish I can read the next one... I HATE waiting for unfinished series. 💔
  • Victoria ♡
    I hate having to wait for issues...this is easily one of my fav comics! I can't wait for more!
  • Auntie Terror
    This series is getting weirder and weirder - and better and better. Though this one ends on a horrible cliffhanger xD
  • ✩ Ashley ✩
    ✩ 4.5 Stars ✩ ► 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 ...
  • Jenny Baker
    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...

    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...
  • Anali
    Paper Girls Vol. 5 fue demasiado genial. Este volumen en particular tiene básicamente respuestas. La historia todavía es un poco confusa, pero respuestas son respuestas.Además, este volumen también me pareció divertido, aunque no estoy segura de la razón. Quizás sea porque es muy peculiar y hay situaciones muy inesperadas como la dos Tiff, o el esposo vampiro de Tiff, o la señora loca de los comics o las muertes repentinas. Por otro lado,...
  • Dennis
    Another fun volume!The girls turn up in the year 2000.When flat screens weren’t really flat, but reasonably priced.And people were angsting about the world coming to an end.But hey, at least back then personal computers looked really cool.It’s tangerine, sweetie. Tangerine.Plot-wise there’s not a lot happening here. The girls get separated once again. Tiffany meets her future self and some things that don’t really belong in the year 2000....
  • René Herrera
    What is happening?
  • Roy
    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.

    Even though Saga gripped me for a while i'm now convinced that i probably just won't ever really dig Brian K. Vaughan's work. Oh well.Great line from Mackenzie in this one that must be quoted.TIFFANY: ...we're caught in the cross-fire of some kind of war between time travelers.MACKENZIE: Yeah, dicks from the future are duking it out with dicks from the further future.
  • Kristin
    This is the kind of series where you have to wait until it's done and all the trades are out to read. There's not enough plot in any one volume for you to feel satisfied or the story to make sense and Vaughan just keeps piling on characters and twists to make it feel like things are moving forward any faster than a snail's pace.
  • Rod Brown
    The time travel antics of four Midwestern tweens continue. The stakes keep going up, but I keep thinking, oh, isn't that nice.
  • Chessa
    I love this comic, it’s so weird and awesome. The mashup of nostalgia and future is 👌.
  • Devann
    We are truly living the worst timeline.I liked this volume a bit more than the previous two. I think I'm either finally settling into the pace of everything or else I was just so happy that we finally got an exposition dump to explain some of this stuff lol. I still think it's such a cop-out that they are apparently creating new timelines all the time and that's why the adult versions of them don't remember doing any of this, but I guess I'm gonn...

    We're on Volume 4 of Paper Girls already, and this installment is just amazing. The deeper the plot goes, the more invested I get. The storyline of four girls – Erin, MacKenzie, KJ and Tiffany – trying to get back home to 1988, a simpler time (or so we're led to believe), has so many levels to it that just work. Most of all, it's just damn fun. Can't wait to dig into Vol. 5.
  • Anthony
    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.
  • Manisha
    Finally! Some! Explanations! RTC
  • Leah
    Stuff is happening, and I'm starting to be less confused. Still overall confused, but less so, so progress, yay!And I got the references! Which is always fun with nostalgia elements.We see a little bit more behind the scenes on the big why elements of this story, and I'm glad for it. Of course, our badass heroines are right thick in the middle of it. Confused as well, but still moving forward, trying to figure out how to reach their goal. This vo...

    Für mich hat dieser Band ein wenig geschwächelt. Zwar ist es immer noch spannend den Mädchen durch die Zeit zu folgen, doch hat es mir hier ein bisschen an Inhalt gefehlt.Kleines Update (27.01.2019):Nachdem mir heute aufgefallen ist, dass ich mich an vieles nicht mehr erinnern konnte habe ich den vierten Band noch einmal zur Hand genommen. Ich muss beim ersten Mal lesen wirklich mit meinen Gedanken wo anders gewesen sein. Ansonsten hätte ich ...
  • Bill
    Reading this title in collected editions puts enough time between readings that I have trouble remembering what happened. Which also might explain why I have trouble seeing if there is an overall story headed for somewhere/something. Writer Vaughn is very good but like any time-travel story this one is all over the place (and time). It’s fun though and the characters are continually growing and learning more about each other and themselves, esp...
  • Robert
    The story slows down and the intrusive political commentary inappropriately placed in the mouths of 1980's pre-teens picks up. Lets hope the course corrects in the next volume.
