Reviews Paper Girls, Vol. 5

  • David Schaafsma
    This day and age were living ingives cause for apprehensionWith speed and apprehensionAnd things like the Fourth Dimension.(As Time Goes by, verse unused in Casablanca, lyrics Herman Hupfield)In this, the fifth volume, the girls are still in the future, theres a war on, theres old-timers. . . and the ultimate question here is about fate, and our potential to change the future. A mix of silliness and invention and devastating seriousness, in typic...

    This one gets five stars because it has not one, but TWO scary librarians. Better pay those fines, kiddos. We won't be so understanding in the future.
  • Chad
    The series is rounding third and headed home, full bore. the Paper Girls are now in the future searching for a way home while trying to avoid the Time Cops (or whatever they are called here). Vaughan answers lots of our questions and things are falling into place. I'm excited to read the end of this. I feel like this series will benefit greatly from reading it all in one sitting.
  • Jenny Baker
    I wasn't expecting that ending at all! This series just keeps getting better and I can't wait to see how this story continues.
  • Dennis
    Well, it was fun. But to take a break of more than a year from this series was definitely too long.The girls turn up in the future and it seems like Vaughan really had a nice plan in place for this series and one by one it is all coming together now. But I couldn't connect all the dots, because too much time has passed for me personally since the last volume.Future Cleveland was a nice setting, and the artwork by Chiang and Wilson is once again f...
  • Donovan
    More time travel chaos and hilarious teenage badasses. Plus some answers and brief romance. To be utter temporal chaos!
  • Katherine Elizabeth
    Not as good as the previous 4 volumes, but still entertaining nonetheless!
  • Jerrie (redwritinghood)
    More time travel weirdness with the paper girls. This continues to be a great series. In this, the fifth volume, some things are starting to become clearer, but by no means clear.
  • E.
    Finally some fucking answers , babes!!Also, that was one hell of an ending. Boy, those girls do not get a break... __________________________insta | twitter | blog | booksirens | duolingo

    3.5 stars. Sadly, this installment was a little less amazing than the others before, and a lot more confusing. Still good enough to make me want to read on, especially as the end is one fantastically teasy cliff hanger.
  • Rod Brown
    The penultimate volume really got my pulse racing. Love the library shout-outs. I'm so pumped I'm thinking I may reread this series from the start before the final volume (or maybe right after). Hope they stick the landing.
  • Chanelle
    WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!! this is THE BEST volume of this series that ive read so far!!! I love how Macs character is developing and even though she can be such a mess shes learning more and more about her actions and her place in the group and the respect and care she should have for others, and one person in particular *wink wink*. Shes literally my favorite now and Im so glad about it!! Both her and Erin are THE MAINS. This volume SENT ME TO...
  • Devann
    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...

    I think I still like this. I mean, I can't say I understand it any more than I have in the past, but it feels like it's still good. Things are certainly still interesting. The art is cool. And I get the sense that the story is on its way to wrapping up at this point, so I'm curious to see where that goes.
  • Karl
    Fabulous ! I cant believe this series is apparently ending with Volume 6. There are so many loose ends. Ill try not to spoil this but the romance was a pleasant surprise and the demise of a character was heroic. Love and death and the bountiful heart and soul of this great team of girls. Im saving my 5 star rating for the finale ! Dont let me down Vaughan. Fabulous ! I can’t believe this series is apparently ending with Volume 6. There are so...
  • britt_brooke
    As our girls keep getting slung through time, some questions are answered, yet more are posed. Im still pretty confused, to be honest, but this is such an enjoyable series. The art and coloring are just so gorgeous! I cant wait to see where volume 6 takes us. 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 ...

    Paper Girls (Vol 5): Story gaining momentum and richnessThis is the fifth volume of Brian K. Vaughans PAPER GIRLS, and the larger story is really starting to take shape. The early volumes were quite elliptical and disorienting, so its great to be able to understand the various storylines and the larger world-building that is revealed, and get to know and like the four main protagonists even more as they are thrown into a series of tense adventure...
  • Crystal Starr Light
    Bullet Review:Once again, I'm playing catch-up and desperately trying to remember what happened last volume(s). Where is this going? Where were we? Is there a philosophy to this time travel or does Vaughan throw up whatever sounds good at the moment?And then by the end, I've gotten so sucked into the story, I'm like, "Does it matter?"
  • Lauren Stoolfire
    This series is so addicting and it was so easy to speed through this installment. I'm not ready for this to end in the next volume.
  • Robert
    It feels like a penultimate volume. If there is more than one more, they're stretching it.
  • Brendan
    5The time element is growing weirder by the volume and I can't put this series down. Obviously this is super excited statement as holding a book all day would be insane and annoying, but who's complaining. Everything you have loved about the Paper Girls series is right here and if you're seeing this for the first time, trust me it's worth checking out. The mythology started unfolding at volume 3 and here it is starting to twist and turn. Why the ...
  • Melissa
    Another mind-bendy time-twisty ride with the Paper Girls!
  • Mandy
    This penultimate volume is packed with revelations. This time around the girls end up in the future, and they meet up with some familiar faces. Like all the previous volumes, this ends on a cliff hanger, but the 6th and final volume doesn't come out until October.
  • Fox
    Oh man.This volume takes everything a step further. More answers, and more questions generated. More death and devastation. Can fates be changed? Can you truly live and and remain all right if you know when, how, and where you die? Or even see yourself die? How much can life be changed? Moreover, should it?Pieces of previous volumes are being filled in, and consequences are numerous. We learn that 'evil clone' is horrifically bigoted slang that w...
  • Ashley
    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?!?!?!
  • Shannon Appelcline
    This time around we're in the future. We get a delightful amount of timey-wimeyness, some secrets on who a few of these future weirdos are, and lots of great characters. This continues to be a super decompressed story that probably won't make total sense until you read the whole thing together, but this is nonetheless one of the better volumes.
  • Izza
    5 stars | That ending o.o
  • Lu
    Things are finally starting to make sense
  • Zedsdead
    Visual spectacle, witty banter, time travelly twists, and a remarkable color scheme.Just when it looks like Vaughan is winding down, he shakes things up and we're off to the races again.
