    ”For once, I just… did what felt right.” What a wild adventure! Every second I spent with these girls was amazing. I love everything, the story, the art, the way we get to travel through time. I've said it before, but I'm saying it again: Brian K. Vaughan is brilliant and I'm totally in love with his imagination! ”For once, I just… did what felt right.” What a wild adventure!

Rather Stranger Things × Timeless, if you're not familier with Timeless then think Back To The Future. And that only hints to a small part of a larger story. Paper Girls is a gorgrously crafted story that is both sweet and crazy at times. It has a lof of mind-boggling sci-fi elements but nothing too hard to grasp and as much as YA elements YA novels are built around. That also avoiding common YA tropes. . . ♦️Storytelling is never just a writer's work. Artists are equally responsible for storytelling. Although reviewing the writing and art of comicbooks/graphic novels separately is a grave sin, I'll attempt talking about both part one by one because most of my followers don't read comicbooks/graphic novels. Thus it should help everyone to understand the work clearly. . . ♦️You've probably heard of Saga or Y The Last Man. Coming from the same writer Paper Girls is also a BKV premium hahahah. The book started emitting spooky vibes. As I kept reading, a whole lot of new and weird elements were popping up. He's throwing 70's-80's refs left and right in this book and the contexts are easy to understand even if one doesn't know most of them. Usually in stories centering around multiple pre-teens/teens tend to characterize each one much differently. Specially if all of them are girls, it's always the tomboy or one girl who's brave and smart. But BKV presented all four girls as tough and smart.. breaking the norm of showing 80's girls being weak. He also balanced themes like friendship, terminal cancer, LGBT, religious views, expectations, depression etc quite well. Putting a rare spin on the sci-fi trope he didn't shy away to nudge police violence, authorities and mention events like Y2K, MJ's scandal etc. The story is just bonkers specially in the last few issues. One may need to scratch one's head if not focusing on side-characters and subplots as well. The twists are entertaining and caught me off-guard a few times just when I assumed where the story might go. The fact that the story is bit on the crazy side yet super approachable for anyone, is a feat that very few can achieve. It's spooky, suspenseful, fun, sweet.. almost a perfect package. It may not be the most engaging story I've ever read but it's a story no one should miss. BKV won Eisner Award for Paper Girls in the best new series category. . . ♦️Cliff Chiang kept the art simple yet so effective. If not for his art, the jokes or the impacts of situations wouldn't work so well. It's inspiring. He also won Eisner Award as penciler/inker for Paper Girls. Matt Wilson is a genius. At first he established a certain color scheme in the mind since the beginning. Then he choose almost the opposite colors to express the weirdness in the panels. But what caught my eye is his playing with the vibrancy and saturations of colors. These things made the world-building comfertable and easy to understand for the readers. . . ♦️I almost screamed when I saw Paper Girls got picked up by Amazon last year and recently the co-showrunner revealed themselves on twitter with a photo that I'm using here because I want to. Chris Cantwell is also nominated for Eisner Awards this year for Doctor Doom so it's in safe hands. I had stopped reading the book halfway because it was frustrating to wait for every issue. Btw the series started publishing before Stranger Things just so you know. . . ♦️Trust me when I say this, Paper Girls is the next big thing hoping the show will be well executed. So get on it. And I should start reading Saga because I haven't yet! (runs & hides) . " Rule 3# : A paperboy sticks to his route from start to finish. "

Masterpiece. This is the word that can best define Paper Girls, it's a masterpiece. Not only it's one of my favorite comics of all time, but it got to surprise me and to captivate me even though I knew before reading it that it would be one of the best comics I'd ever read. First off, MAC AND KJ KISS! Only that is enough to deserve five stars, I mean come on, how can you not find their relationship the sweetest? Now for the rest... Well I love chapter 28, the one with pages divided in four, the storytelling is just great! It tells 4 compelling stories in one, using aproximately 5 pages per Paper Girl. It's just... You have to be a genius to imagine that. I love everything around time travel generally, but this one is just so amazingly appealing and attractive. Once you start it, you really really want to keep reading! It's... How do I put it? It's a masterpiece! There is no other word that can define Paper Girls properly! If you've read it (because if you have not, you shouldn't be reading this), you may have noticed that every arc is about one specific papergirl except for the first and the last ones. To me, the best arc of the series is the fifth, the one about Mac, because THERE'S THE KISS! I'm sorry if you think I'm exaggerating, but the kiss must be my favorite page of the whole book, among with the double spash page where the four of them are smoking cigarettes in a park. The open ending is just the final touch that the series needed to be perfect, it just... fits. The four of them separating in an intersection, then suddenly: "Wait!" Has something happened in the universe? Did they challenge destiny? Will they separate either way? WILL SOMETHING HAPPEN BETWEEN KJ AND MAC? We will never know. Apple. The apple thingy found at the beginning! And then at the very end of the 29th chapter: Apple! From the biblical tale of Eve and the forbidden fruit! It all unifies with the apple! From the beginning to the very end! People may not think like me, but I feel like the end was not really heartbreaking, or sad or anything. The fact that they wouldn't remember a thing completes the fact that 2016 Erin and Y2K Tiffany don't remember anything, because it means that it had to happen anyway. But does that mean that they don't become friends after the finale and cancel the open ending? The answer is no. At the end, they might have changed the timeline, or it might even not be the same papergirls! Maybe we are just watching different Erin, Tiffany, Mac and KJ. Maybe this is a parallel universe where they never time travelled! And also where Mac survives! Who knows? Oh! And you may ask me about the dream they had at the begining of the final chapter? A premonitory dream! Maybe it's not the original Paper Girls future if they had remembered, maybe it's simply what will happen to these ones! But hey, I'm not an analysis expert. I just wanted to have a word to say among many others about this perfect work of art. And the illustrator, colourer and letterer fit greatly! Anyway, thank you for reading it to the very end, I'm very grateful for that, and don't hesitate to comment if you have something to say to me, bye!

    A fun, satisfying ending a series I really enjoyed. I love all 4 of the girls, seeing their journey is so fun, and it's a time travel story that makes sense and is internally consistent!

    Thank you, Brian K. Vaughan, for paying off what you set up! After two volumes of bonkers time travel, this final book, for the most part, sticks the landing. At the very least it sticks it emotionally, and does a solid job tying up most of the looser plot threads, all without slowing down or feeling like it has to dive into the Exposition Zone. I got choked up at the end! "Ack!" - Kathy I almost gave this 5 stars for its sheer thrilling energy and excellent story about young friendship. On some Thank you, Brian K.

At the very least it sticks it emotionally, and does a solid job tying up most of the looser plot threads, all without slowing down or feeling like it has to dive into the Exposition Zone. I got choked up at the end! "Ack!" - Kathy I almost gave this 5 stars for its sheer thrilling energy and excellent story about young friendship. On some level, despite being one of the wackiest time travel comics I've ever read, this is actually about how our lives change as we grow older, how we sometimes don't meet our own expectations, and how we grow apart from people we deeply cared about for reasons we can't put our fingers on. I wouldn't say any of this is really hammered home by Vaughan, but these ingredients are all there, ultimately making this a much more satisfying, um, story stew. Also, I don't think I've mentioned Cliff Chiang's incredible art or Matt Wilson's beautiful colors. This is one of the few comics I've read recently where the colorist feels almost more artistic than the penciller. Wilson adds so much to the tone and style of this comic. It can't be understated. And he's got a great starting point to work off of with Chiang's art, which, in this series, is consistently up there with some of my favorite sci-fi comics stuff. The only real reason I'm docking this a star is its few dangling threads. There are a few things that just don't quite add up, or aren't explored enough, in regards to the world Vaughan has built. The whole deal with Grand Father's origins and the time war, particularly why it's even happening, isn't really tied up in a satisfactory way. It's kind of rushed through, probably because Vaughan was more interested in centering the finale on the girls' relationships (which, fair), but so much of the time war was central to this story that I just wanted a little bit more about it. But, honestly, even that is a minor quibble. For the most part, Vaughan wraps up everything up with a bow, so I can't say these missing pieces ruined my experience or anything. They just could've been a little more thorough. In any case, I wholeheartedly recommend this series. It's a sci-fi blast beginning to end, and even scoops up a little heart along the way.

    What an incredible end to an absolutely wild journey through time and space! The *Paper Girls* anthology remains a beautifully-constructed mosaic, pieced together over its 30 issues with bits and pieces from a multitude of different stories all linked by a common canvas set against the inevitable passage of the thread of time.

The *Paper Girls* anthology remains a beautifully-constructed mosaic, pieced together over its 30 issues with bits and pieces from a multitude of different stories all linked by a common canvas set against the inevitable passage of the thread of time. The artwork, the storytelling, and the dedication to the overarching narrative remain consistently incredible, and in volume three we have the pleasure of seeing all of the setup from the previous two volumes come to fruition. It was clear throughout that every frame of this tale was carefully planned and considered -- every piece from every splintered fracture of time was set just so, allowing the resolution to emerge in a way that felt natural. It is a satisfying catharsis, and I feel privileged to have experienced it firsthand. *Paper Girls* requires a bit of patience. You won get your answers right away, and you need to accept that and go along for the ride. If you do, the ride is an incredible one. I highly recommend the series to any fans of science fiction of graphic novels. Just make sure you get the whole series -- you won't want to put them down!

    I really didn't enjoy the time traveling aspect which is about 60% of this series but I really enjoyed the 4 girls and their friendship and adventures so... overall I would give the series 4 stars, but edition 3 was the worst of the 3.

    I can’t believe this is the end! It ties it all up so neatly and its such a satisfying end! This volume had be laughing and crying and gasping in shock at some of the little easter eggs I found! It’s bitter sweet because its such a good story but I never wanted it to end! Truly the end of an era... or I guess multiple eras?!
