Paper Girls, Vol. 4 (Paper Girls #4) Reviews
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!
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.
Still crazy and wonderful, and now we are at least starting to understand who all the factions are and how they fit together. Plus giant invisible time traveling robots, and goth future selves surviving Y2K... awesomeness!
things actually make sense in this volume!
review to come!
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 were screwed over by society ascribing certain role ...more

The 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 hurt.
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.

Paper Girls is a story so entwined in times that occasionally the story is told in a nonlinear fashion. Which considering that this series is essentially Chaos Theory in a nutshell is pretty perfect. Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Saga, Runaways) and Cliff Chiang (Human Target, Beware the Creeper, Wonder Woman) bring this crazy and chaotic time traveling world to life.
I’ve been waiting months for this volume to finally come out, so imagine how happy I was to have it arrive i ...more
