Paper Girls, Vol. 1 (Paper Girls #1) Reviews
A cool first volume, not at all what I expected, but in a good way. The plot is honestly kind of wacky. Weird dinosaurs and time/space travelers, maybe? I honestly didn't know what was going on like 60% of the time, but strangely it didn't bug me... There's a Stranger Things vibe with the 80s setting and the kid protagonists.
The Paper Girls themselves are awfully mature for their what- 12ish years? I had a hard time buying their ages. Maybe I'm just out of touch with the young 'uns t ...more
I am in two minds about this graphic novel - I really enjoyed the story told and I see great potential for the future of this series, but at the same time the art left me mainly unimpressed.
This is the story of four paper girls who are on their early morning route when weird things start happening. To be perfectly honest, I don't have everything figured out just yet but the little clues scattered throughout this volume have me highly intrigued and looking forward to the next part. And that last ...more
While waiting for the next Saga volume to come out I thought to check out another series from Brian K. Vaughan. I enjoyed it but I don't think it is as good as the other. It was weird with different strange creatures and an attractive 80' vibe. I might continue with the series but i am in no rush to do so.
This is even stranger than Stranger Things.
And definitely stranger than the Saga comic book series, from the same author shall I add. Those of you who have read that series know that the world-building is complex and the characters are many, and still, it’s easy to follow and make connections.
But Paper Girls is a whole other story. From what I understood, there are four girls involved in some kind of discovery that has altered the planet Earth. Adults and kids are being kidnapped—relocated?? Ki ...more
Heh, I thought this novel was awesome! I felt like I fell down the rabbit hole on this one 😄
It doesn't have a lot of great reviews but it was good enough for me. I loved all of the old school stuff, the graphics, Halloween night, crazy time travelers<--- or were they? Who knows at this point!
Look forward to reading more.
To be continued....

This was pretty weird, so naturally I loved it.
The art and color palette were super appealing, and I'm left feeling slightly confused which I'm actually OK with in this situation. I want more.
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a copy for review.

Boy, this one had A LOT of stuff going on. Buckle up, kids, and I’ll
take you on a crazy acid tripexplain things . . . sort of.
Our story begins in the wee hours of Halloween when noob Erin is being accosted by local hooligan Freddie Krueger while attempting to complete her paper route. Luckily for Erin, the other paper girls have already hit the streets and appear just in time to save the day. Not so lucky is the first impression pres ...more
congratulations! semifinalist in goodreads' best graphic novels & comics category 2016!
three stars with room to grow.
while impatiently waiting for more installments of saga to come out, i decided to check out this other brian k. vaughan book, because i liked the cover, the synopsis promised me plucky girls, 80's references, and this right here is how you get my attention:
