Paper Girls, Vol. 1 (Paper Girls #1) Reviews
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
LOOK AT THAT BEAUTY.
SO PLEASING, SO PROMISING.
Mr. Vaughan, I'm afraid you've set the bar way too high after Saga. While Paper Girls certainly stands out in the world of comics, with a vibrant spectacle of colours and rich atmosphere, it definitely isn't the best this man's got to offer.
Other than lack of a smooth-running plot, this story's fallout lay in its dialogue for me. And by that I mean the fact that nearly 20% of it is either in a language we don't understand or some really bad ...more
Small town America, 1988, and it’s the very early morning after Halloween. Four newspaper girls out delivering see black hooded figures skulking around the neighbourhood and discover a flying saucer in a basement. Then everyone disappears like it’s the goldurn Rapture and pterodactyls are appearing in the skies! Did someone say armour-wearing Rastafarians? And look - a flying ball of stuff that makes you relive your entire life! Makes sense to me! Wait, what’s going on again…?

I am always trying to read graphic novels because that is what my students "read" and by read I mean they love looking at the pictures. (I teach high school students with intellectual disabilities).
This book was interesting enough and I chose it for the A Book for All Seasons goodreads' book club. I hope to read the whole series and see what happen to the girls. I would have rated this book higher but there were times in the graphic novel that I felt it jumped around too much and I co ...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....

I was not expecting that. I didn't know what to expect, but an alien invasion with for girls on their early morning paper route, no, I was surprised in a great way. It really does have that Stranger Things feel to it too.
There are all kinds of mysteries here that were barely scratched the surface of. I mean we got so few answer. What in the world is going on. I need the next issue like now. There are good characters and there is plenty of craziness. I am so pulled in and drawn in.
Great story, g ...more
Heh. I'm a full-on idiot.
I (because reading the blurb is for losers!) thought that the title was some kind of catchy metaphorical shit. Like, they were girls whose young emotions were as thin as paper. Or instead of paper dolls they were paper girls. You know, something along those lines.
For some reason, it never occurred to me that this was about a bunch of girls with a paper route. Probably because that one chick on the cover has a cigg dangling from her lips, making me think they were a tad ...more
Err...Ugh and stuff?
Was this really written by the same guy who created Saga? Not that I'm a deliriously hysterical Saga fan or anything (yes, that's another series I read wrong), but I kinda sorta expected more from this because of Brian Vaughan's involvement. What more was I expecting, you ask? Well more maturity, for one. Okay, so the fact that this is called Paper GIRLS as opposed to um, you know, Paper WOMEN, should kinda sorta have clued me in as to the age of the characters. But it didn't ...more
