I feel i remember the scene where alice tries to kill herself with the gun from a friend's review , must have been years, weird what our minds remember and forget.
I am not really reading good these days.
So men disappear, and men freeze, is it the same for the women, we need some equality here, but honestly i would rather just disappear.

This series is a very, very weird one. I kind of like it and kind of think it's a bit too bonkers for me because it is set in an 80s period setting and we follow a group of female paper girls as they do their rounds (or try to) in the midst of what appears to be a crazy monster apocalypse! The story is easily told and the drawing is nice with good colouring, but I honestly have no real idea where this is going and although the lead characters are supposedly about 12-15 they seem a lot more 'mature' in terms of language and actions than they maybe should. I am liking it every time I read an issue, but then it's a bit forgettable... might give it another issue and see if it fully grabs me, otherwise I shall probably give up on this one for now.

3*s overall

Tampoco he entendido nada pero también me ha encantado. Y como sigan con los cliffhangers al final de cada número no voy a parar hasta que no termine de leer todos.

Paper girls (not paper boys, as in boys who used to be hired to deliver papers, younguns), the nineties, aliens, Stand by Me for girls, maybe a bit of another kind of Lucas tribute than Saga for Vaughn. We're getting to know the characters better, getting deeper into it. How is I can be simultaneously reading four ongoing series by one guy?! What is wrong with me? How did I get to this place? (Saga, We Stand Guard, Paper Girls and Private Eye?) Crazy. And crazy good.

This issue was super short, and I wished it had more of a story to it than random artwork. What a way to leave a single issue on a cliffhanger!

This one was much better than the last, though it helps I now know I don't have a clue what I'm expecting.

Better than the first one. It bugs me that all the creators are men. I love BKV though.

Like I said, I'm not a big fan of Stranger Things, but this comic is quite weird on its own. I don't like not knowing what it is about. Hope it gets better.

Solo he leído dos números, pero por ahora no puedo decir nada malo de Paper Girls. Deseando leer la colección entera.

A Halloween invasion, and four 12-year-old paper delivery girls get caught in the action. Weird and Fun.

Muahahaha okay so I only picked this up and blew threw it in like 30 minutes so I could complete my Goodreads challenge. I'm actually halfway through the Molly Crabapple autobio "Drawing Blood," but there's no way I'm finishing that before we hit 2017.

I think the premise of Paper Girls is fascinating, but the story hasn't progressed enough for me to really figure out what's going on/connect with the characters much. I like the dynamics between the two girls and older/younger Erin in this volume. But to be completely honest, I'm really just here for Matt Wilson's beautiful, evocative, moody neon-tinged electric-eat-your-heart-out colors. It really does feel like a "feminist Stranger Things," and that's not a bad thing at all.

It's original, that's for sure. I love the line work and colours, and the story is pretty unexpected and creative. Mac, in particular, has potential to become a really interesting character. As interesting as it is, and as much as I want to know what's going on, I'm going to put this aside until the trade paperback comes out so I can binge-read it.

This one was better then the first one. It had a bit more action going on, a little mystery. It had a little bit of suspense. I thought it ended too quickly, and that's a big sign I'm enjoying it. The art style is obviously the same, and like I said for the first one I don't really like it but the content is good.
