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 'matu ...more

Bullet Review:

Loved it. L-O-V-E-D I-T. Vaughan can have his hiccups, but I will pretty much read anything he writes.
David Schaafsma
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.

Super-fun read . . . can't wait to catch up, see where this one's going!

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

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

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.

Hmm, crazy stuff going on. I think Erin's on to something. Boo at that cliffhanger though.

Paper delivery girls. Aliens. All good so far.
SO good. I'm still obsessed over the colouring. Urgh. Now, what's next?

I love how cool this is! I love the monsters, the story, the art. I'm one of those ppl who have a hard time with very wordy comics. Their s one is just right!

Though sloppy in execution, going strong in the weird side. Hope it gets better.

Better than the first. Stranger, but more coherent. Love the art. And the answer to the question- when the world goes crazy, who do you trust?

I have been reluctantly but pleasantly been falling in love with this series. The art was a bit crude for my taste but the color choices were always bold and eye grabbing. The story is... fine? I was kinda waiting to see if I was gonna be interested in reading more and then...

...well, that ending sure as heck changed things for me. This series has a Princess Mononoke vibe in that the violence is always a bit shocking because of how little there is.

I have no idea whatsoever what's going on in this comic. But man, it's part of the charm. This issue literally made me read while I was supposed to be sleeping. I knew I'll regret it the next day, but honestly, it's one of those comics that you just can't stop reading. You'll want more and more and... well... more. Love the atmosphere, love the writing and all I want is more!
