“So, who are you?”—Boy having his arm pinned by his back by Erin Tieng, in 1958 Cleveland, having traveled back there from someplace else, 1988.
“Still figuring that out”—KJ

“The amount of time we’re given is irrelevant”—Erin

“We’re not only paper girls, we’re. . ."

I was very moved by this concluding volume and a bit of a mess, truthfully, but I know that I would definitely have been reading the comics series Papergirls at sixteen if it had been available and feeling much the same. Okay, my 16 year

A bittersweet ending to a wonderfully beautiful, weird and confusing series

Time travel is not my favorite, and it confuses the bejesus out of me, but I like this band of badass young 1980s papergirls and their many iterations. This collected volume is the conclusion of the “The Battle of the Ages” (it’s a time travelers’ war, y’all). I’m still slightly unsure what transpired, but it’s clearly unique a story of friendship. Above all, I freaking love the artwork and coloring. It’s goddamned beautiful.
Right in the feels. I may have even cried a little at the end.

Truth be told, I came into this with still a lot of questions.


No, I didn’t get all the answers. And considering this is the last volume of this series, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to go into much detail for this review. Pretty much everything I could say about the plot at this point would be a spoiler. And you don’t want to hear that.


What I can say is that I was torn about the way Vaughan un-spaghettied that tangled time-web he had

A fine ending -- if a bit of a whimper -- to a pretty darn good series. I think it will definitely reward a re-reading.

In thinking about Vaughan's many series, I wonder if he has ever truly stuck the ending. Offhand, I can't really recall how any of his books ended. It seems they are most memorable and thrive in the middle, where his characters are established and they interact in interesting ways.

Seriously?! THAT'S the end??

At first I was like aw that's a nice end to the arc, and now shit's really gonna get wild! But nope. This is the End End. To which I say, kindly fuck that.

Real spoilers here.

A great finish to a great series. The wrap up was nicely done. I’m a little sad that it’s over.

4.4 stars - ended kind of hurried. And sad. [Prtf]

The final volume of the incorrigible Paper Girls. Brian K Vaughan whilst writing the supreme series that starts with Saga, Vol. 1 manages to create, write and finish Paper Girls, a 30 part speculative-fiction time travelling drama starring four Paper Girls that at no point have discussions about boys! Yassss BKV!

The final volume really plays with your mind and you have to focus and concentrate to get the story and the genius of it; which I didn't really get, having quite a few months gap between

Beautiful artwork and a fun plot but honestly the conclusion felt very underwhelming after such a strong build up.
To be fair, I spent most of the series confused and maybe reading the whole thing over before finishing it could have clarified some things for me, but I honestly don't think it would have done much. Might revisit this later, but honestly I was kinda let down.

Bullet Review:

The end is definitely bittersweet - also kinda makes me wonder if there was really a point to this whole damned thing. But the world sucks so I’m just gonna hold onto the fond memories of this.
This was such an amazing graphic novel! Loved how we had a happy ending and wondering if we will get more or not??😀👏

Grand finale...sad to see it end...but it was handled well and gave me the closure that I wanted.

Its almost as if the series ended with a satisfied sigh rather than a big bang. Which I am okay with.

Thanks for the adventure, Paper Girls!
I don't know ...this was interesting and the ending was cute but I still feel like I'm not 100% sure what happened. I have always been a bit more unsure about this series than most people seem to be and I think it is one where I would have to reread the whole thing in a few days to really try to piece everything together and see if all the time travel plot pieces 'check out' so to speak. I like the characters and the art is great but I'm just so picky about time travel so that's why I'm still a ...more

this series was so enjoyable, in spite of its shaky start. while it felt confusing at times, and while the amount of plot holes that exist (because of all the time travel stuff) take away from the plot's overall structure, i still loved it. it was queer, it was sci-fi, and it was a great homage to all things eighties. ...more

A strong ending to a phenomenal story!

The artwork and color palette is so distinctive and perfect for this time-bending space adventure about elders and youth and really about friendship.

Kind of heartbreaking and funny, it’s a story I’m glad ended in a way that makes sense.

blew through all six volumes in a day and i honestly loved every second of it. the art and coloring was out of this world, there were so many panels i would stop reading and just take in bc they were breathtaking. i love the details in this story and where it would wind around to, it wasn’t totally what i expected, especially from a timey-wimey plotline, and i like that. i think the only reason why i’m rating this 4 stars instead of 5 is that the ending felt a tiny bit rushed, and i don’t have q ...more

A satisfying conclusion. Loved it!

The fun series goes out not with a bang, but with a "why can't we all just get along" vibe.

I found this concluding part very unsatisfying for some reason. The conflicts got resolved easily and a lot of things that happened still did not make much sense to me. The ending was really disappointing. I loved the artwork a lot but the story was not that great. I especially loved the pages which had panels from four different locations where the girls were. It’s a fun series but is it worth rereading in future? I am not sure since nothing was explained and the plot was pretty underdeveloped.
The ending was predictable but the resolution was not really. I enjoyed this series, perfect to be read together with the other fun time travel novels like The Future of Another Timeline and The Light Brigade. ...more

This was such a great finale to a series that ended up really growing on me. While the beginning definitely wasn't my thing, and it took me a while to actually understand what was going on, I ended up loving this series a whole bunch. I also just looved the colors and art style, especially as they went through all the eras one last time.

A good conclusion to a fun series. This volume was a little confusing. Im envious of the people who will read this series as one, as I think it will make more sense

The end of a fantastic series ... I love the relationships, the art, the intricacies of time travel, and the way the story finally ends. Definitely a series I’m going to revisit again, to watch the development of the four paper girls and their interactions with each other ... and with time!
