“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”—Erin

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

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

Okay, I’m a little bit of a mess here. And when I tell you I am crying as I type this, and also tell you I am a man in his seventh decade I invite you not to stereotype me or other people of my age, as hopefully you will get to my age

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

A satisfying conclusion. Loved it!

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.

An unexpected down to earth finale, along with heavy plot and one of the most weird and unique issues you'll ever read.

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 ...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.

I feel like this was the ending we deserved, but I'm going to let you all judge whether or not it's the one you wanted. I really enjoyed this volume as it tied up all the ends I needed it to. I also feel like my brain was wrung through a pasta machine now that I'm on the other end. - That's one of the things I loved about this series though: it asked a lot of us just to keep up and not lose track of any of the threads. There was a lot of time jumping and new (and old) characters popping in and ...more

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

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

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THIS SERIES IS OVER!!!!

I will say that I think that I should have gone back and re-read all of them in order before reading this one to remind me of the story in some places because it does weave *everything* together for the final outing and it does explain a few of the continuity things. The artwork and panels are as clever as ever and I thought the ending was sad and bittersweet but ultimately made sense. Basically this is an exceptional graphic novel series and I can't

Brian Vaughan's other big comic of the moment doesn't seem to have hit quite as big as Saga – but then, what does? Still, it gets to finish when it was supposed to, which has to count as a success. Perhaps the problem was that the crosstime adventures of a group of small-town newspaper deliverers from the eighties isn't a simple hook to match 'Romeo & Juliet – in space!'. Although now we're at the end, it becomes clear quite how much this was another anti-war comic, and indeed another love ...more

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

Nice.

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.

After all that build up the ending was a tad disappointing. Still, it was a fun ride while it lasted.

Ties up the series nicely. As a whole a nice series to recommend to friends who want to read more Graphic Novels.

Although there’s still some confusion and weirdness, I enjoyed reading this final volume very much. The way issue #28 was executed reminded me of Andreas’ “Arq”, another comic book series that takes place in different time zones and dimensions. Issue #30 presents the perfect ending. To Erin, Mac, Tiff & KJ : it was a hell of a paper round !

This is one of the most satisfying and beautifully orchestrated endings to a long-form comic that I have read. One can easily imagine that Paper Girls’ story of lasting friendship, the perils of nostalgia, and the compromises of adulthood is as much about the team of four adult men who created this comic as it is about the four 12-year-old girls who are its subject.

These people (whether the comic’s creators or the paper girls) briefly came together to make something beautiful happen, only then

And there you have it. That's the end of that saga. No, wait, wrong book.

Anyway.

I liked the ending. It's very personal, and strips away all the time travel madness in favour of the four girls and their role in each other's lives. It's not a big event, or a huge explosion of an ending. It's just...nice. And kinda hopeful.

In fact, a lot of the time travel stuff becomes a bit redundant here. There's a lot of paradoxes and ideas about sending messages across time and space, but like the girls

I didn't quite get the feels for this volume like I did for some previous ones, but that was probably more about my own mood at the time than the book itself. The same high quality characterization, art and visual design persists in this final book. I suppose that all of your lingering time-travel questions are answered, ish? It calls for a series re-read, I think, to put that all to rest.

The penultimate single issue contained herein adopts an interesting four-way split screen effect that is
