    --Time Magazine cover, January 18, 1999

    Our three favorite girls from 1988 are still in the future in this one. And it is a blast. And occasionally awkward, and sometimes moving. Paper Girls is a sci fi time travel comic series, folks, so you must expect things that come with the genre; for instance, one of the girls traveling 12 years into the future, Tiffany, meets her future husband. . . and self). So, if you have a chance to save the weird guy doing ‘shrooms that you are destined to be with, would you do it?

    “Charlotte, meet Tiffany. Both of them.”

    Ha! Good, right!? [oh, don’t be mad about a little ol’ spoiler here; this is a time traveler story involving three girls! What did you expect they would find in the future, just self-driving cars!? Have you never seen Peggy Sue Gets Married (1986) or Back to the Future?! (1985)]

    If you are future Tiffany, you get fun questions like this from your younger self about how to manage a crisis: “But what would you have done in 1988?”

    There’s a cute bit in here about a cartoonist—the above-referenced Charlotte, who places clues about time travel in her strips. “Frankie Tomatah” is the name of a comic strip, and our protagonists just have to go visit said cartoonist who created the strip to see if they can get help moving back to 1988.

    Eighties references as usual abound, and are sprinkled throughout this goofy ice cream plot: “Tactical nukes”? 12 Monkeys? The Pontiac Fiero?

    And the cartoonist tells them:

    “Come with me if you want to live.”

    [Oh, don’t TELL me you have to GOOGLE this?! What has happened to your memory? Stolen by an evil spirit?! By Arnold himself?]

    You also get for your money in this volume battling ‘bots, that wacky sci fi dimension of the story that continues to crazy-up the wider story of three paper girls confronting their futures.

    But it’s not all giggles. We get to compare what eighties worries were like compared to our present (or other new century) concerns, such as 9/11 or Oklahoma City. The series makes it clear that nothing less than the future of human civilization is at stake as we face the future, and not just—as important as this obviously is--future mates.

    I saw a couple critical Goodreads reviews and have to say: You don’t like this because it is over the top??! That’s the POINT of eighties sci fi time travel entertainment, darlin’! Get over it, relax, and just have fun. You’ll get killer ‘bots AND see how two of these adorable eighties friends deal with revelations of their friend’s sexual identity. Thrills AND tears!

    And the neon colors! Matt Wilson has made his place in history with this distinctive coloring, no question. I wavered in my commitment to this series by rating volume three only three stars. I’m back, waaaaay back, to 1988! Or wait, 2000, or. . .

    Things are beginning to click into place within this comic and I am really enjoying it. I love how bad-ass each girl is and I like how different they all are. I think the story is really cool and I love the illustrations and the colours. I'm really looking forward to the next issue but I'm sad I will have to wait so long! I would definitely recommend this. It may be a bit confusing at the start, but once you get to vol 2 or 3, it is so worth it!

    The girls are back!

    I love the time travel and the Y2K storyline. It has some funny Y2K headline news quotes from 1999. If you're old enough to remember the fear back then, you'll get a kick out of the quotes. I don’t ruin it for anyone who’s planning to read this, but here’s a quote that’s more recent.

    We get to see Tiffany in the future and meet her husband, plus meet some new characters, and find out something about KJ that we already suspected from a previous volume. Mac is still my favorite with her smart ass comments. I love this series, but the graphic novels always end too quickly for me.

  • Donovan

    While sometimes difficult to follow with its constantly changing cast and setting, the dynamic of chaos theory makes sense in a story of warring time travelers. Meanwhile there’s “some” character development, and bounds of coming-of-age, 2000s nostalgia, and sci-fi grandiloquence. Part of the appeal is to know where this is even going, ending on yet another cliff hanger.

    things actually make sense in this volume!

    review to come!

  • ✩ Ashley ✩ {on hiatus}

    I’m really happy that I read Vol. 4 immediately after finishing Vol. 3 as there are a lot of plot details that are starting to come together. I’m completely stoked to be on this ride with Erin, Tiffany, Mac, and KJ... bring it on

    I know that I’ll probably re-read the entire series once it’s finished because the creators have done an amazing job hiding clues throughout. I adore the characters, the plot, the graphics and coloring, and especiall

    I know that I’ll probably re-read the entire series once it’s finished because the creators have done an amazing job hiding clues throughout. I adore the characters, the plot, the graphics and coloring, and especially the cryptography! ♡

    I’ll be certain to keep the cipher handy even though I’m starting to be able to just

    the cryptic language... btw, can you let me know if anyone cracked the prehistoric language that Wari is speaking in Vol. 3? Sweet, thanks.

  • Kate (GirlReading)

    This series is wild. I have no idea what’s going on half the time but I kinda just don’t care. It’s utterly bizarre, filled with badass girls and a plot that’s here, there and everywhere. The art style is gorgeous and it’s always so much fun to read. I feel at though things slowly started to come together in this volume but I’m still waiting for a moment of total clarity. It’s definitely not without its faults but overall, I’m loving this series and am consistently left wanting more.

  • Aya Hamza

    I really enjoyed this volume!

    Things finally begin to make sense.

    We get some explanations, and a new character which I liked and wish to read more about.

    I wish I can read the next one... I HATE waiting for unfinished series. 💔
