Paper Girls, Vol. 1 (Paper Girls #1) Reviews
3.5 terestial ⭐⭐⭐
November 1, 1988….the morning of Hell. Before sunrise, the paper girls are on their bikes armed with the Cleveland Paper out for delivery. Under ordinary circumstances, these girls aren’t to be messed with. Cigarette smoking, hockey sticks at the ready and equipped with flashlights, these bad-ass girls mouth off to the rowdiest street suspects, and almost defy the law…U N T I L the discovery of some alien capsule changes their fateful morning and culminates into a clash with zom ...more
I am starting to get tiny bit worried of Vaughan being a one timer for me as so far I have only enjoyed of his Saga series that is an absolute stunner. That is two out, one in according to my highly messed up records.
Hmmm. I do like the art in Paper Girls because it supports the 80's setting, and the scifi-time travelling theme it seems to be promising in the near future, but awwww, I just did not feel it in my soul. The youngster characterization is extremely overused, there was no surprises l ...more
I was not expecting that. I didn't know what to expect, but an alien invasion with for girls on their early morning paper route, no, I was surprised in a great way. It really does have that Stranger Things feel to it too.
There are all kinds of mysteries here that were barely scratched the surface of. I mean we got so few answer. What in the world is going on. I need the next issue like now. There are good characters and there is plenty of craziness. I am so pulled in and drawn in.
Great story, g ...more
I picked this up in a whim at the library today. I have seen a lot of friends of mine on Instagram reading it so I thought I’d give it a shot.
SO MUCH FUN!!
My only complaint is that the story is a little bit rushed, I’d like some time to let each girl get their own character development backstory or something just so it’s easier to distinguish between a few of the minor character girls. I love the story though! And set in the late 80s and the tough girl and the pop culture references, I was in gr ...more
My favorite series by Vaughan so far is the Marvel Runaways (see Runaways, Vol. 1: Pride and Joy for a good start) series. I like Saga a lot, but it has been uneven for me. I DNF'd Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned series around volume 3.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this. I found it mainly meh. It has potential with the aliens and time travel. I like the 80s vibe. I don't know. Just didn't connect with it. None of the characters stood out to me. Probably won't continue.
I am in two minds about this graphic novel - I really enjoyed the story told and I see great potential for the future of this series, but at the same time the art left me mainly unimpressed.
This is the story of four paper girls who are on their early morning route when weird things start happening. To be perfectly honest, I don't have everything figured out just yet but the little clues scattered throughout this volume have me highly intrigued and looking forward to the next part. And that last ...more
congratulations! semifinalist in goodreads' best graphic novels & comics category 2016!
three stars with room to grow.
while impatiently waiting for more installments of saga to come out, i decided to check out this other brian k. vaughan book, because i liked the cover, the synopsis promised me plucky girls, 80's references, and this right here is how you get my attention:

I didn’t think I could love a comic more than Saga, but Paper Girls proved me wrong. It’s basically Stranger Things with kickass teen girls on bikes and… well, I won’t spoil it but I audibly yelped with joy in the final few pages.
