Paper Girls, Vol. 2 (Paper Girls #2) Reviews
The story is moving super-fast. I love that about it. :) From doppelgangers to gigantic maggots, riding dragons, to portals through folded space, we're firmly in a very different SF than what I'm used to.
And I love it.
Case in point: Multiple worlds theory is crap. There's only one time, one world, but it can be rewritten. Repeatedly. Chaotically. Catastrophically.
And it's a war between the adults and the kids. Only, no one seems to have their s*** together and the battle is raging on for 63k ye ...more
This continues to be very strange but very enjoyable! I find that when I read time travel books I get reeeeally disoriented because I hate how many loopholes arise and all the scientific timey wimey stuff just loses me really fast, but this managed to keep my interest most of the time, and I understanded most of it!
The art continues to be wonderful and I love Erin as a main character. (She has anxiety!! Yes!!!!) There were still a lot of really cool references and I wanted to crey when ...more
What is Past is Epilogue
"When are we?"
Well, I know even less what is going on than I did at the end of the first volume. But sometimes when you are on a rollercoaster going over the crest of that hill you just put your hands in the air and go with it. This is something like ET with badass girls and pterodactyls and iPhones and smart cars and esperanto. It began in 1988 in Cleveland with four "papergirls" (instead of paperboys!), but we are now in 2016. And in one thread, somewhere much farther i ...more
Paper girls goes all Back to the Future 2 as they wind up in 2016. They soon realize KJ is missing and that becomes the focus of this volume. Erin meets up with her future self and is all "Woah, what happened? I'm a loser" Then a third Erin shows up in a space suit, but it's all good, because we find out her deal before the end of the book. The Paper Girls also battle some giant maggots and figure out how to get to KJ.
This book while bringing up some new questions is more focused and easier to f ...more
WOW! I am so glad I gave this comic series one more chance to impress me because I loved this volume! It was SO much better than Volume 1 and now I'm really happy that I found another comic series that I really like!
I thought the first volume was really confusing and bland (I gave it 2 stars!) but this comic has stepped its game up! Volume 1 was all about setting the story up but in my opinion it didn't do a great job of reeling me in. Volume 2 completely reeled me in. It's exciting, mysterious ...more
What a mess.
I'm in the minority here, because I thought this volume was even worse that the first one, and the first wasn't good to begin with.
So the time-fuckery continues, three girls out of four get straight outta the eighties and into 2016, Erin immediately and conveniently meets her future self, and another young clone-Erin from another future appears, too. There are also some giant tardigrades from the future fighting each other for no reason, an Apple product from — you guessed it! — the ...more
Three or four questions answered from volume 1, approximately eleventeen more added or left unanswered, give or take. But... I like it? Art good. Colors ooh pretty. Girls cool.
