This was a complete cover enticement & I had to know what all the hype was about. I liked the artistic style & color. The story took a little longer to enjoy. I was very confused for a good portion of the volume, probably just as lost as the Paper Girls. By the end I was warming to the characters & curious about the plot, especially when I hit the last page. I'm going to be continuing on to the next volume just to see what it has in store.

After binging the phenomenal new tv adaptation, I had to seek out the source material! It‘s the early hours after Halloween 1988–AKA Hell Day for Stony Stream‘s 4 paper delivery girls, who don‘t just encounter the annoying older teens they expect but warring time travelers, existential danger, and a trip to the future! The main characters are so lovable and well written—recommended for fans of Stranger Things for the 80s setting and sci-fi focus!

phantomx I really enjoyed Paper Girls. Can't remember how I ended up reading the entire series(maybe the library) but it was good 2mo
underground_bks @phantomx definitely interested in continuing! I borrowed these from a friend—I may splurge on the complete edition 2mo

I don‘t read a lot of comics but, after watching the first few episodes of the tv adaptation and really enjoying it, I wanted to give them a try. I‘m glad I did! I‘ve only read the first installment but I just know I‘m going to like the rest. The casting is spot on with the drawings (at least the main girls) and I actually enjoyed seeing the differences from the show as must as the similarities. Really good concept. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

ChaoticMissAdventures I love Brian K Vaughn, he does brilliant things! 2mo
candc320 @ChaoticMissAdventures I haven‘t seen/read anything else he‘s done but I‘ll definitely check it out! 2mo

Library haul!! I don‘t typically read graphic novels but I watched the first few episodes of the show version of Paper Girls and really liked it, so I thought why not!

This was fine. Its me, not the GN. YA time travel paper delivery girls plus the graphic novel genre, just not my jam. (I may try the adaptation anyway, as I bet I‘ll like it more in that medium.)

Thanks for the loan @Eyelit . I made it about halfway through the second book, but I don‘t think I‘ll finish them.

Librariana I'm re-reading these atm. The first time around, I only recall getting through vol. 3 and waiting on the others. I finished vol. 4 recently and have moved on to the 5th. I remember feeling a lot more... nostalgic about them the first time around. This time, I can't say I feel the same as I'm getting lost in the time travel details/semantics. Hubby and I did finish watching the 1st season on Sunday. 2mo
Eyelit Sorry it wasn‘t your cup of tea! I do think you might like the show more 🙂 2mo
Soubhiville @Eyelit I‘ve heard so many say they loved them! It was worth a try. I‘ll watch the show next time Maelstrom travels. 2mo

Totally had a Stranger Things feel. Curious to see where the story goes. Once I figured out that this was by the same author who wrote Saga, I could totally aspects of that story here too.

Paper Girls…Sandman…and let‘s not forget Ms. Marvel. It‘s a great time to be a fan of comics! Especially if you enjoy seeing how they are reinterpreted for the small (or large) screen.

A responsible #bookhaul from a weekend getaway. Not pictured are a few more comics, but I‘m very excited to have the complete Paper Girls, which I‘ve seen such good things about here. Kindred was on my #NYWD21 list, and my hubs picked up The Memory Police, which I‘m also interested in reading.

I was intrigued by the premise of this graphic novel: a group of paper girls stumble upon a mystery of sci-fi epic proportions. I thought it was okay, but nothing super exciting. I think this first volume had to do a lot of set up and by the end seemed to get a lot of the basics explained. I'll read the next volume in the hopes that the story will pick up more finally.

Gorgeously drawn, very weird, I loved this graphic novel and really want to continue the series. On Halloween night a group of paper girls stumble across what appears to be a time traveling alien invasion. There are prophetic dreams, spaceships, dinosaurs, storm troopers stealing your walkie talkies... there‘s A Lot.

My first graphic novel. I liked the illustrations and the multiple timeline story. I will definitely be continuing with the story if only because there was a lot going on in this first volume and I'm not sure I grasped the entire arc and storyline. If you enjoy action packed fast paced Sci Fi this is for you.

Sorry for the lack of updates! Yesterday was a very busy day and I tried to use whatever time I could squeeze in to get as much reading done as I could. So far I‘m at almost 17 hours which isn‘t too bad. I might actually make it to 24 by midnight!

I finished 2 graphic novels yesterday and I‘m most of the way through #triptychbuddyread along with a couple others I‘m hoping to finish today.

I haven‘t read too many graphic novels, so my review may be slightly skewed because of this. The art work and colors were intriguing and wonderful, but the story was kind of hard to follow. Despite that, I‘m probably going to put the second volume on request from the library because I want to see what happens next. Maybe just to figure it out? 🤪

I was drawn to this simply because of its cover and was surprised by how sci-fi it was. A fun, fast story that somehow gets away with loads of strage plot twists. A must read for all #strangerthings fans!

I‘m actually reading book one, which has more than just the first volume, but I paused at the end of where volume 1 is. Who wants to read 2 books and only get credit for 1? I loved this. Love the 80s vibe, love the drawing, and love that I don‘t have a single thing figured out about the story yet! On to volume 2! Reading this via #hoopla on my iPad

AlizaApp I love this series! 4y
rjsthumbelina @AlizaApp I can see why everyone loves it so much now. I have finished the first 2 volumes and am making myself take a break from them so I don't blow through all 5! That's a dangerous thing about reading graphic novels digitally, especially when using hoopla - I can just keep downloading the next one, until I run out! 4y

While, I'm normally not a fan of Sci-Fi, I actually fell in love with this graphic novel and I can't wait to pick up the rest of the volumes.
The illustrations, the colors, the characters, the story line everything about Paper Girls, I loved.
All 4 girls have their own personalities and they are a great team. They are very mature for their age but they are smart, witty and bad-ass.
