Loved the unusual sci-fi setting. Strong story and characters. Read it in Barnes and Nobel but bought the book - 1 which has vol 1 - 10. Hopefully rest of the book is as good as the first volume. ( )

This is an interesting story about a group of girls in the late 1980s, figuring out who they want to be while also dealing with some spooky mysteries. It's an intriguing story. It also does a good job of portraying some of the uglier parts of 1980s social attitudes without condoning them. The art is lovely and evocative. ( )

Not at all what I imagined. I'm very curious how the MC seems to know everything from her dreams and what happens in the future. ( )

Paper Girls is set in 1988, Ohio and involves Erin, a newspaper delivery girl who on Halloween night meets up with three other paper girls, Mac, Tiffany, and KJ when she runs into trouble with some teenagers. They decided to split up into twos using Tiffany's walkie talkies to keep in touch with. Erin goes with the legendary Mac, one of the first paper girls.

Tiffany and KJ get their walkie talkie stolen by some really weird guys wrapped up in cloth. All four of them go on the hunt for them since the walkie talkie cost so much and means a lot to Tiffany. On their hunt they find in a building a mysterious machine. They go outside and have a run in with those guys and they drop a slim disk like object with an apple on it that looks like the apple that the new computer at school has on it.

When they go over to Mac's place to get the gun they run into Mac's stepmother who tells her that her dad just disappeared into thin air. They themselves had seen a kid from school be in the streets one minute and gone the next. Her stepmother tries to take the gun to kill herself and Mac wrestles her with it, but the gun goes off shooting someone.

On the way to the hospital, a man in a suit of armor stops them and says he can help. Then the cloth-bound people show up and insist that they are the ones who can truly help. Who should they trust? And what is happening to their world? Can a group of paper girls save it? These four just might be able to. This was a great comic showed the power and smarts of four young teenage girls during the time of some great mysterious threat to the earth. I highly recommend reading this book. ( )
