    so, i’m enjoying this series, inasmuch as i am still intrigued by what the heck is happening, but this issue is just more questions with no resolution to previous questions and no real indication that the story is heading in a direction where we can gather our breaths and start making progress towards anything resembling a cohesive storyline. this issue is a mix of past, present, and “other” where harsh truths are spoke, albeit in bewildering terms the magic of womanhood descends dissatisfactio so, i’m enjoying this series, inasmuch as i am still intrigued by what the heck is happening, but this issue is just more questions with no resolution to previous questions and no real indication that the story is heading in a direction where we can gather our breaths and start making progress towards anything resembling a cohesive storyline. this issue is a mix of past, present, and “other” where harsh truths are spoke, albeit in bewildering terms the magic of womanhood descends dissatisfaction with women’s representation in comic strips is expressed and subtext swells also, poo also-also, kj faces anti-semitism and misogyny woe betide the sexist astronaut…it’s another volume with many 80’s references (i will miss you forever, mcdlt!!) , but for the most part, it just brings new dangers to the girls without giving us much to cling to.i will stick with it, but i'm gonna need a little more meat to go with all this silverware.********************************************3? 3.5? imma think on this for a while. i still have no idea where this series is heading...review to come...come to my blog!

And then there’s the 12 year old girl stuff: periods, girl on girl kissing (is this just experimentation, or sexual identity work?), killing monsters; you know, the usual. An action-oriented volume, with no clear progress to any kind of resolution, with crazier and crazier situations. This is my least favorite volume, I’m a little frustrated we aren’t moving toward something truly meaningful yet, but it’s still way fun, and Chiang’s drawing and Matt Wilson’s colors, these work with Vaughn's playful vibe to make this so eighties special.

    No joke, Paper Girls is my all time favorite on-going series. It's just crazy fun zany fantasy. And the thing is, Vaughan is building to a pretty good mystery. I really wanna know where this is going. And I'm fascinated by the development that's happening with the characters. The artwork is industry best. Cliff Chiang's illustrations are bold and iconic, and paired with Matt Wilson's eye-watering colors, this is top notch. Hell, I'd read this comic just for the artwork. I'm right.

    I honestly think the author might be pulling ideas out of a hat instead of having a coherent plan for where the plot will go. Last issue sealed it for me—I'm abandoning this series. I just don't know what it's trying to be anymore and I'm either confused or annoyed after each issue.Individual issue reviews: #11 | #12 | #13 | #14 | #15Total review score: 1.8

    Wow. So much wilder than the first volume, although the second comes close.How about we skip along to the part where we're 13k in the past and the creator of time travel and Erin's DISTANT ancestor (maybe) catches all these girls in a caveman-esq borrowed technological romp with a slowly evolving and unfolding revelation about the nature of the 4th dimension?Yup.This is just my speed.

It's gonna be HARD to beat.

I adore the artwork, the characters and the utterly bizarre plot line, that doesn't always make sense or seem to be going anywhere but for some reason that's totally okay?! I had a few issues with this volume regarding some of the dialogue, which is something I'd definitely recommend being wary of before going into it. It was unnecessarily problematic at times, although some of these things were called out on the page. (tw for ableist and anti antisemitic language and discussion of rape.) One thing I did thing was cool was Kaje starting her period on page. Normalising period blood etc is a pretty cool thing to have on page. Mac saying Kaje was acting 'insane' because of it wasn't great but shout out to Kaje for shutting her down. "should you really be doing that, KJ? In your, you know... condition?""I got my period, not the plague."With all that being said, overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this and I am now anxiously awaiting the next volume. Bring on vol. 4 and 2018!

    Another great volume! If this series keeps turning out awesome volumes like this one, this could turn into another one of my favourite comic series. I love the story, the writing, the girls, the illustrations and the colours. I still can't believe I went from rating the first volume 2 stars to rating the second and third volumes 4 stars. I'm really impressed with this and I can't wait for the next one! I would definitely recommend this.

    This one is the volume which is on the shortlist for #BooktubeSFF 2018 and so I just read through the first two volumes so I could move on to this one.

The plot is making more of a cohesive story by this point (we know about the time travelling at least) but we still have no real answers, and the characters are frustrating to follow. I have to say I can't see myself continuing with the series, 2*s for this one.

I can completely understand why some people don't like this series and at times it strikes me that Vaughan is literally making the plot up as he goes along. I think for me this volume lacked excitement and there weren't as many twists as I would have liked. The artwork was still top-notch (as always) and the colouring was beautiful but plot-wise, Paper Girls 3 left me feeling a bit cold.

    Now the girls have entered prehistoric caveman times. I love the 80's references, especially when they ripped on Cathy. I think everyone feels the same way about that terrible comic strip. Vaughan does tie up one little timey-wimey thing with the field hockey stick. We also meet the inventor of time travel. Still loving the series and looking forward to see where the Paper girls are headed next.

    This series continues to grip me. Admittedly, it gets weirder and weirder, and it's hard to remember that the girls were actually paper delivery girls in the beginning. But it has an amazing story unfolding, and slowly we start getting clues as to what might have happened between the original timeline of the girls and the future timeline and its inhabitants which they get into contact with.As I said before, if you know what a demogorgon is and wish you had one as a pet, get the books right now.

    Bullet Review:I'm of two minds about this:1) I love it. The same way I loved "Ready Player One" with its cheesy 80's nostalgia vibe, I love this. I can't wait to see what happens next.2) I don't think Vaughan even knows what's happening next, and this will be a trainwreck of the likes of LOST.I kinda need to read this from the beginning, because I can barely even remember where this began. But I'm going to ride out the first mind as long as I can, enjoying the good vibes while I have the chance.

    3.5 stars.This volume is my favorite so far, but not the best thing I have ever read.This was quite dark, but I am still confused about certain things that happened.Also, it had a bit of possible romantic relationship which is nice & didn't expect.

Sigue siendo muy peculiar y extraña, pero, de cierta forma, eso la hace aun mas encantadora. Ademas, el arte sigue siendo muy cool. En cuanto a las chicas, las adoro. Nuevamente no tengo una favorita porque siento que todas son demasiado geniales e interesantes. Las interacciones que hay entre ellas es muy natural y realista. Tienen momentos divertidos, dramáticos y de suspenso. Sin embargo, siempre saben como salirse con la suya.Sin dudas, seguiré con este comic.

    I swear, this series just keeps getting better by leaps and bounds with every single installment. At this point, I don’t think the authors could produce something I won’t fall completely in love with. This is by far my favourite out of the series so far, I really and truly loved everything about it and I’m dying to see where the series goes next! And not to mention the freaking bloody phenomenal illustrations, they keep getting more stunning with each issue!

    While the exact plot of Paper Girls remains inscrutable, three arcs is enough to get a handle on what the series does and how it feels. What it does, so far at least, is have its single volumes follow a simple structure within an overall architecture we're only seeing in glimpses. How it feels is awesome.So this third volume does the same things the first two did.

What it does, so far at least, is have its single volumes follow a simple structure within an overall architecture we're only seeing in glimpses. How it feels is awesome.So this third volume does the same things the first two did. The girls arrive in a new setting and figure out its rules: when it is, who they can trust, who they maybe can't, and what the stakes are. As they uncover the story, it comes to a boil, and at the climax they (and we) go somewhen else. This is a tried-and-true formula for time-travel series - it's hard to think of one that doesn't employ it somehow. Where Paper Girls is clever is in disguising that repeating structure within a more complicated wider story, which Vaughan and Chiang present with a minimum of compromises: no reliable narrators, no glossaries of slang, no roadmap. Our narrative window is wider than the girls', but not by much. The overall impression is chaotic, like a story which has been snipped up and rearranged, Burroughs-style.So structurally, what we have is the rock-solid micro-structure of Doctor Who within the much riskier, looser macro-structure of (say) Lost, where we're being asked to trust that the creators have a plan. Vaughan's best storytelling trick - which infuriates some of the readers - is to be so imaginative, and so alive to the possibility that turning a comics page can make you gasp or laugh at the audacity of what you're seeing, that Paper Girls feels arbitrary and confusing and thrilling even when we'll probably all look back later and be able to figure out exactly what was going on.This is not, as it happens, entirely dissimilar to being 12 years old, which is part of why Paper Girls works on an emotional and aesthetic level as well as being an enjoyable puzzle-box. Vaughan isn't always the subtlest of character writers, but he's superb at making you want to read more about the four leads and their dynamic, to the point where their constant separations are as painful for readers as for characters. And he and Cliff Chiang (whose command of the girls' expressions, style and body language is exquisite) have channeled the aesthetic of how pop culture was when they were 12 - Stephen King books, Spielberg movies, early videogames - to create something which feels like 1988 as often as it comments on it. Somehow it all adds up to the most addictive, but also most satisfying, mainstream comic around right now.

And while he throws in a nice time loop scenario and the possible inventor of time travel shows up as well, this volume doesn’t really answer a lot of questions.I was okay with that in the first volume, because I liked the 80’s setting so much and you gotta give the story some time to develop.But after the really good Paper Girls Vol. 2 I expected some more clarity. And that’s just not happening here. On top of that the prehistoric setting is just not my cuppa.I’m somewhat invested in those characters now. And as relationships are developing, I was still entertained.But this just doesn’t compare favorably to Saga Vol. 7 which was also written by Vaughan and is nominated for the Hugos as well. I would be very surprised if Paper Girls Vol. 3 takes home the award.On the plus side, the ending promises a fourth volume that will be more to my liking again.____________________________ 2018 Hugo Awards Finalists Best Novel• The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi (Tor)• New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson (Orbit)• Provenance by Ann Leckie (Orbit)• Raven Stratagem by Yoon Ha Lee (Solaris)• Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty (Orbit)• The Stone Sky by N.K.

Unfortunately we still don’t get many clear answers here, but the story doesn’t prompt any new questions in this volume, so I personally was fine with the lack of answers because at this point it just feels like I’m along for the ride with the characters. Also this one does give a more solid suggestion of what to expect throughout the series. Two things are becoming pretty clear here: 1) Each volume appears to take place in a different time zone, I think this can be really promising for an epic conclusion when everything starts falling together. 2) I think it is pretty clear that all of the characters we meet will end up being important at some point in the story. I was worried after volume 2, that we would be meeting a lot of throwaway characters throughout the volumes, but vol 3 left me with the impression that we will see them again. Volume 3 also has a lot of things that seem pretty promising for the rest of the series, and I’m excited to continue on with the series when it is released, not just because of the plot but also because of the characters! So that’s nice. I’m hoping that there is some potential for a nice slow burn romance, as well as some room to watch a character who has a lot of prejudice learn to see past these things. I still think this series can do a lot I just hope it hurries up and does some of it before I get bored/tired of waiting. Fingers crossed for some big moves in the next volume!!

There's a young woman and her baby running from the baby's 3 fathers who are these muscled mud men of DOOOOOM. Or something.Plus! There's a woman from the way future stopping by accidentally with her time travel machine.And there's a floating pyramid that sends up fireworks/pollen to lure unsuspecting teenage girls to it.And...I don't even know.I do know, though, that this one ended abruptly, I have no idea what's going on, and I can't wait to read the next one.

It's a little frustrating to get 5 issues that don't really enhance the mystery very much, but it's BKV being BKV at his best, so who cares?Plus, Cliff Chiang's art + Matt Wilson's colours = perfection. So gorgeous.
