Paper Girls, Volume 6: 10/24/19

Paper Girls, Volume 6

Paper Girls, Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan is the conclusion of the Paper Girls comic. The four girls, shown on the cover as adults, must work together with their future selves across different chunks in time to save the universe and get home.

My favorite portion of this volume comes in the middle where the panels are long strips of color coded scenes. Each girl is in their own piece of time and are trying to get out of their situation. Their dialog comes together in a decoupage to tell a larger story.

Like so many time travel stories, the characters early on learn they can redo things and to them it seems as if they've only reset things a few times. At the end, it's invariably revealed that they have been stuck in the same time loop for hundreds if not thousands of times. That is the case here.

Like Roger and Dodger in Middlegame by Seanan McGuire (2019), the girls push through to the end by the belief that this time they will transcend the time loop.

Five stars
