I was debating whether or not I should pick this one up, after being disappointed by the last two volumes, but being a completionist, I bought it eventually. And it was good.
THE END IS HERE
In other words, I had to get this anyway, in order to find out what became resolved and how the characters managed to make it to the finish line.
There was a lot more dialogue in this one, which helps the reader get to know the characters more, rather than relying all on the artist to do the writer's job. Their journey's end would mean more because of it.
No spoilers though, so I'll end by saying it was better than a couple earlier volumes. It even gave us a less-cliché ending than most stories these days, which I really appreciated. Let's just hope he ended this so quickly so that he could focus mainly on his magnum opus, SAGA.
Condition of the book is good, had no issues with it. As for the book itself, it concludes the story but leaves you with questions regarding a decent number of things you read from the very start. Some reviews mention it seems as if the creative team wrote themselves to a point where they couldn't figure out a way to tie up all ends, so they leave things to the reader to interpret. The books ends in a way where it feels bitter sweet with what happens, but at the same time at what the characters will do going forward (off book unfortunately haha). Overall the writing is good, art as beautiful as ever, and you get to return to the first setting (that late 80s beginning gets me for some reason haha). I cannot wait for Amazon's live action series based on this, but sad that it has ended. I definitely recommend this series to those that haven't read it, and for those who are thinking of getting this final volume, definitely get it to finish it and interpret the conclusion your way!
At the center of the story are four 12-year old girls whose stories begin in 1988. The best volumes were the middle ones, where they saw (and were often disappointed by) their future selves. The journeys forward and back in time were fine, but not really anything new. The strength of the series was the four main characters, their interactions, and their ever growing friendships. It does feel thematically a bit like Stand By Me, as far as a tale of friendship.
I enjoyed Cliff Chiang's art throughout the series. Mr. Vaughan has been lucky - he's a wonderful writer, but he's been paired with skilled artists on Y:The Last Man, Runaways, Saga, and Paper Girls.
Paper Girls is far and away more layered, more complex, more fantastical, and more mystifying than any pedestrian time travel story. The sheer number of WTF moments was mind blowing and thrilling. Add that to some great (and some queer) girl characters, it was just.... *contented sigh*

This is the final volume, so it's obviously not a jumping on point. New readers should start with volume one.
As with other volumes, this does contain strong language, one or two adult references, and some violence, so it's really just for mature readers.
It collects issues twenty six to thirty of the comic. Issue thirty was a double length finale, so really you get six comics here. There are chapter pages to show where one issue ends and another begins.
After the end of the last book, the girls are scattered. Can they find their way back to each other? And the way home? And can the war be brought to an end? If so, what will be the cost?
The time travel stuff never gets too convoluted, and is pretty clever at points. But the great thing about this volume, and what makes it a good resolution, is that it puts the characters first and foremost. And their friendships. There are good points, some of which could be cliched but are things you should never tire of hearing, about such. There are some panels which are really very eye catching as the art conveys character emotion superbly.
And the finale is great. You really don't want it to end, and to never see these characters again. But all things do end, which is why this does. With a nice final shot.
A really good emotional and nice finale to what's been a great journey with some great characters. A superb read.
Just like "Y: The Last Man" this series started strong and promising only to whimper into a weak ending. In this case perhaps even more weak than Y.
Like JJ. Abrams Vaughan seems to have cool story ideas and then no idea how to resolve them.
This ending was lazy crap.
Makes me worried about Saga.
