    It's a world loaded with dangers - both human and inhuman (unhuman?) - and as always, you never know what will happen next. So, great art, sharp dialogue and terrific characters - it's a lot of fun! Read Full Review

    There may not be much progress on the plot side, but this collaboration between creators impresses in every other way. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Mar 4, 2017

    Overall, Paper Girls #12 is a foundational issue for a new arc that doesn't throw us anything particularly new " in fact, it revisits much that we've seen before, from the translation device to the team's recurring separation " but is a fast read with great sequential art that really lands the funny, awkward scenes, as well as Vaughn's characteristic natural, fantastic dialogue and the addition of new characters that promise to move us forward soon. This arc isn't set up to be as good as the previous, at least not yet, but even at its slowest Paper Girls is a hell of a good time. Read Full Review

    This new arc of Paper Girls has a necessary slow burn to help the readers learn more about the two new female characters, and to examine the deeper relationship forming between the girls. Our main characters are stuck in a weird, mysterious world, and Vaughan uses this physical setting to explore the next stages of their adolescent lives. Read Full Review

    In many ways, issue #12 is one of his most complete yet. He advances the narrative through the use of new characters, sheds intriguing new light on some long running mysteries and sets up plenty of unique instances for Cliff Chiang and Matt Wilson to bring to life. Read Full Review
