    So many looses ends have surfaced in the span of 6 issues, but I know it's all going to come together beautifully. Now, I feel like I need to go watch Back To The Future or something. Time-space continuums are all cool until you really have to think more about them. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Jun 8, 2016

    I have a feeling next issue will be back to the action as we get some idea what the device is for, and what the new Erin's plans are. KJ probably isn't going to show up for a little while longer, but there are plenty of ways we could be surprised on that. This was a good opening issue for the new arc. Read Full Review

    The focus should be on the girls. The twists keep the book grounded and Vaughan certainly gets the benefitof the doubt. I just hope the story doesn't go too off the rails because theactual paper girls have been the highlight of these books and should be the focus, not time travel nonsense. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jun 7, 2016

    Will Paper Girls be about their survival? Getting back to their own time? Effects to the time continuum, their implications, and what it all means? What kind of story will Paper Girls be? A cheap time-travelling gimmick or a mind-jarring look into the future through the eyes of our four leads? We're going to find out soon, and I look forward to the payoff of trusting our writer with offering readers such little information. In the meantime, the characters are enough to keep me invested.

    'Paper Girls' is back and I want answers! Unfortunately, the mystery only deepens as the girls are thrust through space and time leading to more unanswered questions. Yet, this new arc is irresistibly engaging and funny. It might work better as a trade but you can't go wrong with Vaughan, Chiang, and Wilson on a title. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 2, 2016

    Visually the tag team of Cliff Chiang and Matt Wilson remains on point, Wilson's somber palette balanced well against Chiang's excellently realized setting. At times they get to cut loose with out there designs and brilliant colors, but as of now the real fun, and mystery, appears saved for next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 6, 2016

    After an incredibly strong first story arc, "Paper Girls" #6 feels very slow-going. The final pages start to turn up the excitement, but -- if I was a new reader starting out on this second story arc -- I'm not certain I would see what everyone else was talking about. Hopefully, the next issue will be back up to full speed again, but -- while "Paper Girls" #6 sure looks great -- the story just isn't up to the high standards of the previous issues.

    A disappointing return to Paper Girls. Somebody call Doc Brown, I want to go back to 1988. Read Full Review
