girlsPaper Girls: Volume 4 by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang

—–

Finally, we get some answers! Vaughan has been raising more and more questions with each volume, and with Volume 4, we start to see what’s going on. We don’t get all of our questions answered, but we at least start to see some of what is happening behind the scenes.

This is the second time in the series that we see one of the paper girls interacting with her older self, and I hope this isn’t going to be a trend. It was cool and funky and startling the first time it happened, but the second time around, it feels a little stale. Will each of the girls run into her older self at some point in the story? If so, will the whole device grow tired?

I still like what’s happening in this series, so it’s not like I’m going to stop reading based on that one sticking point. I’ve just grown accustomed to Vaughan writing strong, strange, thoughtful stories, so I expect something more than just retreading an old device. I’m just glad we’re starting to get a better understanding of the bigger picture; I vowed at the end of the last collection that if he didn’t start revealing something of the story by now, I’d stop reading.
