Can anyone escape fate? That’s what Mac and her fellow newspaper delivery girls must discover as they escape the year 2000 and travel to the distant future. Plus, the truth behind the mysterious “old-timers” is finally revealed.

So, I’m officially caught up on another one of Vaughan’s series, and I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with myself now. Overall, I definitely prefer Saga over Paper Girls, but this was a really fun series to read. One thing I’ll say about it, in general, is that I felt that the quality of it was all over the place. It’s not a bad series by any means, but, to me at least, volumes 2 and 4 were far better than volumes 1, 3, and 5.

One thing I liked in this volume was the reveal about Wari and Jahpo. I was waiting to find out more about them and Vaughan definitely delivered! The cliffhanger that ended this volume, though… when exactly am I getting volume 6 and how am I supposed to wait?

    Nice review! I’ve followed your reviews for Paper Girls, and I don’t think I’ll be continuing with the series. I mean, I liked Vol 1 but I wasn’t racing to pick up the next one afterwards. Maybe one day! I love Brian K Vaughan but Saga is my #1 lol

    Seeing all your reviews for this series definitely made me want to pick it up! I went by my library recently, and they had the first two volumes, and I just couldn’t resist picking them up! I hope I like them as you’re not the only reviewer who says not all the volumes are equally as great.
