Paper Girls #5
Cover: Cliff Chiang
Writer: Brian K. Vaughan

Hold on to your hats boys and girls! This is a bumpy ride. When we left off, Heck and …. have taken Erin into their pod to patch her up. It doesn’t take long thanks to their iNsecs (bugs that are “hard to boost”). Things go smoothly until they are fired at by a group of old-timers. The pod lands in the basement where it was found, and Erin is safe. Unfortunately, our guides are no longer with her.
Meanwhile, Mac, KJ, and Tiffany decide to go look for the three. However, an old-timer on a dinosaur stops them. Tiffany takes a stand, and the old-timer surrenders at gunpoint. The girls run off and leaves the old-timer to call on the Grand Father, who decides to take matters into his own hands and “punish” the girls himself.
Mac and her crew make it back to the basement and are there when Erin comes out of the pod. However, the Grand Father has found them and ordered them to come out of the house. Erin mutters something about the Tree of Knowledge, and the house warps in on itself. It thrusts the girls into the future. KJ has gone missing, but an unexpected face shows up. Its a much older Erin Tieng.
If you thought the apocalypse ushered in by time traveling soldiers was an adventure, just wait until this story unfolds. Even though we are at issue #5, so many things have happened, but so many things are about to happen. Brian K Vaughn really knows how to excite his audience. Just when you thin things have almost gotten itself together, there’s more exciting new obstacles. Cliff Chiang’s art on this book is so great. Paired with colorist, Matt Wilson, make me hopeful that the creative team will not change. There is a bit of a Back to the Future feel in this book, but I am loving it.
