Every single word of this is like a scalpel wielded by an expert surgeon. It would take an entire book length of words to describe how it made me feel, so why not just read the book instead? (Or the audiobook, which is read MASTERFULLY by the amazing Xe Sands.) CW: child and spousal abuse

This book is almost too good for words. Taking place in a sci-fi setting reminiscent of the wild west, this book is everything I could have asked for and more. It tracks five girls as they escape a Welcome House (their form of brothel) and become outlaws in order to gain their freedom. Davis' worldbuilding  is some of the best I've ever seen, neither over explaining, or leaving me wishing that I knew more, and the character dynamics were to die for. An absolute must read!

Even if you didn’t live through the 80s, Paper Girls exudes a peculiar mix of nostalgia and foreboding that perfectly encapsulates existing in the world today. Especially as a young person. Though the story centers around four twelve-year-old girls, I’d say a myriad of ages could enjoy it, from teens to adults. I’ve never really considered myself a “sci-fi person” but I’m already on volume 5 of this series and I’m hooked. So even if a sci-fi graphic novel is not your go-to genre, give it a shot!

Somehow, in spite of my love for Saga, Runaways, and all of BKV's other modern classics, I missed Ex Machina. Finally discovered it through this omnibus and WOW! As timely now as it was when it was first released this techno-thriller is rooted in the real world while offering some sterling sci-fi. Makes for a great gift or quarantine binge.
