    I will miss Girls. On a retailer level it was our #1 selling Image title but more importantly it was the #1 or 2 book I read on its release week and always left me with a "wtf?" moment at the end and a need to read the following issue.

    If you haven't read this series - pick it up - they will be 4 trades that you will never regret buying

    Fantastic series. I absolutely loved it.

    And the finale is every bit as magnificent and beautiful as I'd hoped.

    Never heard of it, never seen it before -- but I'm leaving for my comics shop right now and DEFINITELY picking up the first trade. This sounds amazing.

    This series earns my HIGHEST recommendations. And if you've been reading CBR for a while you know I almost never come on the boards and say that! If you can find all three trades together, you might as well just buy them, because you're going to want to run right back to the store and get the 2 and 3 when you're done with 1. The cliffhangers are that good.

    I personally didn't like the end. I just felt it was lackluster, I am gonna read it again later though, after some sleep

    I wasn't really impressed with what felt like the compression of the end of the story... The re-read, however, was really helpful. I was a lot happier (though not totally satisfied) once I went through a second time.

    What was the deal on the first few pages? I didn't quite get that, but I may have missed something. Thoughts?

    The town kills all the girls thus killing the giant sperm thing, but it shoots out something into space and finally everyone has a happy ending (no pun intended). In the end we see a naked girl in a sperm pod travelling to a new planet.

    Horrible ending, excellent series. Nothing was explained in the end...it's like...what the hell was the point of everyone suffering then? What the hell was the girl's purpose?

    As far as I understood it, the girls were some alien race that propagates by infesting a planet. They failed on Earth, so the sperm ship shot out a message into space telling the mothership/planet/giant intergalactic penis/whatever to try again. Or the ship itself shot out more little sperm ships. I don't know. The whole story is fascinatingly weird.

    I too didn't get the ending or what was the point behind the whole invasion. That said how can you hate a book when one of the main characters is named Lester?

    Girls is one of the best things I've ever read.
