Review by TPauSilver
The Lumberjanes are a kind of girl scout organisation and Lumberjanes features five girls on their Lumberjane summer camp, with their camp mentor of course. Only things aren't as they seem in the woods. Something strange is happening, something supernatural. Lumberjanes is a beautiful book with a great cast of diverse and believable female characters and a fun story. My only criticism would be that sometimes, as all the panels are so strongly coloured, it makes the book look quite busy and it can be hard to pick up on important/interesting background detail.
Review by ecataldi
Oh my, I am soo glad I picked up this bad boy! It was even better than I anticipated!! You will want all your friends to read it so that you can talk about it and try to be as cool as the lumberjanes. Seriously, I want to be on their level. While at a summer camp for "Hardcore Lady-Types" five campers discover something mysterious going on in the wilderness surrounding their cabins. Three eyed foxes, yetis, a river monster, and rumors of a "Holy Kitten" keep the lumberjanes busy and drives their camp counselor up a wall. Hilarious and over the top, this comic amused me to no end. I was sold after the Holy Kitten, but it continued to get better after that, with sayings like, "What in the Joan Jett!?" minor hinting towards gay crushes, mythical creatures, and random rantings, this book has a little something for everyone. This is definitely one that I will buy and will continue to keep up with the series. Soo damn good!

Oh man, this is so great. I love how they swear by famous women. (And "what the junk," which is pretty great, too.) I love all the three-eyed monsters. I love that Ripley a) is named Ripley and b) is a pre-adolescent female Wolverine, Fastball Special and all. I love Jen and Rosie and the creepy boys' camp and I cannot wait for more of this to exist.
Review by alanna1122
This comic series was highly recommended on a few book podcasts I listen to - so even though I don't usually read comics - I decided to give it a try when I saw this in the bookstore. I was really underwhelmed. I think I am definitely maybe not a comic person? I just didn't find the storyline smart or clever or engaging. The art was fine but I was left wondering what I was missing. Yes, nice to have a gang of girls front and center but beyond that it really didn't offer much to me.

Read on July 21, 2015Five young ladies discover that there's more happening at their summer camp than they ever could have imagined. A bear woman, evil foxes, yetis, river monsters and more await these Lumberjanes around every tree. I'm curious to see what's going on at the neighboring boys camp...looks like trouble.
