Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy Reviews
Err… Alright. This is not the tale I was expecting. Yetis, three-eyed foxes, talking animals, crazy boys (literally)… you name it, this graphic novel’s got so many paranormal things that I didn’t even bother to count them.
I’m not going to lie, I thought the whole thing to be quite weird. You can’t make sense of it at all, and we’re not even given some kind of explanation for what’s happening. The characters just go along with everything, because… why wouldn’t they? They’re young, they want acti ...more
I'm in love. Every boy's own adventure book I read as a kid has been expertly transformed into this totally fantastic badass lady-types, rip-roaring, fun never stops, comic of perfection. The characters are just screamingly wonderous; the art - a breath of fresh air; the story- hilarious.
If you know anyone who is, or loves, a badass lady-type then make them read this because they will love it forever.
6/22/17 Reread for my summer YA Comics class with a focus on girls. One of the younger series/books we are reading. I liked reading it again, as did my class, though Nimona (also by Stevenson, and drawn by her) was much preferred, and also preferred was The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks. I think in part because it is younger, less snarky, shallower in comparison to these other two. But the energy and color and fun come through! And this is just the first of several volumes, so things grow an ...more
I LOVED THIS ALL
I’m really not one for graphic novels; the form generally misses me. But I kept seeing Lumberjanes appear on my feed, and the idea behind it always piqued my interest. Five girls camping at a residential girl scout camp with a hassled cabin leader and a intriguingly supportive camp director sounded both fun and familiar. Luckily, the library had a copy, and off I was to the adventures at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types.
It was fun.

What the junk?
THIS WAS FREAKING AWESOME! When I first heard about this I thought it was some kind of contemporary, coming of age graphic novel, but then I got it free for my Kindle app and decided to give it a go... boy, was I wrong as hell. This was action packed, hilarious, fun, crazy, and awesome as hell. It reminded me a lot of Gravity Falls and I loved it even more for that because I loved that show. I feel like this needs to be turned into an animated TV series ASAP because it wo ...more
WELL THIS WAS DISAPPOINTING. The plot basically made no sense at all, and the art didn't match the art on the cover which makes me so sad... There were a couple of funny moments (Ripley is incredible), but overall it was too silly for my taste.
Because I so enjoyed Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery, Goodreads and Amazon were constantly recommending this one, so much so that I finally broke down and bought it.
Lumberjanes, you're no Rat Queens.
I was expecting art work like the excellent cover by Stevenson. BUT NO - the illustrations are by Brooke A. Allen and done in a rather sloppy, rather annoying, semi-manga style:
The story itself was okay - girls at a summer camp have Indiana Jones-style adventures in the hopes of earning m ...more
