Published April 7th, 2015 by BOOM! Box
The first volume of Lumberjanes collects the first four issues of this awesome comic series. This series revolves around five besties—Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley. These five ladies are spending the summer at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Girls Hardcore Lady-Types following their field manual and trying to earn their badges! They have many an epic adventure fighting supernatural woodland creatures and going on quests.
As these hardcore-lady types fight battles and solve riddles, you will have SO MUCH FUN joining them for the ride.
The story is so epic and fun, and the art suits it perfectly! I love how these girls are every shape and size—They’re not just skinny white girls. It’s awesome reading a comic series with an all-female cast!
The set-up of the comic is awesome as well! Each issue starts as a page from the Lumberjanes manual highlighting the badge they will be trying to earn throughout the issue! It’s so great.
This series is a great one for all ages. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good adventure. I cannot recommend it enough.
