Lumberjanes #1
Lumberjanes #1 | Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson
WHY WE LOVE IT: Five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp...defeating yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons...whats not to love?! WHY YOULL LOVE IT:Its Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls and features five butt-kicking, rad teenage girls wailing on monsters and solving a mystery with the whole world at stake. And with the talent of acclaimed cartoonist Noelle Stevenson, talented newcomer Grace Ellis writing, and Brooke Allen on art, this is going to be a spectacular series that you wont want to miss. WHAT ITS ABOUT: Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together...and theyre not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Not only is it the second title launching in our new BOOM! Box imprint but LUMBERJANES is one of those punk rock, love-everything-about-it stories that appeals to fans of basically all excellent things.

This was a good short read. I felt it could have been longer. I will probably read more of the series.

A graphic novel (comic) about a group of kick-butt girls at summer camp who spend their time fighting monsters and attempting to solve a mystery with friendship. This is a very quick read as it's only 128 pages. I love the incorporation of math, famous women, and the focus on the power of friendship. #graphicnovel #lumberjanes #girlpower

I'm loving the use of famous women as interjections when the girls get frustrated or when one would normally curse. The one pictured might be my favorite as it uses Juliette Gordon Low the founder of Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts was a huge influence in my life as I was a scout K-12 and then became an adult Girl Scout during my college years.

Fun. This group of girls are bold, brave and supportive of one another. Their motto is friendship to the max, which makes such a nice difference compared to the 'mean girl' culture that is so often prevalent and perpetuated through media.

Bradleygirl I do love me some lumberjanes. The first few books' art is definitely superior. 7mo

Free Comic Book Saturday is this Saturday, so I'm going to the comic book store to pick up my free ones and to get something for #ReadHarder - A comic by an LGBTQIA creator.
I think Lumberjanes would work, but are there any other suggestions?

Not much reading today, despite canceling the road trip for weather. Headache from last night + lots of kitchen time = pathetic.

Not sure how I feel about Lumberjanes. I didn‘t really get it, but I want to know what‘s going on, so I plan to get the next couple on the next library trip. I‘ll give it a tentative pick. Graphic novels still really aren‘t my thing.

This was the first time I read a comic on my kindle. I really enjoyed it and the art was well done.

I laughed out loud a lot and enjoyed the characters. Excited to read the others in the series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

mcipher ❤️ these! And graphic novels are the only books i like better electronically. I think because the panels overwhelm me on paper? 2y
That-Bookish-Hiker @mcipher I really liked being able to see one panel at a time too. You could take in the scene much better that way. 2y
mcipher I‘ll go with that instead of “I can‘t handle that many pictures at once”. 😉 2y

I chose to read this to fill the #readharder comic not published by Marvel, DC or Image challenge. This was meh to me - disclaimer: I‘m not a comic/graphic novel reader. I was clearly not the target audience for this, but I did appreciate the brief references to historical figures. Not for me, but I can now at least say I read this! Book 5/7. #24in48 #readharder2018

It was so short. I kept dragging my finger on my Kindle screen because surely that wasn‘t the end. But alas, it was.

Sarahandhella I am going to have to look at the library for it, because when looking at postings about the book people show pictures that I never saw. Maybe something was wrong with the cloudLibrary. Wouldn‘t be the first time. 2y
Sarahandhella Sure enough, I tried multiple times to proceed past the first part on the copy I had through cloudLibrary on both my Kindle and my iPhone, and no go. So I checked it out on Hoopla and surprise! I had only read less than 1/4 of it. 2y

TricksyTails @Godmotherx5 That's an excellent series. Later in the volumes, I was wishing for a better memory or waiting to read them back-to-back. Started losing track of everything. 2y

So I liked the story, but the art bothered me. Basic anatomy was completely ignored, people‘s hands looked so awful. Also, there was lots of typos in the Lumberjanes field guide parts. I hate typos in books, it‘s sloppy.

Read this book after stealing it for a night from my niece. I had bought them for her since graphic novels are all she reads and I wanted to give her some strong females to her reading endeavors. So far, I'm in love. When can I go to camp? ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Nebklvr Squirrel girl is cute too 2y
shendrix413 Faith is great heroine for her too 😁 depending on her age, if she's older, so is bitch planet 2y
TamarackTrail @Nebklvr she's 11, is that a good age for this one? 2y
Nebklvr @TamarackTrail they put it in grade school section at library. Protagonist is in college. She has squirrel powers and has to tuck her giant tail in her pants so it looks like she has a big bum. For some reason, kids find that to be hilarious. I would try Sisters and Smile first if she hasn‘t read them and also Ms Marvel 2y

This was such a fun and strange graphic novel. Sort of Girl Scouts meets Gravity Falls meets Night Vale. I have no idea where the mystery is heading, but I can't wait to find out. Also, I love the diverse cast of girls- PoC, hints of LGBT, and tons of awesome girl power. Friendship to the MAX!

I missed the appeal of this. I fully understand the inclusion/feminist points but the story just didn't seem cohesive. It felt like a meh regurgitation of Girl Scouts to me, when GSUSA has made their own stories, back even to when I was a scout, that seemed more well put together. #unpopularopinion

Umm, this was not for me. I gave it a try to meet a reading challenge #allagescomic knowing full well that the only comic I ever really liked was Archie (and a friend introduced me to some Neil gaiman that were cool). This one did not change my mind. It's had great reviews here and the concept of empowered women in an empowered Girl Scout type camp is cool, but confirmed that I'm just not a comics person.

Cinfhen Totally agree! 2y
