Beware the Kitten Holy (Bound for Schools & Libraries)
Beware the Kitten Holy (Bound for Schools & Libraries) | Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson
Five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp...defeating yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons...what's not to love?! Friendship to the max! Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together...and they're 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. It's 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 won't want to miss. Collects Lumberjanes #1-#4.

Lumberjanes Vol. 1 | Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevension

If I read the phrase “what the junk” one more time I might scream. For some irrational reason that got on my nerves. It was on almost every page. There also was not much of a plot. I‘m kind of confused as to what happened. The art work was great though, but I probably won‘t continue with the series.

⭐️⭐️

ravenlee I felt the same! I gave it about four volumes to see if it got better, and while it did, it wasn‘t enough. Don‘t waste your time. 3mo
OnlyYoo Lollll what the junk. Sounds so stupid 3mo

Ha! My little guy is an avid "reader" but is very gentle of spirit and "dark" things scare him. I bring home graphic novels from the library occasionally and he has been looking through Lumberjanes but sometimes gets scared so has been "forbidden" to read it. I found him tucked away in a corner looking through it. ?? Reading problems start young in this household. ??‍♀️ (Too cute!!!)

I'm not entirely sure what I just read, but Lumberjanes are always a delight so it's okay. They're forgiven for how bizarre this was.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ A group of misfit friends go on scouting adventures in a fantasy-eque forest. Weird three-eyed creatures and other oddities ensue. I won‘t be continuing the series, but can see how it would appeal to middle graders. I wasn‘t into the story. I think I‘m just too old. 😆 Nice artwork, though!

Megabooks Totally agree!! 4mo
Ruthiella Me too. I liked the feminist undertones but it was a little too goofy for me. Plus, I‘m not a fan of comics anyway. I prefer text!😀 4mo

Meh. I‘m not quite sure how to rate this one. It was kinda cute and kinda funny, I think I wasn‘t expecting it to be quite so weird. Idk, I liked it. And I have a few volumes that I bought on a whim from ComiXology, so I‘ll keep reading and see if it gets better. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

ravenlee I felt very meh about this series, too. It was about volume 4 before I felt like I knew what was going on, and after another try or so I just didn‘t care anymore. 4mo
GypsyKat @ravenlee I‘m glad it wasn‘t just me. Although in all fairness, I recently read 10 volumes of Giant Days which I LOVED. So it could just be timing for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
ravenlee I‘ve been curious about Giant Days but haven‘t had the chance to try it yet. I read and disliked Nimona years ago, so I guess I should have expected not to like Lumberjanes. I felt like I was really missing something everyone else gets. 4mo
GypsyKat @ravenlee Giant Days is smart and fun! It follows three young women through their first years in University. Great characters. I would definitely recommend it. I‘ve never read Nimona, but it‘s been on my list for a while. 4mo

This comics series has been on my radar for some time, lauded by readers and lists alike for positive representation and engaging story. The latter was less so, at least for me as a reader; ultimately I was not engaged by the excessive - and thus realistic - juvenile antics. This doesn‘t make the book bad, just bad for me.

ETA: My kids have become obsessed with this series as of this week, especially the 7-year-old

A cute middle grade to mid teen Graphic novel that is as my 7th grade niece described it “Girl Scouts meets Gravity Falls”. She loved it, I liked it. I enjoyed the drawing style and the cover gallery in the back. I don‘t typically read graphic novels and only did so to complete a reading challenge but I liked the overall vibe.

CaitlinR I love Lumberjanes. 6mo

I am so excited right now; I‘m up early to do some extra chores before work because we may be getting a kitten tomorrow! We‘re meeting a litter being fostered by a local shelter (3 boys and a girl) and hopefully one of them will be a good match for us and Emma. It is super cold in Chicagoland (even our outdoor school will not be going outside today) and this is maybe the only thing that could get me to leave the house.

Man what a book! I desperately want to go buy volume 2 right now (but alas I‘m at work and my pesky book buying ban). This was so much fun and I enjoyed how it made women seem powerful, strong, intelligent, witty and more! My favorite bit though was that they used famous women in history as curse words!

Per Book Riot‘s “Which Lumberjane are you?” quiz, I‘m Jo. Yay!! This doesn‘t surprise me in the least. Jo is the one I relate to most, temperament-wise. And just like Jo, my parents made me go to camp, lol. I wasn‘t a “happy camper.” But I did love earning badges when I was a Girl Scout. I think for me it was all about collecting the pretty patches!

I mean what could be better than trying to untangle supernatural mysteries with your best friends while trying to stay under the radar of your camp counselor?

#21 A mystery by a person of color or LGBTQ+ author.

So using Lumberjanes as my mystery might be a bit of a reach, but mysteries are another genre I don't like all that much. I enjoyed Nimona, but I felt that it was missing something. However, Lumberjanes more than makes up for it. What a great concept, I can't wait to delve further into this mystery.

I should be trying to finish “The Shadow of the Wind” so I can get it sent along as quickly as possible for #lgpog ... but I‘ve been down with the flu since Thursday evening and I just cannot concentrate on this book. Instead I‘m going to indulge myself by starting Lumberjanes.

Those of you into graphic novels/comic books.. where is a good place to buy them inexpensively? Like thriftbooks but for comics? Does such a thing exist? 🤔

1. X-Men, Batman (1989 with Michael Keaton), Batman Begins. And if I can expand to TV shows Jessica Jones.

2. The Joker. Again, if I'm allowed to talk TV adaptations: Kilgrave. David Tennant was fantastically terrifying.

3. Marvel. Mainly for the adaptations, I'm not a big comics reader. Although I recently read and LOVED the tagged book, so shout out to Boom!
