FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!
At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.
Collects Lumberjanes No. 1-4.
I was procrastinating studying for my finals so I decided to read the first issue of this comic and I actually had to force myself not to read the next. This comic drew me in from the first page and there’s enough adventure and mystery in the first issue that makes you eager to come back for more.
I was quite intrigued by the all-female comic characters as I’ve never read something like it before. The second and third issues of Lumberjanes were amazing. Although we aren’t told directly what each character’s personality is, we’re given insight by the way they react to different things and situations. I personally adore Mal and Ripley.
I’m all for the adventures of this weird summer and I think I’m already in love with this comic series.
The artwork is unique and amazing and I find myself taking in the details as well instead of just reading the dialogue and moving on. The writing style is fresh as well as entertaining and it’s the combination of all these things: amazing artwork, awesome writing style and fun characters that make for an addicting read.
After finishing this volume I’m convinced that this is one of the best I’ve ever read. It’s easily high up in my Top 5. I can’t wait to start and finish volume 2.
