This is pure mystery-solving, bad-guy-bludgeoning, summer-camp fun, and with buoyant, off-the-wall art and well-rounded [feminist] characters, it’s already set up to be a hit. —Booklist
Lumberjanes follows the summer camp shenanigans of five badass, intelligent girls. It's about friendship and love (platonic and romantic), and the discovery of self. Watching the affection grow between two of the Lumberjanes (Mal and Molly) is a lovely warm spark that so many can relate to, falling into a content togetherness. Perfect for peoples of all ages, this will always be a favorite of mine.
Lumberjanes is intended as a kids’ series, but this is definitely a comic for all ages. A group of girls goes to summer camp—Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types, to be precise—where all sorts of weird and magical hidings ensue. Included in their group are a trans girl, two queer girls whose relationship blossoms during the series, and a non-binary camper. Along the way they meet sasquatches who listen to vinyl, Greek gods having family squabbles, punk rock merfolks, and a grumpy old lady who can turn into a bear.
Lumberjanes was originally intended as an 8 issue mini-series, but the demand has been so great that they recently celebrated their 60th issue, and the series is ongoing!
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.
