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.


So I spent, well, yesterday truthfully, reading the entirety of what’s published of Lumberjanes. So today I just feel like I have to just yell about this amazing comic series. I’ve been slowly going into the world of comics, and while Marvel frankly scares me, I’ve been enjoying dipping my toe into the world of indy comics.

But anyway, Lumberjanes is a…well it’s hard to explain it in one sentence. It follows five girls on their Summer adventures. So far there have been two large stories, and two smaller stories with guest artists joining the normal group of writers. But that’s probably as normal as Lumberjanes ever gets. We’ve got this quirky group of girls who fight both supernatural creatures, and for their friends (“Friendship to the max!”).  Since there are several different plots I’m just gonna talk about the first plot which takes place over the first eight issues.

In the first plot the girls are dealing with these pretty crazy three eyed supernatural creatures that keep attacking the camp. Luckily with some badass fighting skills they’ve got it totally under control. The question is how they’re going to stop them from attacking, also to figure out why they’re strangely attracted to Jo. Not to mention Beware The Kitten Holy. I’m not making this stuff up. This is actual plots we deal with. And it’s as amazingly awesome as you would imagine.

Is Lumberjanes weird? Yes. Is it unbelievably awesome? Yes. The first eight issues have been published into two hardbacks and I can’t recommend you get them enough. You’ll just have to trust me on this one.
