While its not a surprise to see magical creatures at this camp for hardcore lady-types, it's always fun to see which kind are going to stumble in. I loved meeting Seafarin' Karen and her attitude toward teamwork. It was great to see April trying so hard to recover from her faux-pas in the last set of issues. But seriously, who is supposed to keep a clear head when mermaids are around, especially those BA mermaids?

Anyway, this is another well done storyline that emphasizes everything that's important to the Lumberjanes and lets the girls of Roanoke cabin do awesome things together. I appreciate that the scenario is never perfect for all the girls and that most of them make some sort of error but at least one error proves fruitful. That's life. Without the magical creatures.

The Amazing Women exclaimed in these issues are:

Finally caught up! Well, as far as the collections will go. I have #25 to read, but it will have to stand alone..... and then I'll be forced to wait.

Lumberjanes #22
Lumberjanes #22 - Shannon Waters,Carey Pietsch,Kate Leth

4 Stars, Buy it

 

The story line with the selkies continues.   Good story but not as hilarious as other issues but still really good. I’m getting used to the artist. Worth reading and buying.



Description from Amazon: When selkies hold Seafarin' Karen's boat hostage, the Lumberjanes will have to rely on the one person they aren't sure they trust: the Bear Woman.



Characters for my reference

 

April- Short red head girl

Jen- dark skinned camp counselor

Jo- tall kid

Mal: Dark haired girl with half shaved head

Molly: Blond haired girl

Ripley: Short brunet with headband around her head and blue streak in hair

Rosie- head of camp. Constantly calls Jen Jane. Very cool.

Diane- girl from another cabin at the camp, black hair Apparently the sister of Jo.

Bubbles- Molly’s raccoon hat who happens to be a live raccoon

Barney- Boy from boys camp that they run into a lot

Triumph of the Cute
Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! Vol. 1: Hooked On A Feline - Kate Leth,Brittney Williams

Hellcat is the story of a plucky young woman who struggles to make a living and help her friends while overcoming minor problems such as unemployment, homelessness, having died and escaped from Hell, and having the story of her teenage years published without her permission in an embarrassing comic book.

 

Hellcat has one of the most confusing backstories of any Marvel character, and that is saying a lot. Back when Marvel published other types of comics than superheroes, they published a teenage romance comic called Patsy Walker; imagine Archie comics if Archie was a girl. In the 1970's Marvel made three attempts to introduce a Catwoman knock-off: Tigra, Hellcat, and Black Cat, in that order. In a bizarre plot twist it was revealed that Hellcat was actually Patsy Walker, whose mother had made a deal with the Devil to send her daughter to Hell in her place. Patsy fought her way out of Hell, emerged with superpowers, and became a C list superhero.

 

Kate Leth's story depicts Patsy as a never-give-up optimist who keeps working as hard as she can despite living in a storage closet in the building of the company that just fired her. Brittney L. Williams' art is manga influenced and very cute without going full chibi, although Natasha Allegri's fill-in issue is full-on chibi.

 

Hellcat is an example of a recent trend at Marvel of throwing everything at the wall in hopes that something sticks. Out of 20 or 25 relaunched comics a year there are always a couple that are really good. In the last round it was Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel. In this round it is Hellcat and Vision. The problem with these high quality but limited appeal boutique comics is that the creators quickly move on to other projects. I hope Hellcat can survive in this environment, but I am not as optimistic as Patsy Walker would be.

1. Star Trek ongoing.   Retcon of the original universe, and even original stories.  I'd suggest this for fans of the Nu!Trek movies, for the Retcon square.   Chekov could count as Teen Sidekick if you want to continue and fill in another square.   Tie-In to Show/Movie and Foreign Hero could count for further squares if you really want to marathon this series. 

 

2. The Maxx.   Dark and gritty, this tackles a lot of issues - mental health, trauma and homelessness.   It packs a punch to the gut, but is also gorgeously written with lush illustrations.   Writer is Artist, Antihero, Streetlevel, and Not Of This World would fit this series nicely.   

 

3. Edward Scissorhands: Parts Unknown.   Adorable and heartwarming, this is a brilliant tie-in to the movie.   Tie-into movie, Girl Power, Team Up and Teen Sidekick would all fit nicely for this graphic novel.

 

4. Bloodshot: Setting the World on Fire.   Amnesiac, nanite enhanced assassin.   I'm all in for this one!   Bloodshot is a complete badass, and he's a large part of why I fell in love with the Valiant universe.  Anti-hero, Novelist Writes Comics, Military Training and Loner all fit Bloodshot quite nicely. 

 

5. Lumberjanes Volume One.  Adorable girls at camp go on adventures and get into trouble.   Sounds too cutesy for me, but I was utterly charmed by this anyway.   Go figure!   Teen Sidekick, Team Up and Girl Power fit this nicely.   

 

6. Saga Volume One.   Space Opera about how war can tear apart families.   Oversimplified explanation, but anything that does justice to this would be pages long.   Brilliant!   Not of This World and Military Training would work well for this. 

 

7. The Rabbi's Cat.  Charming, thoughtful take on religion, politics, and most everything thrown in here.   And there's a talking cat who argues that he should have a bar mitzvah which is pretty much the most awesome thing I can think of.   Translated, Foreign Creator,  Turned into TV Show/Movie, and Writer is Artist work for this series. 

 

8. Spawn Origins Volume one.  A man comes back from hell as Spawn with no memory of who he is.  Although he was sent the Violator to... I wanna say help him, but his name is Violator so who's really going to believe that?   Origin Story, Foreign Creator, Loner, Military Training, Antihero, and Turned into TV Show/Movie work for this. 

 

9. Buffy Season Eight: The Long Way Home.   Buffy is resurrected and written by the writers of the show, with illustrators handpicked by Joss Whedon - from what I understand.   If you can't get enough Buffy, you need to read this.  You can keep this going for a while, to.   Not of This World, Tie-In to TV Show/Movie, Teen Sidekick, Girl Power, Team Effort and Military Training all can work.  

 

10. Atomic Robo Volume One.   Hilarious comic book.   Just fun, funny, with a lot of heart.  I could see this turning non-graphic novel readers into graphic novel readers, that's the level of fun.  Team Effort, Origin Story, and Not of This World could all be used for this series.
