Lumberjanes Vol 7
Lumberjanes Vol. 7: A Bird's-Eye View - Shannon Watters,Kat Leyh,Noelle Stevenson,Grace Ellis,Brooke Allen,Carey Pietsch,Ayme Sotuyo,Maarta Laiho

This volume was published relatively quickly (so it seems), but it was mostly a filler adventure. The ending hinted that something bigger is coming, so hopefully the next volume follows through. Maybe the start of a longer arc? I don't mind these shorter side stories, but they weren't what I was expecting when I started reading the series.

Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy Vol. 1
Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy Vol. 1 - Chyn... Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy Vol. 1 - Chynna Clugston Flores,Rosemary Valero-O'Connell,Maddi Gonzalez,Jenna Ayoub,Kelly Matthews,Nichole Matthews This is a fun mash-up of two great comics but it didnt quite live up to its potential. It just doesn't seem like it challenged them so much, either group could have handled it on their own, so why a mash-up for a challenge not worthy of their combined efforts?

Because it's fun?

We'll have to go with that. I really loved the scenes leading to their run in and their initial interactions. Jen's freak out was great as always and the Gotham Academy mode of escape was pretty fantastic. What brought them together is a bit of an interesting concept, but also a bit of a let down. Personally,  I could have liked a real monstr, but I think I get why they went with this. Only this combination could have brought things together.... but still, bring on the monsters!

The art follows the Lumberjanes style more than Gotham Academy, but there are some cover variants that had the Gotham Academy style. As always, the Lumberjanes use the names of famous or historical  (herstorical? Is that a thing?) women as exclamations.  This volume had three:

Chien Shingle Wu - who worked on the Manhattan project
Grainne Mhaol - an Irish lady in active leadership over her land in the 16th century
Jackie Mitchell - the famous female pithe who struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gerigh
This has always been one of my favorite features of Lumberjanes. Since I already read both of these separately and a few other all-ages comics, I used thus one as my choice for Task 6 for Read Harder 2017. I do hope they do another combined run when this 'semester' is over at Gotham Academy.

This happened
Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power! (Lumberjanes #1) - Mariko Tamaki,Brooklyn Allen

I missed it until I found an ARC at school. 



1. left it in locker

2. it fell in car.

3. I lost it.


If either of the first two, I'm gonna find it, read it, then Jessica has first dibs.   If she does not want, someone else can claim it after I read it.

Lumberjanes Vol. 1
Lumberjanes Vol. 1 - Noelle Stevenson,Grace Ellis,Brooke Allen I think I went into this with my expectations too high. I expected to love it, because a lot of people I share similar tastes in books with loved and raved about it, but I wasn't wowed. It was a fun read, and I liked it, but I don't think I liked it enough to read more. Maybe, someday, but I won't be rushing to get the next installment. The artwork was great, but the story just didn't really grab and hold my attention.

What The What Did I Just Read?!
Lumberjanes Volume 1 - Noelle Stevenson,Grace Ellis

This was not at all what I expected!  I honestly thought it would just be girls having adventures while camping; and while it is, it also isn't.  There is a whole other story going on and it's all bizarre and supernatural.  Strange things are afoot and the poor Lumberjanes keep stumbling into weirdness. It's kinda like a female cast of the Goonies meets the Brothers Winchester.  They are quirky and fun characters.  Their reaction to things and their terminology is so 80's!  It's like stepping back into my childhood.  I got this because I thought it would be something fun that both my daughter and myself could read and enjoy.  Well, this was a really fun read, and I have a feeling my daughter will like it even more than I did!
