Reviews Lumberjanes

  • Maygin at Not Quite a Literary Critique
    This was a really sweet series. I enjoyed it more than the most recent volumes where Noelle Stevenson left the series. I enjoyed how all these stories did something very different than the main plot line and featured more diverse plots. I hope there's another volume like this one! If you've enjoyed Lumberjanes, check this out. If you haven't read Lumberjanes, no worries! For the most part, you'd understand everything that happens in this series (...

    Lumberjanes: Bonus Tracks is a collection of the one-shot and special issue stories that have been published so far for Lumberjanes. These are the stories that were published separate from the main plot, and had their own naming (no number involved). I personally always forget to grab these sort of issues when they come out, so I was really happy to see they made a collection of all of them together.The issues included are: Beyond Bay Leaf, Makin...

    Collecting all of the Lumberjanes one-shots (so far), the 'Janes face off against dinosaurs, demons, ghost ponies, and telenovelas in this worthy addition to the Lumberjanes canon.We start with Beyond Bay Leaf, by Faith Erin Hicks and Rosemary Valero-O'Connell (who drew most of Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy, for those keeping count). This is probably the strongest story collected, with Ripley and the gang splitting up to take part in a lifelong feud...

    I would totally read an entire graphic novel by Holly Black. Good thing I have one at home!

    While not the best Lumberjanes book, this anthology format permitted some wonderful creators to have fun with the characters. I wasn't as enchanted by the "telenovela" story, that is mostly because I don't watch them, and had trouble getting into the mood of the tale. The other stories were a lot of fun. Holly Black, Faith Erin Hicks, Jen Wang, Kelly Thompson and Gabby Rivera had a lot of creative energy to put into these stories. My personal fav...

    There is just nothing better being made right now. I look forward to every single story, every single issue, every single volume. And it's another of those fun books that my daughter eagerly awaits as well. Just terrific stuff and it shows you that when others can take over for a volume and do so, so seamlessly, that you've written a good story with great characters.

    My weekend with the Lumberjanes!Not as good as the ongoing comic, but still enjoyable. I liked the Faith Erin Hicks story a lot; most of the others felt like filler... which they kind of were.Still, a great way to spend a day.
  • Kelly K
    2.5 stars.Cute but I'm so damn tired of Ripley running off or a few of the girls getting separated from the group being a plot. The best one shot out of this was the reniassance festival because it was a nice change of scenery.

    Lumberjanes- the comic series my 5.5 year old son begs me to check out at the library, ostensibly for me, so I can read it to him. This collection of mainly unrelated short stories was adorable and made for great bedtime reading.
  • Jen
    Lumberjanes are the antidote to bad days and sour moods. You can't read this and not feel a little better about everything. The stories are sweet and exciting, and the illustrations pitch perfect. LOVE THIS!
  • April
    Very cute collection of one-shot issues from the series.
  • Mary
    The short comics were really fun! I also liked that the illustrations were done by different artists.
  • Amanda [Novel Addiction]
    Friendship to the max! Another awesome Lumberjanes book.
  • Kate
    I don't love the Lumberjanes standalone shorts as much as the regular comics, and I'd already read three of these, but one of those ("Faire and Square") is excellent.
  • Kate
    This was cute, but I definitely prefer the main story. Still good to tide you over between volumes though!

    jo is...sensational

  • Laura Lawson
    Another great Lumberjanes story. Always happy to read these!
  • Air
    Cute collection of supplemental stories. Really glad they finally made a TP with all of them!
  • Abigail Pankau
    Entertaining collection of single-issue stories. If you like the rest of the Lumberjanes series, you'll enjoy this collection of one shots.
  • Emily
    I loved these cute little stories! It’s so cool to see how different artists and writers interpret the characters all together in one book.
  • Brandy
    Filler stories. Not bad, not awesome.
  • Sophia Schooler
    And again I say, if I ever rate a Lumberjanes book less than 5 stars, my account has been hacked
  • Richard
    Some of these stories worked better for me than others, but overall it's a good time.
  • Catherine
    Most of the story and drawing styles were decent.
  • Pinky
    I'm not sure where these Lumberjanes one-shots came from but they are a great addition to the oeuvre. The trip to the medieval faire could not be beat.
