Reviews A Terrible Plan (Lumberjanes, Vol. 3)

  • carol.
    It was somewhat with surprise that I found myself enjoying the first two Lumberjanes graphic novels, as it’s not a form I’m drawn to (ha-ha) normally. Unfortunately, the third novel stumbles in both artwork and story, and my love affair seems to be settling into a low flame. Originally conceived in terms of the arc completed in Volumes 1 and 2, Volume 3 had to reinvent itself, choosing to take us back to the individual girls. There wasn’t a...

    This entry in the Lumberjanes series opens up with the classic setup of ghost stories being told around a campfire. The girls' different personalities are highlighted in the stories they choose to tell.Then, the camp has a free day where everyone can pick their own activity. Hijinks ensue.Mal and Molly go on a picnic date in the woods and, in typical Lumberjane fashion, something totally unexpected happens."Molly, we are doomed. SO DOOMED. AN UNS...

    The art… changed… for the worst. Suddenly the characters look five years younger, not at all teenagers anymore. They changed illustrators. And someone righted the layout for the comic, which you will understand if you juxtapose this volume and the second. It feels as though the authors and illustrators are taking less liberties now and are starting to adhere more to the conventional ways of translating their ideas into comic format.This means...

    As adorable as these stories are, I'm not sure whether I want to continue on with the series. 🤔

    My first experience reading a graphic novel has been Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson. My reviews of Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy and Vol. 2: Friendship to the Max can be found here and here. The four chapters comprising the second volume--in which the Greek gods Artemis and Apollo visit Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Girls Hardcore Lady Types and wreck havoc--was like an under roasted marshmellow slapped on a s'm...
  • Tink Magoo is bad at reviews
    I've lost a bit of my enthusiasm for this series with the changes that have been made in this volume. Before it was fun and exciting because it was full of mayhem. It gave you the sense of adventure like the characters . Even the illustrations reflected that. They were more rustic. Everything has been polished up and smoothed out. I prefer the fast paced madness from the first two volumes.Having said that, I still think it's a great series for an...
  • Sesana
    The story is every bit as fun as volumes one and two, but the new artist was a bit of an adjustment. Molly and Mal are extra adorable when exploring their relationship.
  • Maria
    I need a dose of happiness ASAPPLEASE bring the old art style back. I didn’t sign up for this 😩
  • Ashley
    I don't quite know how to rate this one, because it's so different from the first two volumes. I'm pretty sure this book marks the occasion of Lumberjanes being made from a limited run series to an ongoing, so changes have been made accordingly, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about all of them yet.The most notable thing of course is that the series has a new artist. Actually, two of them (plus several guest artists in the first issue collected...
  • Barb (Boxermommyreads)
    While I'm still enjoying this graphic novel series, this volume still fell a tad flat for me. First of all, there is a change in art and graphic design and I really liked the original versions much better. Second, I don't know that the story flowed that well for me. Usually in graphic novels, since they are collections of single issues, each "chapter" flows into the other. I didn't get quite the feeling of cohesiveness on this one. That being sai...
  • Kaitlin
    This is volume #3 in the ongoing, hilariously weird Lumberjanes series and I have to say I was excited for this. I loved #1 and really enjoyed Vol. #2 but this one felt a little less cohesive to me. I think this comes in part from the fact that there are guest artists working on these issues and this means that we have disruption in the style, tone and flow of the book. The set up for the story within this is one of ghost stories and fun though w...
  • Kristina
    Oh God, I adore these comic books!!! They are just so fabulous! And the art is on point!
  • Chris Lemmerman
    The first eight issues of Lumberjanes worked really well because each issue had it's own self-contained story with little story elements that contributed to a larger story which came to a head later on, which is a good way for a mini-series to work, especially one longer than 4 or so issues.Now that the series has become an ongoing, it seems to have stalled with this third volume, which is disappointing.The first issue of the volume is a jam sess...
  • brea
    I really enjoyed this. Like REALLY enjoyed this. These books are just too cute. So first of all, Mal and Mol ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥Their relationship is so freaking adorable. I am so proud that Stevenson added a notable LGBT relationship in a book that is technically for "juveniles." Their relationship is just so sweet and normal -- this is the way to encourage intersectionality in kids books. Other authors should take note. So this volume has two main ...
  • Lauren
    Hmmmmmmm...This third volume didn't really draw me in as much as its predecessors. I wasn't too keen on the artwork - the guest artists hadn't drawn the characters in a flattering light and most of them all had the same features with different haircuts which was a bit bemusing. I really wish Noelle Stevenson had been the illustrator throughout because her covers are bloody wonderful! I also found this story to be much weaker than the others. Whil...
  • Kristin
    I love this series! I really enjoyed some of the different art in this volume. Though it through me initially, I think it really worked for the story and series! :)
  • Stewart Tame
    Every volume causes me to fall more in love with this series. The Lumberjanes' enthusiasm and zest for adventure are contagious. They are the cool kids we always wanted to be, not from any sense of envy or anything, more in the sense of, "My friends and I have fun and do cool stuff together! The Lumberjanes have fun and do cool stuff together! We should ALL get together and it would be even more fun and extra cool! Yay!!" This volume splits up th...
  • Elisa The-Bookie-Monster
    There are no words to describe how much I adore this series!
  • Julie Zantopoulos
    Another cute installment of this graphic novel. I adore the friendships and communication of these characters and the friendships that are portrayed. It's a cute fun read!

    It's completely bonkers but I'm still really enjoying this series

  • Calista
    Story starts out with a camp fire and the girls telling scary stories. So camp.Then they have a free day and the girls split up. The Old bear woman shows up and Mal and Molly who are on a cute date follow her into another dimension. The other girls are tying to get normal badges and the names are hilarious. I didn't feel much happened in this book. Certainly nothing connected to the arch of the story. It was still a fun story and I wonder what wi...
  • Stephanie
    These books are so full of joy and love. Every time I finish a new volume, I have a huge smile on my face and I'm filled with happiness.I cannot wait to read Volume 4!
  • Nicole Craswell
    As with the rest of this series, this volume was a lot of fun. I was a little thrown off in the first issue just cause the art style was so different then I remembered but then I actually paid attention to what was going on and realized it was a number of guest artists. This volume didn't feel like it contributed as much to the overall story of the series and I mean for most of it over half the group was just kind of hanging around camp doing not...
  • K.
    There's a lot to love in this volume. Dinosaurs. Mal and Molly going on a super casual but totally a big deal date. Riley being her ridiculous self. Ghost stories. But at the same time, this felt kind of disjointed. Why? Because the art style was not only a massive shift from the previous volumes thanks to a change in artists, but the art style in the first issue is done by seven(!!) different artists. It's fun, but it's choppy. It also feels lik...
  • Erin Cataldi
    Another cute installment in the Lumberjanes series. This latest collection features scary stories around the campfire, portals to the Jurassic era, the quest to earn easy badges, the bear woman, and more. The characters are ever cute and keep you on your toes with their crazy antics and shenanigans. Intended more for middle schoolers, but I guess I'm just young at heart. I can't wait for the next installment!
  • Robin Stevens
    Lumberjanes is just the best all-ages graphic novel series around. Friendship, (gentle) romance, mystery and excitement (and dinosaurs, and women who become bears) at summer camp, this is total genius start to finish.*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first. Thank you!*
  • CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian
    Aw, Mal and Molly are so darn cute. And Bear Woman is officially my favourite side character. There's a nice balance in this volume between the high stakes alt universe with dinosaurs action that Mal and Molly get wrapped up in and the rest of the gang failing miserably at getting 'normal' badges.
  • Laura
    *waits six months for Vol. 3 to come out before reading Vol. 2**finishes both in an hour*I can't get enough of this series.
  • Caroline
    oof. Lumberjanes is just so good. I'm excited for more.
