Lumberjanes issues 1-6 review

Lumberjanes issues 1-6 Review

From the publisher: “Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together...and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Not only is it the second title launching in our new BOOM! Box imprint but LUMBERJANES is one of those punk rock, love-everything-about-it stories that appeals to fans of basically all excellent things.”

For an all ages comic about being a scout this is maddeningly addictive! The artwork is gorgeous. The LGBT subplot is well executed. The plot becomes nonsensical at times though which can be a major problem. This is probably to appeal to a younger audience but it still feels a touch forced. The series works mostly because of the group dynamic between the loveable cast of characters. In conclusion I would say read at the very least the first issue to see if this is up your alley. If you enjoy series with LGBT elements and a strong core cast this series will be hard to beat!
