Lumberjanes Volume 2

Lumberjanes Vol. 2 -  Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis

5 Stars, buy it


This series totally rocks.  The writing is fantastic, they have LGBT characters, the characters are awesome,funny and believable besides being utterly silly.   This series kicks butt.  Just as good as volume 1.


Issue 5- Rosie goes off to investigate what is going on at the boys camp and leaves Jen in charge who is not pleased. Much to the girls horror, they are being forced to make friendship bracelets. And there are real instructions on how to make them. Molly goes to the outhouse and trouble ensues much to Jen’s horror. In issue two, it starts and you think the girls are in trouble already but it turns out they are just playing tag. Diane is sort of introduced and she appears to be the sister of Jo. Most of the issue is playing capture the flag but there are references to other issues and it ends with Jen wanting in on what is going on.  In issue 3, the girls (including Jen) sneak into Rosie’s cabin for the crystal thing. Of course Rosie still can’t get Jen’s name right. We learn a lot about Diane. Turns out Diane isn’t Jo’s sister.   AAARG. Major Spoiler: At the end of the issue, Jo is turned to stone. In issue four Diane plays tricks on the girls who are frustrated that Jo is stone.Mal gives Molly a kiss. Jo is released from stone. Ripley later saves the day. At the end of the issues, there is a cover gallery again.  There is also  a preview of Giant days which I haven’t read but it looks interesting.



“Whoo hoo! We get to go to the Raccoon rodeo today!”

“ Yippe-Ki-Yay Mother Necessity!”

“I would never disgrace the uniform with mutinous shenanigans”
