Lumberjanes 2016: Making The Ghost of it

Lumberjanes: 2016 Special: Makin' the Ghost of It - Savanna Ganucheau, Kelly  Thompson, Jen Wang, Christine Norrie

4 Stars, Buy it


This is a different artist and I really like the art work. This artist feminized the women alittle and I think it’s pretty. That was for the first story. I’d give that story 5 stars.  The second story I don’t like the art as much, the art is done by yet another person and the people look cartoonish and weird but not terrible. The second story I’d give 3 stars. So overall 4 stars. Still a great series. I might need to take a break from Lumberjanes though.


Description (From Amazon): What’s to Love: Not only does this oversized one-shot feature a whopping 40 pages of brand-new, original, Lumberjanes stories, but we welcome two of our favorite creators to the campground: writers Jen Wang (In Real Life, 2017’s The Prince and the Dressmaker) and Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms), and artists Christine Norrie (Hopeless Savages) and Savanna Ganucheau (Fresh Romance)! What It Is: Jen takes the girls on a nature walk to show them which plants are edible in case they need to survive in the wilderness. Along the way, she tells them the story about an axe murderer who took his friends out, one by one until no one was left, thoroughly scaring Mal. Terrified and unable to sleep, Mal thinks she sees something lurking outside. Is it...THE AXE MURDERER?!?!
