    Ripley may have been my favorite part of this issue. She was adorable! When I first encountered her, she was rambunctious, active, spunky, and curious. Seeing her looking forward to the Bandicoot Bacchanal showed that she is multifaceted and sometimes adventure isnt the only thing on her mind. I think Ripley saw some major development, even if it was part of the backdrop of the main story. Read Full Review

    Is there any comic quite so effortlessly enjoyable as Lumberjanes? Filled with raging sea serpents, ill-advised antics and a healthy splash of heart, the latest from Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh again proves that above ground or below water, Lumberjanes is the best all ages book on the shelf today.

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Oct 21, 2015

    Lumberjanes #19 is chaotic fun with a side of fandom, indie music, and sea monsters. Carolyn Nowak's art captures the loose, raw qualities of three chords and truth punk rock with twisting, turning layouts for the scenes where the sea serpents come out that contrast with the standard grids for character interactions. Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh also build up April's character and make her a flawed, yet determined and passionate young woman, who cares deeply about her friends even if she isn't always the best one.

    Lot of fun interactions and hijinks to had this issue. While I'd also suggest reading at least issue 18 first, I would happily recommend this to anyone for lively and fresh read. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Sam Wildman Oct 27, 2015

    The saddest thing in this whole issue is the other girls trying to explain to Ripley that they might not be able to make her glittery dress or get back to camp in time for her big night. She doesn't mean to be inconsiderate – she just gets ideas in her head sometimes and goes for it. Getting mixed up in someone else's business is just part of that. She's not thinking of her friends. I think this is great because for kids who read this book – and quite a few adults out there, too – it's a good reminder that as excited and sure about something as you might be that doesn't necessarily mean you get to ignore your friends and their feelings. This is very much an arc with a message but I don't necessarily mind it at all. (We'll just have to see how preachy it really gets.) Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Ashley Leckwold Oct 23, 2015

    With the new creative team getting a little further in, Lumberjanes #19 is a fun issue that gets more action into the arc. The focus on April gives a little more substance to the good and bad sides of her character, but there are also great little moments in the art and with the other Lumberjanes as well. Itll be fun to see how this arc concludes next month.Rating: 7.8/10 Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Oct 21, 2015

    Lumberjanes #19 is great for fans of April, but the issue doesn't offer much else to anyone else. There isn't as much group interaction which somewhat takes away from the magic that readers are used to with the series, but it's still a fun time and easy to recommend to all ages. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 26, 2015

    In the end, "Lumberjanes" #19 is a big disappointment. There's a funny bit near the beginning where we learn that, in the "Lumberjanes" universe, "The Baby-Sitters Club" series was instead, "The Mermaid Lemonade Stand" series, but it's not enough to carry this story. Hopefully, the next storyline will bring the series back up to its earlier levels of greatness, but -- for the moment -- this is a far cry from the fun we normally find in "Lumberjanes."
