Which side does Jen choose, Abigail or Rosie?! While Abigail tries to lure a monster out so she can kill it (which is all kinds of crazy), Jen goes to the bearwoman for help.

    I am loving every issue of this arc! Not only is it action-packed as the story races on, but we're getting backstory without slowing the pace. The history of the Lumberjanes is fascinating and I probably should have guessed that the Bear Woman used to be the camp leader. Read Full Review

    It's darn good comics, and you owe it to yourself to at least give it a try. Read Full Review

    Lumberjanes #16 fills in a lot of gaps in the Camp for Hardcore Lady Type's past while setting up a danger and monster filled climax in the present. Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watters continue their excellent character work with Bear Woman, Rosie, and especially Jen while bringing them and the Lumberjanes together for the final showdown. But the real highlight of this issue is the versatility of Brooke Allen as an artist and Maarta Laiho as a colorist as they go from the past to the present with some Were-mooses, group hugs, magical transformation sequences, and explosions along the way.

    There is just so much joy and energy in the pages of Lumberjanes. This comic is a wonderful achievement. It's a happy, friendly comic that isn't ashamed of themes like friendship and loyalty. The art has always been a little wonky, but it's a wonkiness that totally works for the comic. Lumberjanes is a world unto itself, and I'm giddy for every little visit I get to make.

    If you still need convincing that Lumberjanes is the bees knees, an Eisner win oughta do it. Fresh off their recent Best New Series victory, writers Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watters continue their exploration of the history of the Lumberjanes, complete with domineering counselors, shape shifting bear-women and a not-so-little thing called a Grootslang Read Full Review

    "Lumberjanes" #16 is fun as ever, and it's a shame to see co-writer and co-creator Noelle Stevenson depart at the end of this storyline next month. Hopefully, the book will maintain its momentum with Watters, Allen and the rest, because I've come to love "Lumberjanes" too much to see it take a misstep. This is, yet again, a real joy to read.

    Overall, I’m going to say this is one damn good book. If you haven’t read Lumberjanes thus far, you’re missing out. This most recent issue is freaking awesome, too! It’s a good all ages book that brings up a lot of social issues, but is lighthearted at the same time. These girls are people I would have loved to be friends with when I was their age. I feel like I know them so well, and you will, too. Read Full Review
