    This issue points to the start of a new saga for the Lumberjanes. While Stevenson leaving is a bit heartbreaking, I know we will be in great hands with Watters staying at the helm and Kat Leyh joining in the fun. Read Full Review

    Another adventure comes to a close and the gang's gotten Jen back, but we've still got questions galore. It wouldn't be so strange to discover that time at the Lumberjanes camp passes differently than the outside world– campers can literally access another realm containing dinosaurs through an outhouse, so weird passage of time wouldn't be the weirdest thing by far. The camp seems to hold too many secrets to discover them all, but gosh darn it, our Lumberjanes are sure going to try. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Aug 26, 2015

    Lumberjanes is a comic about using the power of friendship to defeat whatever physical and mental obstacles nature throws in your path. Issue 17 is no exception, and writers Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watters and artist Brooke Allen look at the messy side of friendship as Jo gets jealous of Barney playing a too active role in their fight against the Grootslang and Rosie and Abigail continue to be estranged. And there is still the humor (Mostly Ripley and Jen's reactions to things.), adventure, and lush wilderness setting that continues to make this series crown jewel of all ages comics.

    This issue is a great addition to the Lumberjanes series. It answers a lot of questions, but raises new ones, too. Now that the girls know that something is really weird with the Lumberjanes camp, it’ll be interesting to see how they use what they know to figure out what it is. I’m really excited to see how everything pans out. Keep reading and find out what the heck is up with the Lumberjanes camp! Read Full Review

    I'm glad Jo's spat with Barney didn't last long. And I hope we get to see more of him. He's adorable. And he's always got kittens. This is basically all I need in a reoccurring Lumberjanes sidekick. Read Full Review

    "Lumberjanes" #17 is a solid conclusion to the Abigail storyline, and the tiny cliffhanger is a great lure to make readers want to see what happens next. I'm sorry to see Stevenson leaving the title, but hopefully Watters will keep the book this much fun alongside Allen and new co-author Kat Leyh. This book is, once again, a blast. Read Full Review
