    Instead of leaving things well enough alone and letting the other Lumberjanes have a little bit of normal camp fun she leads them all on a quest to find Harlow and help her get the band back together. Of course, that generally involves poking around the lake, getting attacked by lake monsters, and convincing Harlow to go along with it. I feel bad for the other girls, really. They just want to have some fun. And Jen is getting seriously bummed out by all the unusualness about. Still, mermaids! (Merwomyn.) This should be fun. Read Full Review

    I'm happy to say that the new creative team does not disappoint! The issue isn't jam-packed with the same sort of adorable wackiness, but everybody comes close enough to produce another enjoyable issue of Lumberjanes. Read Full Review

    The look of the characters aside, Shannon Watters, Kat Leyh, Carolyn Nowak, Maarta Laiho, and Aubrey Aiese use the strong relationships between the Lumberjanes cast to expand the series' mythos and continue to explore the nature of friendship in a color, high energy way. Read Full Review

    Lumberjanes showed some impressive scale throughout its last arc, and as a result issue #18 reads as noticeably more contained. The issue still possesses the same bubbly spirit and infectious charm of past installment, but its focus " a rift between mermaids, er, merwomyn " lacks the rampant sense of whimsy we've come to expect.

    I'm intrigued by a giant merpeople battle, but I hope getting there becomes more interesting as the arc continues. Read Full Review

    The Lumberjanes are always doing what is right. So they are going to mend a broken friendship. Of course it does have to have a weird side to it so mermaids and sea serpents appear. Read Full Review
