The girls have a lot more to worry about than crazy creatures and supernatural events...they have FIELD DAY. It's a competition between the Lumberjanes and the Genteel boy camp next door that's going to be filled with surprises!

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Jun 12, 2014

    Delightful and irreverant -- and still sharp enough to throw a math or word puzzle at readers -- LUMBERJANES is a fun read for all ages. It's not the sort of all-readers book that's too juvenile or simple for grown-ups -- pop culture and literary references abound, and it's whip-smart. I can't wait to see what the team brings together next month. There's probably a super rad badge -- and more great story -- involved. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Jun 11, 2014

    I have no complaints about this issue, except that it felt too short. I guess time flies when you're pretending to be a comic book character. I think that Lumberjanes is appropriate for all ages and is honestly fun to read. Again, April needs special mention for this issue this was her time to shine. I loved her overly excited look as she takes in all the wonders and dangers of the cave. Props to Brooke Allen for perfectly capturing April's emotions. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Jun 11, 2014

    Lumberjanes is a comic that makes me want to be silly and have fun. It's a comic about friendship, adventure, and finding the wonder in your world, no matter where you are. Lumberjanes #3 isn't just a great comic, it's a reason to be optimistic. I wouldn't want to ask for more. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Lauren Michele Jun 30, 2014

    Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis really hit a home run with this series. It shows that women (especially younger women) can be a multitude of things such as smart, strong, funny, quick witted, and girly. Brooke Allen brings the girls alive through her art. Each girl is unique and different from the rest, showing that we all do come in all shapes, sizes and colors. This book is fantastic for young readers ages 6-12, and will surely draw in young female readers to comics! Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Nikki Sherman Jun 12, 2014

    This issue often feels like watching a really short episode of a cartoon, which speaks to the overall flow of this new installment to Lumberjanes. (And lets be honest, if this were a cartoon, Id watch it in my pjs all day). Filled with heart-warming friendship, witty references, and action-packed with more action, Lumberjanes is probably the book for you. Unless you have no heart. Or need for smiling. Do yourself a favor, and jump on this fast-moving train before it leaves you in the dust. 9.8 out of 10. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Jun 11, 2014

    Lumberjanes #3 is a great comic for all ages with the added bonus of being completely original and not based off something else, making it far more accessible to a wider audience. The characters are good, the sense of humor is great, the story and artwork are well done, and more. Definitely worth a look if you got a kid and you want them to read something a little more appropriate for their age. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Lindsey Bass Jun 13, 2014

    Brooke Allen's art reminds me of cartoons I watch on Disney and Cartoon Network. Everything is animated and colorful. It makes the visual story fun and interesting. I don't know who to thank, but they have a play list at the end of each issue. I think that's a genius way to learn more about each girl. I do wonder if we're meant to listen to the playlist while reading the comic. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jun 13, 2014

    "Lumberjanes" has got its heart in the right place, continuing to deliver a lightweight all-ages story that's intricately wrought enough to warrant multiple re-readings. And now that it's an ongoing, you've no excuse not to invest in this delightful romp of comic. If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to give “Lumberjanes” a shot; it's great read in its own right, and it'll get plenty of lend-out mileage. Read Full Review

    All ages comics get a bad knock. Lumberjanes #3 can be read and enjoyed by you and any tiny children in your life and should be. The series isnt too far gone yet and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you elected to pass it by. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Jun 11, 2014

    When you mix together the quirky writing, eccentric made-up slang, relatable personalities, and the occasional fantastical element, with the outrageously fun illustrations and theamazinglettering (seriously, Im so into the lettering on this comic) you get a stellar comic thats perfectly distinctive and too cool for its own good.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 14, 2014

    Lumberjanes is getting a lot of great press across the Internet, and for good reason. It's an adorable, fun series that relishes its wackiness. In my review of the last issue, I compared it quite heavily to Adventure Time, and the comparison still stands, but I felt that Lumberjanes #3 really felt like more of a solid comic overall. Stevenson and Ellis really seem to be settling in nicely. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for exploding eyeballs that turn the world upside down with secrets, or parallel realities where everyone you knew was a lie, or women and men in poorly designed skinsuits chasing down macguffins, seek shelter elsewhere. If you're looking for solid entertainment with an empowering message, then crank up the Stevie Nicks and grab "Lumberjanes" #3. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Fangoria - Svetlana Fedotov Jun 12, 2014

    The writers of this adventurous tale are the power team of Grace Ellis and Noel Stevenson. While both are brand new to the printed comic medium, Ellis is fairly well known on the internet for her Tumblr, Gingerhaze, which features mini-comics and quirky artwork. Together, they've made a solid entrance into the world of the graphic word, crafting a smooth story with larger-than-life creatures and Scooby-Doo-esque mysteries. Eliis and Stevenson have managed to balance the strong personalities of each character, giving each star its time in the sky, while the art by Brooke Allen plays perfectly with the buoyant atmosphere and over-the-top nature of the writing. It's a perfect blend of spooky, dark fantasy horror, cartoon madness, and fun, relatable characters for fans of all ages. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jun 12, 2014

    Brooke Allen and Maarta Laiho's cover to the third issue is a good bit of fun. The image of the cabin mates sitting around after hours telling stories has little to do with the events of this issue, but it is a familiar scene to any individual that has been through overnight camps. There is a fondness that it exudes and it is one that Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis capture just as well in the camaraderie of the girls throughout this issue. Once again,Lumberjanes is a real treat. Read Full Review
