    If you are looking for a great all-ages book to speak to that inner child buried deep within all of us, look no further than Lumberjanes. It's off to a great start and has a bright future in store as one of Boom's best titles. Even if you haven't read the previous three issues, this book is easy to jump into, and reprints of the very successful first three issues should be on the way. Lace up your hiking boots and don your coonskin cap, and jump into the absurd adventures of Lumberjanes. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Jul 10, 2014

    LUMBERJANES is pure fun; it's the summer camp story that young readers can aspire to (minus, perhaps, some of those supernatural elements) and that older readers can wish they'd experienced. The Lumberjanes deal with wild situations in unpredictable yet delightful ways, and it's a joy to read whether you're camper-aged or slightly beyond. Read Full Review

    "Lumberjanes" #4 has so much to love that it simply can't all fit in a short review. Between the hipster yetis, clever catchphrases and secret handshakes, "Lumberjanes" has a whole lot of heart. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lindsey Morris Jul 10, 2014

    Lumberjanes is a premise that could have easily become over-wrought, bogged down in all the issues it wanted to address while trying to also have an enjoyable plot, but the creative team pulls it off with aplomb. There are some pacing issues that still need to be worked out, but this book remains a solid read for any comics fan. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Jul 10, 2014

    The series as a whole has a lot going for it. The creative team continues to put some great moments into each chapter and tease out the truly bizarre features of the woods surrounding the camp grounds. This issue does dive a bit more into a seemingly ongoing mystery about the grounds and readers have some more villains about which to be worried. There are a few rough moments in this issue with the art and a bit of dialogue. Additionally, while played for comedy, a new group of characters are written in a way that utilizes some stereotypes that work against the story. Lumberjanes continues to be an entertaining series, and despite some problems this time, should stay on readers' pull lists. Read Full Review
