Archery is a vital skill for any Lumberjane-it teaches balance and precision, which these scouts are definitely going to need with the Bear Woman back! The Lumberjanes are on a chase through the woods and it might be time for some long as they don't lose anyone on the way...

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Sep 3, 2014

    As usual, no complaints about anything that is Lumberjanes. Brooke Allen does an amazing job of capturing every character's personality in her illustrations. We get to see a little of the other campers this month and even they have their own unique style about them. So A + to you Allen, A + to Stevenson, Ellis and Watters. Read Full Review

    This issue was just amazing, maybe even the best issue yet. The girls fight and defeat a gang of evil velociraptors using friendship bracelets. The whole concept is gorgeous, and the execution is so joyous. Seriously, that raccoon/hat scene should be the stuff of legend. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Touch of Grey Sep 9, 2014

    The main theme of this book is “awesome adventures”, akin to cartoons like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, and Gravity Falls, with the difference of an all-female cast. There's a great deal of representation in this comic, including a couple of campers for girls who like other girls. Cute art, snappy dialogue, and the overall mystery of what the junk is going on at this camp combine to make a fantastic read every time. Currently on its fifth issue, LumberJames is not a book to be passed over. Read Full Review

    TheCultDen - Jamie Tidy Oct 3, 2014

    As always the creative team have once again crafted another issue full of all the pop culture references and sudden left field dramatic entrances that have already started to become the bedrocks of the series. Maybe if this wasn't completely with my sweet spot I'd be being to feel fatigue but as it's not I'm still loving every issue naysayers. Certainly writers Stevenson and Ellis keep zigging when I expect them to zag while at the same time building up a mythology with plenty of intrigue, its only Issue #5, which is nowhere near the impenetrable level of some other "entertainment" I won't debase myself by listing alongside this comic. It'd just be a disservice to this book. Read Full Review
