In order to earn the coveted Gimme S'more badge, the Lumberjanes set out on a backpacking trip in the deep, dark woods. But the woods aren't so scary anymore, now that the Lumberjanes have kicked, punched, and befriended all the fearsome magical monsters out there, so they set out to find the one thing that can still scare them all: campfire stories!

    While this issue is mostly an independent story, it still gives us more of the girls and traditional camp activities, with the bonus hint of what the next arc might be. I'm hoping for some Native American influences in the next arc. A bear turning into an old lady? What the junk! Read Full Review

    For that same reason, I think Lumberjanes #9 is a great introduction for any child to the ‘verse, more so than the first eight issues. Here, you don't have to worry about keeping everyone's names straight, or following the plot/narrative. It's just a bunch of friends hanging out, telling stories and having fun against the backdrop of a scenic summer night, and that's something that anyone of any age can be drawn into, and find enjoyment in. If nothing else, this issue is a great showcase ofLumberjanes'charms, and I can't wait to see what future issues have in store for us. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Nina Bird Dec 17, 2014

    Each scary story was unique and held the voice of the respective storyteller perfectly. This was a delightful issue, with moments of friendship and humor entwined with the spooky tales. The various art styles made each of the different stories stand out without being distracting, and watching Jen attempt to create a scary story was entirely amusing. This was a fun and all-around enjoyable issue to read. Read Full Review

    If enjoyable stand-alone stories that don't have immediate influence on the overall plot bore you, then this issue of Lumberjanes probably isn't for you. But if you enjoy great characters, a fun plot structure that gives each of the characters room to tell us a little more about themselves, with absolutely fabulous art throughout the entire issue, then this is definitely for you. Regardless of where you stand on the above, or even if you're not a fan of the series, everyone has to admit that the badges are flawless - I hope we all earn our "If You Got It, Haunt It" and "Pungeon Master" badges in our lives.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 18, 2014

    "Lumberjanes" #9 is a very atypical issue of this series, one that I don't think gives new readers a good feel for why this comic is such a hit. I'd recommend coming back next month for "Lumberjanes" #10 to get a better understanding as a new storyline kicks off. This one just isn't quite up to par; it's competent, but ultimately a little forgettable. Read Full Review
