‘Lumberjanes’ #24 shows the power of teamwork

Lumberjanes #24 ends the selkie arc as it hits its next stride. Taking examples from the girls themselves, the creative team works together to bring the arc home in a satisfying way. While Watters, Leyh, Pietsch, Laaiho and Aiese may not be going for the same badge April was in this arc, but they certainly deserve one after delivering a finale where everyone gets to shine while still wrapping up the story in a way that never feels too rushed or leaves anything hanging. This is the kind of story you want going into the third year of a comic, and it doesn’t disappoint.

‘Adventure Time’ #50 is very continuity heavy

With a plot steeped deep in Adventure Time lore, Adventure Time #50 wasn’t for me, but more knowledgeable fans may get a kick out of it. The comic is technically sound though with creative lettering from Steve Wands to show how overblown and melodramatic the Lich is, bright and spooky colors from Maarta Laiho, and fun, expressive art from Ian McGinty. If you like a certain type of pet or hero cycles, the last few pages will be a treat.

‘Lumberjanes’ #19 shines a brighter spotlight on April

With the new creative team getting a little further in, Lumberjanes #19 is a fun issue that gets more action into the arc. The focus on April gives a little more substance to the good and bad sides of her character, but there are also great little moments in the art and with the other Lumberjanes as well. It’ll be fun to see how this arc concludes next month.

‘Lumberjanes’ #8 is a Fittingly Fun Ending to the First Arc

Over the first arc of Lumberjanes, it’s been slowly revealed that the reason for the strange happenings at the Camp for Hardcore Lady Types is a sibling squabble between the twin gods Artemis (or Diane as she is called in the comic) and Apollo. Jo is somehow connected to these characters as well, which was revealed in Lumberjanes #7. And Lumberjanes #8 is the huge payoff after all these reveals. Writers Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis continue to give each Lumberjane a unique voice as a character, and each of them (including camp counselor Jen) play a pivotal role in the final battle against/with Diane, Apollo, and an army of rabid Boy Scouts.
