Graphic Novel Review: "Lumberjanes Vol 1: Beware the Kitten Holy" by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis

Welcome to Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types!  Meet April, Jo, Ripley, Mal and Molly (and their camp counselor Jenn) as they get ready for a summer of fun together earning Lumberjane badges.  Oh, and they are also working on a quest involving three-eyed animals, puzzles to solve, and of course the warning - Beware the Kitten Holy!

This volume collects the first four comics - and I wish it had more!  I'm so not done reading this... not at all.  What's not to love?  It has everything - kicky characters, funny dialogue, colorful & expressive artwork, and shout outs to female leaders and pioneers in their fields!

This is really the comic that people have been talking about for awhile, and I'm thrilled that there is finally a volume collecting the issues!  I don't even want to say anything about what actually happens in this volume...  just trust me, and go out and read it.  It is fantastic!  I can't wait for Volume 2!

I've been hearing fantastic things about Lumberjanes. I had to go to the book shop this week to get stuff for my library teen group's Free Comic Book Day thing & their website said they had it but someone else had snatched it up by the time I got there -- so disappointing!

I've got this one on hold at the library. I hope it comes in soon - I have heard nothing but good things!
