    One of the Roanokes disappears which sees the Janes have to seek out a portal to find their missing one. A series that had so much potential and great concepts but alas appears to be just dropping filler volumes every four months or so! Also the mystery element has been swallowed up by basic fantasy. It almost feels like the intended reading age continually nods downwards.Oh my Christa McAuliffe, 5.5 out of 12.

    Another fantastic volume in the series. The celebration of inclusion and empathy and friendship and support, plus the clever quips and crazy-fun adventures, make this comic absolutely outstanding.

    I know I say this every time but - another cute volume of Lumberjanes! They're just nice fun light stories to read if you want to feel good and don't want to have to concentrate super hard on something. This one brings back the Land of Lost Things and also Ripley's dinosaur friend so that was very fun and Mal and Molly are adorable as usual.

    Read as individuals. I love the story and characters so that’s why I keep reading but I still really miss the old illustrations

    I don't normally read graphic novels, but there is something about the Lumberjanes that I love. The friendship factor, the adventure, and the fun they get into as well as earning their badges and keeping the impression that it's a normal camp. I also loved that in Volume 16, that they have aged the characters nicely as we see the progressions of characters like Ripley, April, Jo, Mal, and Molly, and yes - she still has her squirrel hat.

I also loved that in Volume 16, that they have aged the characters nicely as we see the progressions of characters like Ripley, April, Jo, Mal, and Molly, and yes - she still has her squirrel hat. This book starts with the girls out on one of their adventures as April wants to find someone fun to wrestle with so she can get her wrestling badge. This has Mal feeling uneasy as she is tired of being the "scared" one in the group and so she asks Ripley to help her become fearless. During one of their lessons though, Mal ends up falling through a portal and now the girls have to save Mal from the portal and bring her back to "this universe". In the portal universe, they will discover a spaceship has crashed and blocking the path for the creatures to go through. I did like that the author chose a spaceship as we got to see Jo's sciencey side at work as she is our science freak of the group. We also saw the development of Mal and Molly with a kiss or two through the story and Ripley was just her usual excited self - she's my favorite character. If you love fantasy, adventure, and friendship mixed with Girl Scouts - then check out the Lumberjanes graphic novels which are suitable for tweens aged 10+.

    I enjoyed the story, but honestly I have to knock a star off from my normal rating because of the artwork. I am not a huge fan of it, and while I normally pay attention to both text and the details of the artwork, reading this volume my ain attention was on the text, and I was just glancing at most of the artwork.

I feel that the faces of all the Roanoke's make them look old, and on top of that I feel Ripley, who used to look super small compared to the rest of the Roanoke's, which matched her personality, seems much closer in size to the other girls now and her personality almost doesn't seem to match her look anymore. I still enjoy the story, but wasn't a fan of the artwork, we will see what happens in the next volume.

    This series has had its ups and downs...and this, unfortunately, is a 'down' bit. That's been a trend lately, and it is especially obvious with this volume in particular. Nothing about it felt fresh or creative. So many old plot points were recycled that I kept asking myself, "Have I read this one before?" The dialogue lacked the usual snappiness and the characters themselves seemed bored of camp adventures. Even the artwork had an unfinished look to it, more like conceptual sketches than finish This series has had its ups and downs...and this, unfortunately, is a 'down' bit.

As much as it pains me to say it, I think this series is on its way out.

    This one took a dip for me. I didn't like the illustration style of this one because the ladies seem to be drawn a little too masculine and not exaggerated the features that I fell in love with the characters with (big poufy hairstyles or the side shave or the outfits and facial expressions) and even the adventure in this volume wasn't as exciting or magical or humorous as in issues/volumes of the past. There have to be issues that aren't that way so I'm okay with this one taking a dip. I'm stil This one took a dip for me.

    10+ This is labeled an all ages comic and I do think it would work for younger ages, but the girls are preteens so I think it would work best with that age group. Queer and BIPOC rep. #OwnVoices. Mal is tired of being the only Roanoke that seems scared of all their adventures so she turns to Ripley for help overcoming her fears. Unsurprisingly, hi jinks ensue. As always, I love these girls and their friendship. This is such a fun comic and I would recommend it to anyone. Read in issues (61-64).

    This was another great volume in the Lumberjanes series. The authors actually had me laughing out loud at one point, and the action was enough to keep the story moving along at a steady pace. I especially liked the character development and discussion of fear in this volume. I highly recommend this volume and this series.

    I'm over Mal's constant self-doubt and watching her self deprecating...I hope this is the last issue where her low self esteem is the main topic of the volume. Hopefully, it will be growth from here on. And I feel bad saying it, but I really don't like this art style. This and the last volume really weren't for me.

    Read as separate issues. Maybe this series is kinda losing its magic for me, because this volume was cute but the plot just felt out of nowhere. Didn't really advance the plot and felt even more random than usual. Best element was Mal's character development in dealing with her fears. Read as separate issues.

    This was a fun one. Liked the light hearted tone and the discussion of how everyone can have different ways of displaying strength. Even when it may not look like it, everyone has their own strengths.

    At this point, it’s kind of sad to see the “2015 Eisner Winner” label on these, because it’s a reminder that for the last 5 years they’ve only been mediocre. :(

    This storyline brings back the Land of Lost Things and it's filled with dinosaurs, danger, and dimension-hopping. Adventure to the max! This storyline brings back the Land of Lost Things and it's filled with dinosaurs, danger, and dimension-hopping. Adventure to the max!
