Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy (Lumberjanes #1-4) Reviews
WELL THIS WAS DISAPPOINTING. The plot basically made no sense at all, and the art didn't match the art on the cover which makes me so sad... There were a couple of funny moments (Ripley is incredible), but overall it was too silly for my taste.
Err… Alright. This is not the tale I was expecting. Yetis, three-eyed foxes, talking animals, crazy boys (literally)… you name it, this graphic novel’s got so many paranormal things that I didn’t even bother to count them.
I’m not going to lie, I thought the whole thing to be quite weird. You can’t make sense of it at all, and we’re not even given some kind of explanation for what’s happening. The characters just go along with everything, because… why wouldn’t they? They’re young, they want acti ...more
I picked this up because so many of my friends that I trust have gushed about it. (That's how I end up picking up most of my books these days.)
And I wanted to love it. But... I didn't.
Don't get me wrong. I liked it fine. But that's the very definition of damning something with faint praise...
This happens every once in a while. A book everyone else loves leaves me kinda feeling.... meh.
This happens to everyone I think, and it's not an issue of quality. I think it's an issue of personal taste. I ...more
What the junk?
THIS WAS FREAKING AWESOME! When I first heard about this I thought it was some kind of contemporary, coming of age graphic novel, but then I got it free for my Kindle app and decided to give it a go... boy, was I wrong as hell. This was action packed, hilarious, fun, crazy, and awesome as hell. It reminded me a lot of Gravity Falls and I loved it even more for that because I loved that show. I feel like this needs to be turned into an animated TV series ASAP because it wo ...more
This was so much fun and totally not what I expected. It was utterly bizarre, in the best way and I'm extremely intrigued (also very much relieved I have the second volume ready to jump straight into...) This was such a fun read and of course the artwork was gorgeously endearing. I really, really appreciated that the characters were all different shapes, sizes and colours. It made them feel real, rather than a classic caricature of what a girl 'should' look like. I can't wait to carry on with th ...more
This was so damn adorable and hilarious! The art was gorgeous, the writing was fantastic, the characters were quirky and the story was just great and unique and gave me all the feminist and butt-kicking feels! I need more!!!
I was kind of disappointed with this one. I had thought going into this that Noelle Stevenson had done the art, but alas I was wrong. I kind of wish she would've done the art, because I wasn't a huge fan of Brooke Allen's style. It's kind of messy in my opinion. I still enjoyed the story and will definitely be picking up the next volume, but I just wasn't impressed with this volume.
I've never read J.K. Rowling's fiction but I now have a clue what readers who live and breathe the wizarding world of Harry Potter are so attracted to. I found an abundance of wonder and wit in Lumberjanes, a graphic novel series that requires less of a time commitment than the trip to Hogwarts and didn't tip the scale into a children's book for me. I should clarify that the creators of this series are not riffing on Rowling. There are enough authors doing that. This is not another fantasy serie ...more
