[Graphic Novel Review] Lumberjanes Vol. 3: A Terrible Plan

Lumberjanes Vol. 3 Review

To start 2017 off on the right foot, I read Lumberjanes Vol. 3: A Terrible Plan by Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watters.

This volume had a number of designers, including;  Carolyn Nowak (Illustrator), Maarta Laiho (Colorist), Aubrey Aiese (Letterer), Brittney Williams (Illustrator), Aimee Fleck (Illustrator), Faith Erin Hicks (Goodreads Author) (Author/Illustrator), Rebecca Tobin (Illustrator), Felicia Choo (Illustrator), and T. Zysk (Illustrator).

If you haven't read Lumberjanes Vol 1 & 2 yet, I highly recommend them!

I really enjoyed reading the third volume of Lumberjanes! I love each of these characters so much. It was very fun to see what they get themselves into in this volume. My favorite character is Ripley; I absolutely love to see what she is doing in each frame and her shenanigans are hysterical.

I liked that each ghost story at the beginning had its own style of artwork that matched up with each storytellers personality. But overall, I didn’t really love the art in this volume. It seemed more cartoonish than volumes 1 & 2.

The storyline was good. I loved that we were seeing a split story- one with the girls at camp desperately trying to earn normal badges while the other two (Mal and Molly) were in a lost world.

Perusal with the Lumberjane series, plenty of the dialogue and things that were drawn into the comic made me chuckle out loud.

My final thoughts:
I would definitely recommend this graphic novel! I gave the collection four stars.

Thanks for reading!
What is your favorite graphic novel?


  1. I haven't heard of Lumberjanes, but I love the concept! I like the idea of two stories playing out simultaneously and a lost world sounds really interesting. :)
