LUMBERJANES #11 Gives You Your ‘Go Ball-Istic’ Badge – Comic Review

When we last left the Lumberjanes, Mal and Molly were off to have a romantic picnic in the woods that ended with them being sucked into a port-o-potty into another world, while the remaining ‘Janes made it their mission to collect some more badges.

Lumberjanes #11 is a continuation of the two story lines from the previous issue. Mal and Molly are stuck in another world with the appropriately named ‘Bear Woman’ and they’re trying to figure out how to get back home. We get to see a little character development with Mal as she struggles to find her bravery. Back at camp, Jo, April and Ripley start their venture to get badges with some very hilarious and character-like outcomes.


The best thing about this issue, for me, is seeing the continuing separate identities of the ‘Janes be revealed. Through the various things they go through to get their badges, you can see how every outcome is character specific and it’s great. I also enjoyed seeing the girls do the various camp activities for badges. ALSO… So. Many. Puns. If you dig puns, like I do, you’ll love the ones that are thrown at you in this issue.

If Lumberjanes isn’t already on your pull list, I highly suggest adding it. You won’t be disappointed with all the friendship to the max you’ll be experiencing as well as all the badges you earn at the end of each issue. The first trade will be out in April for those of you who prefer trades over single issues, so make sure to keep an eye out for that if you’re not currently reading.
