Do you ever feel like sometimes the online world is all talking about one book, and you haven't read it and now feel like you are missing out on something? Honestly, I feel like this happens to me frequently and this time I had to get in the know, and as an added bonus, I got to discover a new comic book series along the way.
Lumberjanes features a pack of girls from all walks of life at a summer outdoor camp. They share a cabin, but most importantly, they share a friendship that camp and all the adventures within only helps to grow stronger.
Lumberjanes is a fun new series that I look forward to following. It is entertaining, but also provides themes that prove to be more complex. As I was reading, I found myself frequently having to search out my books. Where would I find them? In my kids' rooms! They wanted to read them too! I loved seeing this love of reading, but what I appreciated more was the conversations that resulted from what a friendship looks like to even what love looks like in its many forms, even despite our differences.
I cannot close this post without commenting on the artwork. I can't tell you what makes it stand out, but it does. It's eye-catching. It's colorful. It's detailed, and I found myself wanting to just admire the art for extended periods of time while reading the story.
Now I must wait to experience the next installment. In the meantime, I'm thankful my dear husband gifted me the books to enjoy when the desire arises.
Have you had the pleasure of reading Lumberjanes? What have you thought of the series so far?
