Lumberjanes is a graphic novel serial about 5 campers — Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley — at the Lumberjanes Camp for Hard Core Lady Types. The hard core qualifier is essential for these campers, because they encounter everything from three-eyed wolves to yetis, from petulant gods, to possessed boy scouts. They'll have to use their wits, and be brave, relying on friendship (to the max!) to outwit the cornucopia of dangers surrounding the Lumberjanes' camp. You'll want to read these books in order; be sure to get both volumes to avoid desperate, late-night quests to find the second installment! I can't help you with the 3rd installment; sadly we'll all just have to wait until April.— From Holiday Picks 2015
