This is a delightful story with wonderful art.

I absolutely adore the Lumberjanes series! It's so much fun! The characters are all fantastic, well written, and immensely funny.

In the second volume, we get to find out what all the mystery in the first volume is about. Many questions are answered, and things get even stranger for our Hardcore

Lady Types.

This is a great series that everyone should read.

As with the first volume, this has plenty of physical action, monstrous creatures, and as usual, the Lumberjane girls kick butt and ask questions later, all in the name of friendship. This time there's an element of Greek mythology that explains all the supernatural goings-on of the first volume.

Definitely for girls who are "hardcore lady types!"

The continuing adventures of the Lumberjanes. Still quite excellent, and we find out what's going on! Definitely recommended to anyone who enjoyed volume one.

Fun, really colorful, lively art, intrepid girls at summer camp ( "Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for [crossed-out] Hardcore Lady-Types") overcome strange and scary things.

Lumberjanes Vol 2 (or #5-8) Okay, so I read the volume and not the issues individually but the issues have the same info, so I added them to the review. The volume turned out to have a little more and really made it worthwhile to wait for the volumes rather than read the issues, but that may

require more patience than I have. I've wanted to just binge through it now that I have a bunch of issues available on Scribd. 
All the things that I loved about the issues that comprised the first volume are still here. The girl are well written, their friendships are true to life, at least in my experience, and their capable. I also have a strange love of the liberal use of "what the junk" and "splainin". I can't help myself. 
The storyline gets even better in this volume as they learn about the strangeness of their camp. They took the initial draw and just made it better. And Jen, the cabin leader, is my favorite. The main benefit to the volume over the issues is that the volume has whatever excerpts from the Lumberjane Field Manual covering whatever badge they earn in the issue. 
There was also this other awesome thing. I had seen it back in #2 when Jen yelled "Holy Mae Jamison" but I didn't recognize the name. It's shameful, I know. But I made the connection then she exclaimed "Holy bell hooks" in #5. Which just meant that I looked up every name that came after. I thought using the names of famous women of their heritage was amazing. Another character says "Agnodice" in #6 and then Jen throws down with Sister Rosetta Tharpe in that same issue. The last one was Annie Smith Peck in #8. I love it! 
(the names are linked to the ladies' wikipedia pages, but Goodreads users will have to just google them.)
Seriously, the whole thing just makes my little feminist heart flutter.

Five girls, enjoying summer camp, continue in their outrageous and stereotype-busting adventure. I cannot say enough positive things about this graphic novel series. The artwork is fantastic and works well with the playful nature of the story. Every type of girl is represented and no one being

better than the other, as summer camp should be. While it starts out as any girl-scouts-esque story might, these girls are more concerned with saving the world and taking friendship to the max than they are with perfecting their arts and crafts. A final note is the beginning of each chapter being the badge theme, which is full of lessons that every young girl should learn.

I would fully recommend this series to anyone and everyone - no comic collect is complete without it!

A great conclusion to the story. My 8-year daughter loves it. I'm not sure she appreciates all of it. But that doesn't matter.
LibraryThing member Herenya
I enjoyed these chapters/issues more than the first four. Having established the characters and the situation, the story is really able to develop - and twist. The girls’ teamwork becomes more efficient as they now know what they're all capable of. Jen makes some surprising choices. April gets

5 fabulous stars for this one. I am immensely enjoying this graphic novels series. Love them! Can't wait to get my hands on more!

Another great installment in the Lumberjane series. The comics continue to get zanier and more fun and are insanely readable. The characters are all off their rockers and it is fun watching them take their friendship to new levels. Summer camp continues to get more interesting as they discover

Overall, a little too random for my taste. But there were a few 5-star moments, like the part where Ripley wished that everyone had a kitten and the part where Zeus turned up as a bull and acted like an embarrassing dad.
LibraryThing member MickyFine
I adored every second of this second volume of Lumberjanes comics. As the girls continue to have the weirdest summer at camp ever (Velociraptors! In the outhouse!), they also learn the value of their friendship with each other. Fun, funny, and full of such positivity for all forms of femininity and

Volume 2 is second half of the first major arc of Lumberjanes. It had Indiana Jones style adventuring and excellent relationships between the characters. I love the way the girls tackle everything that comes their way with no questions about whether they can do it. That recklessness gets them into

This is the 2nd volume in the Lumberjanes series and continues the storyline started in the third. It continues to be fun and well done and I enjoyed it.

Our crew of Lumberjanes is trying to solve the mystery of the strange creatures and crazy boy-campers from the first book. Little do they know one

of their own might involved and the mystery might involve something other than just creepy monsters.

This book was a lot of fun just like the first one. I enjoyed the colorful illustration and the characters. This story tied up the mystery in the first book in a way I found a bit just seemed a bit contrived and kind of concise. However, I am still enjoying the setting and the characters.

Overall this was a fun continuation of the Lumberjanes series. I plan on continuing with the series and am curious to see what the next volume brings

The gang at the Camp of Hardcore Lady Types take a game of Capture the Flag with the fellas at a neighboring camp to mythic proportions. Some will lay down their lives for the sake of their friends. Another winner with lots of action and camaraderie. Once again, the illustrations are outstanding.

I *love* the Lumberjanes girls. LOVE them. Also, the storyline is a hoot and the dialogue super-witty and -clever. Just all kinds of love for this series.

So wonderful! I read Lumberjanes Vol 1. this past summer and loved it, and Vol. 2 did not disappoint. Lumberjanes is a fantastic comic following a group of strong, sassy, very human girls at their summer camp. There's weird supernatural stuff, each girl has her own personality, and I think everyone

kids middlegrade/teen (tween/teen) graphic novel series with diverse characters, mythology and paranormal beings. You should read the first one first, so you know what this girls' camp is all about, but once you get it, it's rolls along quickly. There is a quasi-romantic peck on the cheek between

two of the girls but it doesn't go beyond that, so I suppose this is still totally appropriate for kids, but I could see some parents getting (unnecessarily) uncomfortable about that.
