Book Review: Lumberjanes, Vol 3, A Terrible Plan (Noelle Stevenson)
Publisher: Boom! Box
Release Date: April 5th 2016
IF YOU GOT IT, HAUNT IT!
Trying to take advantage of the first quiet day at camp in a while, Mal and Molly’s date takes a bizarre turn with the appearance of the Bear Woman! Back at camp, Jo, April, and Ripley must stay on their toes as they try and earn every badge possible, which ends up being a lot harder than any of them ever planned.
As usual, this is a mini review as it’s another volume in a series.
The Lumberjanes are back and they’re just as fun and weird as ever. I enjoyed the first story a lot: it’s a bit like a Halloween special, with the girls sat around the campfire telling ghost stories. This was a cool opportunity to tell some wacky stories and have some different art styles too.
The remaining stories returned to the main plot. The girls may have defeated a couple of deities but they’re still at camp and now they’re behind on getting their badges. Jo, April and Ripley try their hardest to earn badges in a range of fun activities, including cake decorating and extreme scrapbooking.
Meanwhile, Mal and Molly’s date takes a strange turn as they end up trying to best a bunch of dinosaurs alongside the Bear Woman. Those two are definitely the cutest couple and I hope they can get a peaceful, normal date at some point in the future!
If you’ve enjoyed the previous books then you’re sure to love this one. I’m interested in seeing where this new story arc goes and will be reading Volume 4 when I get my hands on it.
