Fangirls, it’s that time where we get to talk about the cutest comic I read; Lumberjanes! Last time, when we left off, Seafarin’ Karen’s boat was destroyed, with the selkies, Karen, and half of Roanoke Cabjn stranded in the water. Luckily, Lumberjanes are there for each other.
With a terrible storm coming through, and our favorite cabin full of Lumberjanes scattered, what is happening in this issue? Fangirls, it’s getting wild in the Lumberjane universe, and there’s so much happening I can’t handle it.
Fangirls, I’m really glad that this comic never calms down.
We’re back again, Fangirls! It’s that time where we go over the best comic and just die because it’s so perfect! I sure hope that you’re ready for this, because I don’t know if I am.
I’m back in action with the Lumberjanes, Fangirls. I know it’s a bit selfish, but I really missed reviewing this because it gave me the chance to really get my Fangirl on. Lumberjanes is easily my favorite comic that I read, because it’s fun, promotes friendship between women, and includes quite a bit of supernatural “wow” that gets me excited. I love catching up on it.
The other day out of no where I was digging around on Comixology (via my phone, which I hate to read on cuz SMALL) when I noticed there was a new Lumberjanes book out that I somehow didn’t get an auto-alert about! Right? Like, what the hell?! I’m used to getting a handy dandy little notice when a comic I subscribe to has a new issue about to be released, but somehow this one slipped through the cracks! I did what any diligent reader would do: I pulled up the main site (on my home computer, not on my phone, cuz it’s impossible to navigate on my phone for some reason. Maybe it’s just me.)(MOST LIKELY it’s just me!) and checked out the Lumberjanes books currently available. Lo and behold, there was indeed a brand new book available! Its a spiffy little one off special called ‘Lumberjanes, Beyond Bay Leaf’. Get it, ‘Beyond Bay Leaf’ sounds like ‘Beyond Belief’. Mmhm, clever! Also, check out this adorable logo:
True confessions: I am not a Christmas person. Nope, Halloween is my holiday! It’s not that I don’t enjoy ‘the most wonderful time of the year’, there are genuinely some aspects of the holiday season that I love: homemade butter cookies we make with my Great Grandma’s antique cookie press, hot chocolate in front of a fire, decorating a big bushy pine tree, hanging out with my siblings… Making my dog wear adorable sweaters! (Cute dog+cute sweater is like my kryptonite!) But when they start putting Christmas items in stores before October has even begun and airing commercials for Christmas sales it kinda makes me wish I was a necromancer or mad evil scientist so I could unleash the zombie apocalypse the day after Thanksgiving on all the insane ‘Black Friday’ shoppers. I despise how commercial Christmas is, and hordes of holiday shoppers are practically zombies already… Yes, I know, it’s practically Grinchy! (Maybe if I put Santa hats on all the zombies?) If it was left up to me, I’d totally skip the nightmare of holiday shopping and I’d stay home enjoying a big cup of tequila spiked hot cocoa (add a pinch of cayenne for an adult version of Mexican hot chocolate!) and binge watch every Christmas horror movie ever made, starting with that perennial favorite, “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
