    Still liking the story but it seems simplified. Liking the art a bit less in this episode. Still living the series and looking forward to future editions.

    So this was either a lot better than the last few volumes or the fact that I haven't read these for a while clouded my judgement with nostalgia. I always love when Abigail makes appearances though, so that was nice.

    One of the best perks of being a Librarian is getting to preview books before they actually hit the shelves! Not super crazy about the artwork this time around. This artist's style just isn't my thing, I guess. But the story was fairly good...despite the fact there (view spoiler)[were NO Magical Kittens this time around (Always a bummer since I adore the Magical Kittens and the stories with them are my favorites) (hide spoiler)] .

We did get a few great Ripley moments, though... AND we learned the origins of the Lumberjane way of life. I would have liked the entire thing to be an Origins Story, though. It seemed like the writers were trying to do too much with too little space. That is, they could have made two separate books: One the Origins and the other about Rosie, Abigail, (and their drama) and the Hunt for the Creeping Vine. Two separate books would have allowed both stories to be fleshed out much more and would have made everything better overall. But I suppose I'll let my imagination fill in the details.

    Heading into the forest on a punishment from Rosie, the 'Janes run across a familiar face while learning the secret history of the camp. This one's pretty fun, like all Lumberjanes stories. The dual timelines is a nice change of pace from what we're used to, although the artwork on the flashback is much better than the present day stuff. The present day art is a little too cartoony (even for Lumberjanes) and it contrasts quite poorly with the more detailed flashback stuff.

I definitely appreciate the history though - I enjoy Lumberjanes most when it's doing continuity stuff, and bringing Abby and Rosie together again one last time before End Of Summer was nice.

    I’m officially caught up to the newest editions of the “Lumberjanes” series! Huzzah! Even though I still have the prequels and some others to read, I’m quite pleased with this development as I’ve been working hard towards this goal for the past two weeks. Overall, I did like this book in the “Lumberjanes” series although I felt like it was a little tough to get into.

What I really enjoyed, above all else, was that this really wasn’t a book about the Roanoke cabin, but about how the Lumberjanes came to be (I love Janiper/Jane and her whole storyline with her mother’s camp and how she felt like she never fit in anywhere) and I loved also seeing flashbacks of Rosie’s friendship with Abby and them trying to forgive each other, trying to move on from the past. I would really like if, from here, Abby got more involved with the camp and was a regular, like, teacher or something there? I also liked that the “monster” in this one wasn’t really a monster at all, but just a very invasive plant. It sort of shows how the land of the camp, in general, is also very interesting and magical. I can’t wait for the newest one to come out in August (I’m looking very forward to reading it now that I’m mostly caught up)! I also hope they continue to use the same artist that they did in this one (and the last couple). I think the art right now is A+ and very much the style I prefer (where it’s like cutesy, but also takes, like, really explorative style choices in certain boxes at certain points).

    A virulent plant is the antagonist in this volume, but the conflict serves as a way to dig into the past and even the origins of the Lumberjanes, and build out a bit more the relationship between Rosie and Abigail. The insights into the history of the Lumberjanes and what led to its formation is interesting, but there really isn't much going on here with our cabin of mainstays - while they are present, they serve more as a framing device and don't get to do much.

Still, the story still has the charm of Lumberjanes and there's some great moments (especially with axes); it just feels a little too distracted with its history to give much development time to our main cast. But the art works well throughout, and getting to see a bit more of Rosie (and Abigail) is a nice perk too.

    Apparently the penultimate volume. There's basically three things going on here: random supernatural hijinks with a creepy tree, the relationship between Rosie and Abigail, and the origin story of the Lumberjanes as an organization and of the camp. The tree thing is pretty much in the background, and that's fine, but wedging in both the Rosie/Abigail and origin story doesn't quite work in only four issues. They both feel sort of shortened, especially the origin story. Still a very fun book to re Apparently the penultimate volume.

    This one was fun. Loved seeing Abigail come back to hang with Rosie and the gang. Also really enjoyed getting the backstory for how the Lumberjanes were actually formed and seeing flashbacks to previous Janes. Did get a little board with all the tree talk but that's about it. Interested in this new mysterious bird and what the story may be with that. It seemed like the insinuation was that Jane may be the bird, maybe? Hopefully we'll actually find out and it won't be a plot line that never gets This one was fun. Loved seeing Abigail come back to hang with Rosie and the gang.

    The Lumberjanes have to help Rosie with a project, and discover an invasive vine that is destroying trees in the forest. Rosie’s old friend Abigail shows up to help, and as they work through some past issues, the Janes read an old diary that Molly found written by Jane, the very first Lumberjane. It’s a nice story about holding onto friendships and taking care of nature to keep the balance. Still a fun series and looking forward to seeing how it’s eventually going to wrap up.

    My absolute favorite part was about thoughtful Forest stewardship. It's so nice when nature is advocated for and represented accurately. Well... except for the aggressive killer vines LOL Asian Dodder is pretty damn scary (if you're willing to risk the nightmares, Google for images), but thankfully it doesn't move like a tentacle monster.

    Our beloved 'janes are being punished by having to go chop wood with Rosie when there is basically a horticultural monster taking over and Abigail comes to help. This was SO CHARMING. I love love love meeting the original Jane and learning her story, and seeing Abigail and Rosie together is always dreamy. The art style wasn't great, but I got lost in the words in just a few pages.

    This arc featured knotweed as the villian and a flashback to Jane, the founder of the Lumberjanes, when she was younger and her mother ran the camp as a finishing school. Very much all things I loved.

    This felt so much more like the Lumberjanes from the early volumes and I loved it. There was also a lot of lovely background history dropped as the set-up for a lot of answers to several of the mysteries we’ve been following throughout the series. This was a volume well worth waiting for.

    This was another great addition to this graphic novel series. The action was good, but what I really loved was learning a little bit more about Abby, Rosie, and their relationship. If you're looking for a good time, I highly recommend this graphic novel and its series. This was another great addition to this graphic novel series.

    Each installment as we get closer to the end of the series is a bit more bittersweet. I love that we get more background about the camp and how it came to be, and we get to see Rosie and Abigail interact more. But I'm sad we're that much closer to the end.

    It was nice to get more of the backstory on how the Lumberjanes started. I feel like the plot has slammed to a halt in some of these last volumes to make it seem like nothing is happening and that also this one summer at camp is going on forever.

    Liked seeing Abagail again, but this one was a little shorter on plot than I would’ve liked. Could’ve used more of the historical parts, that was really interesting! Still not loving the art unfortunately.

    And now I'm sad because I had no idea that the series was already over. This was sweet, really want more stories about the original creator of the Lumberjanes camp. For now, I'll just have to start the series over again. I should be done by the time the final collected volume is released in August.

    Yessss, excellent! I am so psyched that we're getting a bit of a Lumberjanes origin story sprinkled into the plot here.
