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.

This New York Times bestselling series continues with Lumberjanes #9, “If You Got It, Haunt It Badge;” #10, “Abscence Make the Heart Grow Fondant Badge;” #11, “Go Ball-istic Badge;” and #12, “Oldie but Goodie Badge.”

Collects Lumberjanes No. 9-12.

I’m a little sad to say that the third volume of Lumberjanes turned out to be my least favorite of the series. It’s still good and fun, hence the three stars, but it wasn’t nearly as good or as fun as the first two volumes.

The major issue I had with this volume was the abrupt change in art style. While I really enjoyed the art in the first two volumes, this one has a different illustrator and it shows. The characters look very different and it almost felt like I was reading fanfiction of Lumberjanes rather than a real Lumberjanes collection.

Still, I enjoy the feminist message, I enjoy the wacky hijinks that these hardcore lady types get themselves into, and the little romance that’s developing made me smile. I will eventually pick up the next volume in this series, but I’m not rushing to find it.
