The character development between mal and Molly was really satisfying because ever since the first book they had a thing, and now that thing is a ship. Also the introduction of new characters were interesting, so much so that another stand alone book could be written about them. Over all plot and development is definitely 10/10.

This is the best issue yet. It started out with a pretty lame ghost story, but hey, thats Jen for you. The author never explains the Mal+Molly thing going on, but I have a hunch. This is an amazing book, but don't forget to read the other two books, because this would be really confusing. Please read! Awesome book!

This volume is a bit less frantic than the previous. That mad energy is still there but there's less chaos in the panels, which I sort of miss, but I kind of liked the arc we had going here. Two main stories are happening here over these issues instead of a bunch of smaller ones. One involves Mal and Molly's first date which goes from picnic to other dimension with the bear-woman and dinosaurs very quickly. This story is very cute and we get to spent a bit of time with the both of them and hear them speak about life (or lack thereof) outside of camp.

Meanwhile back at said camp April, Ripley, and Jo have promised not to go adventuring without the other two. So they decide to try and get as many boring badges as possible. This goes, of course, completely awry. Again we get to know the girls a little bit and the bit of downtime between mythical beings, raptors, and other stuff is a nice pause.

The only issue that is a little bit all over the place, which makes sense considering we have a bunch of different artists, is the first issue of the collection (#9) where the girls are looking to earn their "If You've Got It, Haunt It" badge via telling ghost stories (each story has a different artist). That's one where the frenzy and crowding maybe got a little bit much for me but, really, it was still fun.

This volume of the Lumberjanes series started off a little weak, with some lame ghost stories that didn't translate well to the comic medium. But past that first story, we get a Day Off at camp, and this is when the graphic novel shines, especially in comparison to volume 2. In this volume, we get a lot of action and adventure, but along the way we also get to know the characters a lot more, and begin to really enjoy them as individuals, and not just a group. So far this was my favorite volume in the series.

A fun volume, if a bit frenetic for my taste. Am I just getting old?

Another great tale of the Lumberjanes.
