    Lumberjanes plus Roller Derby equals perfection! This was awesome. It was bound to happen and it finally did happen. The Lumberjanes have to win back a tree house that the yeti's lost to the sasquatches when they went grocery shopping. The stakes are roller derby- winner take all. It's pretty awesome. It's also a very lumberjaney type Roller Derby too. The characters are drawn a lot differently and I didn't like that. Rosie really looks different. She got a whole lot thinner. One thing I do love Lumberjanes plus Roller Derby equals perfection! This was awesome. It was bound to happen and it finally did happen.

It's also a very lumberjaney type Roller Derby too. The characters are drawn a lot differently and I didn't like that. Rosie really looks different. She got a whole lot thinner. One thing I do love is that it was a heat wave and everyone was melting from the heat. Then they got involved with Roller derby and not a drop of sweat was given off over all the exertion. Funny. Ripley was awesome, their roller derby names were awesome and Jen was pretty awesome as the ref. The story felt short and sweet, but it was epic. It was the antidote I needed at this moment. I do wonder if this will go on forever, or if this will eventually have an end to it's run. This is another one that would make a fun and campy TV series. There is plenty to go off of.

    I always say it, Lumberjanes is a bit up and down for me, it’s a rollercoaster series. This particular volume… wasn’t one of the better ones. As always, I loved the girls, and I love the addition of Barney too, but having an already established relationship with the characters (as we are on volume 9 now) doesn’t excuse a thoroughly lacking plot. I felt like there was no substance to this volume at all, and was mightily disappointed with it. There was no action, no mystery, nothing to solve… it w I always say it, Lumberjanes is a bit up and down for me, it’s a rollercoaster series. This particular volume… wasn’t one of the better ones.

    I'm confused.. do have a roller derby league or not?! Because I wouldn't mind this comic turning into a sports manga. Am I the only one that thought so?

    The book kicks off with a one shot: is Diane up to her old tricks? Nice to occasionally see a story focusing on characters other than the Roanokes. Then we’re on to our main story. The yetis are kicked out of their treehouse by a pack of sasquatches, so the Roanokes come to the rescue by challenging them to a roller derby match. Honestly, that sentence really does make perfect sense, no matter what you may think. I am not off my meds!

Honestly, that sentence really does make perfect sense, no matter what you may think. I am not off my meds! Put that straitjacket down … This far into the series, Lumberjanes is running like a well-oiled machine. It could probably keep going indefinitely, especially if they maintain this high level of quality. It's not building to a climax because it's not the sort of series that has a definite endpoint. It will either eventually run out of steam, or become a beloved institution like Archie or something. Continuing indefinitely isn't a bad thing, but it does make reviewing individual volumes difficult. Eventually one runs out of variations on, “This series rocks!”, “Yay, Ripley!”, “I wish scouting had been this cool when I was younger,” and the like. It's a pleasing blend of fantasy, comedy, adventure, and action that shows no signs of slowing down, and it is Highly recommended!

    This was so good!! I loved that the Yetis were back and I loved the rep! Barney is also one of my favourite characters, though they didn't get too much action in the later issues, I loved the beginning with Barney <3

    The Lumberjanes are back at it and some old friends, the Yetis, have come back to join them. This time though the Lumberjanes are in a high stakes race, roller derby style. This is still an adorable series, that is a fun, quick read. Definitely still enjoying the series and it is a nice break from all of the dark and gritty stories out there.

    This has the feel of classic Lumberjanes. Crisp storytelling, full of heart and hijinks with a concise ending.

    In Volume #9 we have the Lumberjanes solving one mystery of the melting ice-cream as they learn that someone is stealing the camp's power supply. The girls travel along and find Yetis and Sasquatches. The yetis have been kicked out of their treehouse by the Sasquatches. Mal finds an old roller rink and decides to set up a competition for the Yeti's to get their house back. The Roanoke cabin aka the Lumberjanes will challenge the Sasquatches to a game of roller derby.

The other thing that happens in this book is that the Zodiac cabin is complete with Diane and Barney becoming more accepted of the Lumberjanes camp. I did enjoy this book but felt it had lacked a bit of the usual Lumberjane mischief and mayhem. Stay tuned for Volume #10 to come on The Phantom Paragrapher.

    Reading new Lumberjanes feels more like rereading the series. Even this book's story is a bit better than the previous one, the schema is still the same. And the subtle (not all the time, though) LGBT+ propaganda leads to the point that it's a bit over the top - everybody here is this way or not specified (until it is specified in a convenient LGBT way). That leads to the world, where being "something else" is OK (and that's right), but you must be like that or you are not cool one.

    Story This series continues to delite. Sasquatches playing roller derby is not a thing I ever thought I needed to read about, but apparently I did, and it was fantastic. Artwork I think they switched artists again. I can't be sure anymore at this point. Thankfully through all the changes I continue to enjoy the artwork.

    Read as single issues. I think first time I’ve given lumberjanes only three stars. Hate, hate the art. It made the whole story ugly. (The story was cute, so it wasn’t all bad. But. Damn. They’ve been scraping the barrel with artists, lately.)

I don’t even want to think about the idea of the series eventually ending…so let’s just pretend that that could never happen!

The lighter tones of this series have always made this series perfect for an escape. Sure, the fantastical and whimsical elements help too, but mostly it’s the upbeat plots and characters that help free us from our daily woes. (view spoiler)[ I just love how happy and caring the Lumberjanes always are. It doesn’t matter what the issue is, they’ve always got each other’s backs and they will stubbornly find their way through any mess. And, like any volume, our Lumberjanes naturally found a way to get themselves into a bit of trouble and keep everyone busy at the same time. The first issue is probably the most heartwarming issue of the entire series so far – which I feel like is saying something. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but it’s basically all about Barney and everyone’s reaction to them joining their camp. It’s cute, it’s sweet, and it’s got some funny points too. So it’s perfect. The rest of the volume focuses more on one single plot, which is always fun. Do you remember the Yetis? Well, they’re back. And there are more of them than before. That probably wouldn’t have been a problem, had it not been for…well…the best way to describe them would be cabin stealing hipster Yetis. Yeah, that fits. Granted, the Yetis that had been watching the place weren’t exactly doing their job either, but we probably should have seen that twist coming, right? And Rosie certainly should have seen that coming. But, that’s how it goes at Lumberjanes camp. Anyway, one thing leads to another and before you know it the whole camp is outside a death trap cheering on the Roanoke cabin (plus some other Lumberjanes, of course) as they fight the Yetis…in a roller derby match! Okay, I know how that sounds, but it’s actually really funny and interesting, I promise. I mean, it’s the Lumberjanes. Leave it to them to find a creative solution to the problem. And it’s probably better than trying to actually fight the Yetis. Plus, these guys are harmless – they’re jerks, but they’re harmless. I loved this volume. For one thing, it was nice to see Barney get formally accepted into the Lumberjanes, as well as other the other details that came from that. Seeing the team play roller derby was fun too. I’m not sure if they’ll bring their new roller derby ring up again, but I kind of hope so. (hide spoiler)] For more reviews, check out Quirky Cat's Fat Stacks

Carolyn Nowak returns to the series after a lengthy absence for these four issues, and her style remains, as ever, pitch perfect.

    While this volume is still a fun and light-hearted read, it felt as though it was lacking something. Everything just felt a little off about it, from the charactisation of the girls to its art-style. This volume doesn't really add anything to what little ongoing plot that the series has. It just takes the form of a roller derby against some Sasquatch. While I would still recommend this series to middle graders and young adults, I really do think that it needs to find its focus sometime soon.

The stories are quite as moving as they once were and don't seem to to be going anywhere fast. Still, it's hard not to like a series that contains such a great cast of strong female protagonists. I'm still a fan and can't wait to see what adventures the girls will have next.

    Another fabulous outing for the Lumberjanes! The representation within this universe continues to be amazing, adding the adorable Barney into the mix. I love that everyone is simply accepting, but also not afraid to ask questions. The roller derby arc was fun, though it isn't as exciting or memorable as some of the previous arcs. I always love Mal and Molly getting some cuteness. I didn't care for the art in this volume as much, as it felt almost rushed or purposefully loose. Just not my style.

    I just freaking love these! I love the magical realism in them and how it all comes together like it is super normal and how they can have a rolling derby tournament with a bunch of yeti's. Overall another great friendship story and girls sticking up for girls.

    Always fun to visit with the Roanoke's and I love Roller Derby. But this one felt a little flat to me, partially cause of not liking the illustrations and the plot felt very low stakes. But a nice time, all the same.
