Oh my Bessie Coleman! Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types is, as promised, chock full of hardcore ladies. And wolves in tuxedos. And multi-headed serpents. And pookas. And cave snakes?!?!?! This is cute, spooky, outdoorsy, gay, absurd, and frankly one of the most delightful graphic novels I’ve ever read. You’ll fall in love with the occupants of Roanoke Cabin instantly, I promise: that’s girl power!
The Shape of Friendship pits the Lumberjanes against the ultimate opponent: themselves. Or at least, shapeshifting creatures that look like them. But can anybody imitate their moxie and go-get-’em attitude, and can the ‘Janes get back to camp to foil their doppelgangers? Illustrated in shades of gray and hot pink, this raucous story about being your truest self will have you on your feet and cheering by the time it’s over. – Terry
While adventuring in the woods, Jo, Mal, Molly, April, and Ripley discover the hiding place of a group of magical creatures called Pookas and they think they’ve found new friends. But what they don’t know is that the Pookas are tired of hiding, and they’ve found the perfect way to join the outside world…by impersonating the Lumberjanes themselves and taking over Camp! To reclaim their identities, the ’Janes will have to work together to remember who they really are…and to help another group of friends accept themselves, too, in a story about looking inside yourself and learning to love who you meet there.
