Lumberjanes, Vol. 5: Band Together by Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Carolyn Nowak,Grace Ellis, Brooke A. Allen

The first issue of this was a stand alone one-shot about the day all the girls arrived at camp, drawn by the original artist and was fantastic! ‘Unfortunately it both reminded me of how utterly in love I was with the idea of this book when I first started reading it and how it might have lost a little bit of that magic. Don’t get me wrong, I still really enjoy the books and love this cast of characters to death but it seems to be missing a little something.

Once again we have a new artist and though I didn’t dislike their style, their take on the characters was quite different from ones before and I felt it took a few issues to get used to it. 

The story about rock n roll mermaids was good though. I especially likes how it focused on a friendship which had fallen apart and how difficult it can be to make up with a friend when you have been fighting for a long time. Friendship isn’t always smooth and I don’t think platonic relationships are explored in enough dept in fiction, especially children fiction.
