Jackalope Springs Eternal (Lumberjanes, Vol. 12) Review

    Lumberjanes went down with quality and originality of stories quite fast, but I was missing to realise the art went down too. Got simpler, easier, dull. And while the true execution of the comics was like a roller-coaster, the visual side went slowly down. One thing is the covers. They are usually brilliant. But comics art got very simplistic and except cute monsters, it lacks, especially in people. Anyway, Lumberjanes has usually nice ideas, and even they are not really unique, they're fun.

But never really well used, elaborated. Lumberjanes plays with that like a toddler with the toys. Drop one, take another look, abandon this one, focus on this here... The idea about a girl and her pets was a cool, but very short and superficial effort. Here and there is more to the Lumberjanes than meets the eye, but the rest is eventually still just comics for the kids.

    I hate how far the trades are behind the comics. The issues are at least two full trades past this point. (Read as separates, obvi.)

    It’s fitting that the title of this volume is called JACKALOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL, because after the sub-par quality of the last two volumes I was ready to give up on the series, and this volume was going to be the decider. I’m happy to say that I enjoyed the two storylines happening (even if they really didn’t have much to do with each other?!?!). OTOH, the art continues to be painfully bad. I’m sorry Ayme Sotuyo!! The alternative covers illustrated by Michelle Wong make me mad about what we COULD It’s fitting that the title of this volume is called JACKALOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL, because after the sub-par quality of the last two volumes I was ready to give up on the series, and this volume was going to be the decider.

    After last volume's attack on the camp, we see the girls recovering but they seem worried and sad so Jen finds a new project to get them out there again. While searching for a jackalope they meet Emmy.My favorite thing in this volume was Jen becoming more adventurous for the sake of her girls.This arc only lasted for 3 issues and in the last one we see a story about the Camp Newsletter.I really felt the last issue of this volume was there to fill up the empty space. Maybe it would have been bett After last volume's attack on the camp, we see the girls recovering but they seem worried and sad so Jen finds a new project to get them out there again.

Maybe it would have been better if the newsletter story was interspersed with the big story of the volume.

    Read as individuals. I'm starting not to love these like I first did. It seems it's not the same quality of content. But I still read because I love the characters and I have hope lol. Not even the illustrations are as good IMO

    Jen was actually the ones dragging the girls into adventure this volume which was a welcome change. I thought Emmy and her herd of misfits were really cute. Also liked the story with Diane and Cassie.

    I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as I did earlier volumes in the series.

    A cute volume about the Lumberjanes getting back on their feet after the chaos of the previous volume. I liked the guest character and all the cool creatures that were in the this one. Definitely wish the over-arching plot of this series moved a bit faster though. I often can't really remember what is going on with it because there's so many little diversion stories in between.
