COMIC REVIEW: LUMBERJANES #19

BOOM! Studios
Writer: Shannon Watters & Kat Leyh
Artist: Carolyn Nowak & Maarta Laiho
Price: $2.99

 

Lumberjanes #19 continues the mermaid arc, and it’s safe to say that April is thrilled about this. This issue mostly focuses on the big-haired Lumberjane as she journeys into the river to help the band be a part of the music festival.

While Noelle Stevenson will certainly be missed, the writing of the series hasn’t missed a beat so far. Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh write a fun issue that will bring delight to fans of April. Her trip underwater doesn’t actually go her way, but the adventure is still entertaining to read. The dialogue is mostly short but still manages to remain impactful and natural. Even though April is the one out and about, the rest of the gang seems to be going through more stress than she is, dreading that they might miss a big event due a few of April’s character flaws (As pointed out by Jo).

This issue was entertaining enough, but at the moment it feels like nothing really happened. This feeling is especially odd because the cliffhanger ending will carry on to the next issue. It just doesn’t feel as fulfilling as other issues. Hopefully the series finds more of a spark next week as the characters deal with the big problems that came out of April’s adventure.

Carolyn Nowak continues to draw this arc of Lumberjanes with her highly expressive and very entertaining style. Nowak’s characters all look great, with a dramatic portion of their expressions coming solely from their eyes. April’s eyes as she spazzes over mermaid life are enough to make this issue hilarious. Maarta Laiho’s colors are vibrant and complement Nowak’s work nicely. The backgrounds are mostly blue space, but the colors and shades are done so that the panels avoid looking too bland.

Lumberjanes #19 is great for fans of April, but the issue doesn’t offer much else to anyone else. There isn’t as much group interaction which somewhat takes away from the magic that readers are used to with the series, but it’s still a fun time and easy to recommend to all ages.

While it doesn't have a strong story, this is still a fun a issue
