LUMBERJANES #65 from Boom! Box is out this week and it is looking about just as chaotic as we’ve ever seen them. Here our campers have their own goals and even a new mystery on their hands. But what will come of it?

The Lumberjanes is one of those fun series that makes for a perfect escape. And Lumberjanes #65 is no exception to that rule. This issue begins a new plot, and from the looks of things, it’s going to be even more chaotic than normal. Assuming that’s even possible.

This issue spent a lot of time setting up for something big, so we just know that the next issue or two is going to be pure Lumberjanes chaos. Add to the fact that there are two favorite authors for this plot, Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh, and you just know they’re working on something major here.

The Roanoke Cabin is looking good in the preorder version of Lumberjanes #65.

There’s actually a lot going on in this issue; at least two plots that we’re aware of. And knowing the Lumberjanes, there’s possibly even more on the horizon. The issue starts off casually enough, but it doesn’t take long for us to realize that something else is going on.

After all, when a group of campers like these, you know something is up when people start sneaking off in the background. That always means something is up; no exceptions. Still, we appreciated the subtle foreshadowing done early on.

The plot then splits into two elements. On the one hand, a group of campers trying to look at a meteor shower �� which means that something else is absolutely going to happen to change those plans. And then there’s the other group…who want to hunt aliens and/or talk about their feelings – it sort of depends on who you ask.

The badge for this issue gives us several ideas for what is in store for the Lumberjanes.

The artwork for Lumberjanes #65 was interesting. The style has changed slightly from the last plot – but that’s not unusual. The creative team behind this series is constantly shifting, and fans have gotten pretty used to that fact.

Our characters seem to be even smaller – and dare we say even more adorable than usual. The style suits many of the campers, as well as the general chaos shown in this issue. So it’s basically perfect here.

Kanesha C. Bryant is the main reason behind the new art style being shown, as she took overdrawing for this plot. Meanwhile, Maarta Laiho did the coloring, and Aubrey Aiese the lettering. This team works well together, so hopefully, they’ll stick around for a while.

A casual start to a hectic issue.

Lumberjanes #65 was a fun and chaotic issue. This issue, in particular, managed to show the individual chaos our members can have, as well as many of their unique traits and qualities that make them who they are.

The issue also took a lot of time setting up the plot – so fans just know that it’s going to be a brilliant adventure for our Lumberjanes. Now we just have to wait for the next issue to see where this is going.
