This is the second episode of my new YouTube show, Indie Series Spotlight!
Any conversation about my favorite recent independent and creator-owned series would be incomplete without a mention of Lumberjanes – a consistent favorite of all three members of our household.
When I first picked up the first volume of Lumberjanes I was seriously unimpressed. It seemed like short-attention-span theatre. Every character seemed to spend their entire time yelling, or occasionally punching monsters on the head.
It wasn’t until I started reading the series out loud to EV6 that the charm of the series and its characters became more apparent to me, and I quickly discovered that Volume 2 recast the series as a mythologically-rooted mystery with some seriously deep continuity. From that point forward, we’ve all been hooked!
The first half of this video is a general discussion of Lumberjanes and the second half is a story-specific portion full of spoilers!
