Late to the Lumberjanes bandwagon? Don’t worry, this new starting point is perfect for you.

Brooke Allen, the artist on the first series issues, returns for a kind of origin issue. Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watters have written a story where we get to see the first day of camp for the girls and how they all met.

It’s fascinating to find out more about the background of each scout. Jo’s well-to-do fathers are pushing her to live up to her potential, but she wants a summer first of normal fun. Ripley comes from a family of like a dozen people. April is cool and competent, a good problem solver. Mal’s family doesn’t pay much attention, which has given her a lot of self-reliance, and Molly is good at making friends quickly.

Lumberjanes #13 is a terrific introduction to the characters and series with lots of adventure and humor. I feel like I know a lot more about the cast, but I want to know still more. I guess that means I should keep reading the series.
