The 25 Best Moments from Lumberjanes #1 – #17

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

While I have no doubts that Lumberjanes will continue to be awesome, I can’t help but pause to mourn the initial dream team of Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, and Brooke Allen. As we bid farewell (and CONGRATULATIONS) to co-writer Stevenson, we take a moment to look back at the 25 best moments (or at least, my personal favorites) from Lumberjanes 1 through 17. (I was going to try to do 10, but… well.)

Fair warning: contains spoilers for the series thus far.
