Ahhh this is the CUTEST comic! Here are some things it has:
—a cast full of girls of various races and sizes
—references to a movie that is basically The Goonies
—a dog who plays poker
—a treasure map and A LADY PIRATE
—written by the woman who wrote 10 Things I Hate About You AND Legally Blonde!
—adventures and fun!
SO CUTE. J'adore, le dessin est très sympa, l'histoire choupie et pleine d'aventure, j'adore j'adore j'adore.
So cute and fun! Loved the setting and the girl gang. I want to watch all the Pirate movies now.
RIP OFF?! FUCK YES! I'm all over this like genital warts on a frat boy.
There isn't much to dislike here - the kinda Goonies rip off Gloomers references, the art, the all female leads. If I were to come up with a graphic novel this is what I'd be aiming for. But man do I wish I had waited til more issues were out. I have very little patience and it's just started getting exciting.
It's like Lumberjanes with an older cast.
It's like all those 80s, 90s, etc. movies with male groups of friends that you grew up wishing GIRLS HAD.
It's like... basically all you could ask for.
I do wish the characters had a bit more depth, there are a lot of them and they don't get developed too much, but it is only 4 issues.
I have high hopes for this series. Very Very high hopes!
I loved the art in this but as far as character and plot, it felt like it was trying really hard to be Lumberjanes. The characters, setting, and plot could have been better developed. The action started happening before I felt invested in the characters and cared what happened to them.
It didn’t knock my socks off, but it was cute enough. I liked the art and the setting, and the characters were diverse and likeable.
I was hoping for snappier dialogue, and it was irritating that the book ended on a cliffhanger. Still, I think fans of Lumberjanes would enjoy.
I really liked the art style of this and I adored these characters, but I couldn't quite sink into the story. I definitely will be continuing with this series, though.
This book desperately wants to be a madcap adventure filled with pirates, hidden treasure and quirky female protagonists. The adventure is mild, and the characters really don't consist of much beyond their quirks. It seems more like a book trying to get on a bandwagon (see: Lumberjanes, Ms. Marvel, etc.) rather than one trying to blaze its own path.
