    The premise is fun, but it doesn't quite succeed in what it's trying to do -- at least in the view of this reader. I fully expect others will be more forgiving, and I imagine those looking for distraction between Lumberjanes releases will find some satisfaction here. ...

    A Goonies reference wrapped in a Goonies reference covered in everything you love about the Boom! Box imprint of comics. Great first issue. ...

    This one was seriously awesome, you guys! I have been waiting months for it! Months! Since July, and it's now January. That's a loooong time to be in book limbo. I was thinking it would be a just Goonies reboot, but with female characters. And I LOVE the Goonies. LOVE it! It's one o...

    What happens when you live in the town where they filmed The Goonies and you have to deal with fans overrunning your burger shops, libraries and museums desperate for any film lore or souvenir they can find and then you find a treasure map? I actually have no idea, but I can't wait to ...

    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. ...

    Misfit City tries hard to replicate an 80s adventure movie and mostly succeeds. The characters are caricatures, but they're fun and mostly funny. The story revolves around a treasure map, although far more time is spent on sideplots than the barely-fleshed-out central plot. Really, we ...

    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 ...

    This all-girl version of the Goonies is too meta for its own good. The story takes place in the town where the movie "The Gloomies" was filmed and has a similar pirate history and threat of urban development going on. There's also has a hidden treasure that a group of local teens stumb...

    This is an obvious homage to action/adventure mystery classics like The Goonies and all in all, it does okay, but not great. I liked the art (it kind of reminds me of Faith Erin Hicks) and the effortless diversity (BOOM does this so well) but the characterization was very thin. I didn'...

    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. ...

    I'm in love and need more. I would recommend this to someone who says that they don't know what all the fuss is about graphic novels. It's wonderful in every way: plot, art, character, strong female leads of varying types and races. Plus, there's a sense of mystery and adventure to it....

    So it's Goonies but gender swapped and existing in a city where Goonies was a cultural icon already. Four girls in Cannon Cove find a mysterious treasure map and go on an adventure that is pretty blatantly winking at the reader about it being Goonies, except a little bit not. It's not ...

    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....

    A cute, fun mystery adventure comic. Nothing really deep or surprising about it, but it's an engaging, endearing and thrilling ride nonetheless, filled to the treasure trove brim with interesting female characters. Set in a cove, which was new to me in graphic novel reading, 'Misfi...

    A group of teenage girls hunting pirate treasure from a badass lady pirate in a PNW town only known for a thinly veiled version of "Goonies"? Count me in. Have those teenage girls be diverse in terms of race, sexual orientation, and body shape? Please just take all of my money immediat...

    A group of girls in a boring town famous only for being the site of the 80's kids film Gloomies (you guessed it, Goonies rip off) find a real treasure map and get chased by baddies. I enjoyed some fun digs on the town (Thar She Bowls Bowling Alley) and I enjoy Dot's character a lot, an...

    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...

    For all the kitschy goings-on of the Pacific Northwest, a treasure hunt featuring another assortment of misaligned youths whose tiny world couldn't possibly get any more boring . . . MISFIT CITY does a fair job of keeping readers invested. The narrative hook isn't remotely original (d...

    Wow, this was painfully mediocre. I didn't find anything about this compelling - not plot, not characters, and most certainly not the dialogue, which was extremely weak. Will not be continuing this series. ...

    A FEMALE GOONIES RIP OFF?! FUCK YES! I'm all over this like genital warts on a frat boy. After : 4.5 stars 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...

    AHHHHH AMAZING AMAZING!!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!?!? I always loved the Goonies and the fact that this is like a re-telling of the Goonies story but with strong female leads, more diversity, and so much suspense and satisfying treasure-hunting! I love it!! So much fun! ...
