    ok ok I think everyone has their THINGS in fiction that are hard to overlook...like for people who know more about actual science I imagine it's harder to accept comic book science, whereas I'm prepared to go "mm yes gamma radiation seems legit." however, "take...

    I spotted this while perusing through the graphic novels section of NetGalley and the cover looked so adorable! The summary promised a good ol' fashioned summer-camp-set story, reminiscent of 'Lumberjanes'. Trigger warnings: negative discussion and depiction of fat pe...

    Starts out as a story about a 90's teen who gets forced to work a summer job at a sleep-away camp by her mom to help earn some money for college, and then not only turns into a supernatural story, but also a story about young love and discovering who you really are. Very fun lit...

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an e-ARC to read and review. Which I forgot to download, and then had to buy on iBooks to read *sweats in idiocy* That was all kinds of weird, funny, and awesome. Camp Spirit is an awesome graphic novel that not only was so amazingly ...

    3.5 stars Trigger warning: homophobia (challenged), death of an animal Elodie is stuck as a camp counselor, but she knows nothing of the outdoors or children. And she's got the worst bunch of campers ever?a group of foul-mouthed, red-haired demons who weirdly take a shine ...

    *I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Though I had never heard of this graphic novel, as soon as I read the synopsis I wanted to pick it up. Set in the 90s at a summer camp that has a spooky legend woven into it's history. The main character, Elo...

    An amazing blend of Lumberjanes and Giant Days, with a splash of Steeple-level creepiness. Enjoyed the drawing style and musical theme, even if I wasn?t really a fan of those bands and never went to a summer camp in any capacity. Elodie?s chaotic group of redheads were hilarious if...

    I didn't know what to expect from this book, but it turned out to be a fab graphic novel! It's hard to put it in a box-- it's got some elements of a good romcom alongside some supernatural stuff going on, but it was a great time. The camp setting really worked for me, an...

    Give me anything with queer rep in it and I will read it! I love graphic novels and wish I read more of them; especially those with gorgeous graphics and a sapphic twist. Highly recommend Camp Spirit if that sounds similar to your interests :) ...

    I never went to a summer camp once as a kid, so I don't know why this is the case, but I'm such a sucker for summer camp stories. When I saw that this was set in the 90s, too? Sold. I'm so glad I picked this cute little graphic novel up, because I enjoyed it SO much. It ...

    A fun angsty summer camp adventure featuring creepy and goofy characters, possible paranormal shenanigans, a lovable group of rambunctious redheads, and a sweet and swoon worthy love story. The drawing and coloring was perfect. I love Lenoir?s range from quirky to serious she absolu...

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ I enjoyed this graphic novel a lot - the characters were very quirky, had an authentic voice, and the milieu of the 1990s in Canada was evocatively captured. Yes, it does read very much like a Mary Sue for t...

    1.5 stars Wow... this graphic novel was as long and boring as this quarantine... I requested this because I was a camp counselor in college and loved my summers there. But it was so unrealistic and the stakes were so low. Apparently this was supposed to be scary? I was so bored I di...

    I received an eARC from @netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This book was just straight up a fun time! I didn?t entirely know what to expect going into it which I think was a good thing; if I?d had any preconceived notions I don?t think I would have ...

    Forced by her mother to take a summer camp counselor position in the wilds of Quebec, 17-year-old Elodie is at first worried the accommodations and the kids will overwhelm her, but it's the supernatural events she thinks she sees happening that start to drive her over the edge. By...

    I couldn't help myself after seeing this took place in the 90's. I had to request it. Camp Spirit is definitely an odd graphic novel, but I really enjoyed it. Elodie doesn't want to be a camp counselor, but she gives it a try. After camp, she'll be in college. Al...

    Starts off as kind of a 90's version of Meatballs set in Quebec. Elodie is a 90's grunge kid forced by her mother to become a camp councilor. She's introverted and not an outdoor kind of girl at all. She's assigned to monitor an unruly gang of redhead girls who ask ...

    "Hate calms me. I thrive on chaos." This graphic novel sounded like a great blast from the past, something where I would get to relive my childhood but it gave me nothing but a headache. It was dreadfully boring. Who knew that urban legends and demons could be so borin...

    90s culture. Sassiness. Sarcasm. Canadian. Graphic Novel. Elodie gets forced by her Mother to work as a camp counselor over the summer and it is NOT what she wanted to do. This gothic delight loves Nirvana and rock bands, but instead is being forced to deal with people she didn&apos...

    It has the girls-at-camp-with-possible-supernatural-goings-on (but a little less friendship-is-magic) of Lumberjanes, but not so reflective and moody as Honor Girl. In the middle of all of that, though, you've got a well-plotted, tidy, thoughtful little series with entertaining ch...

    Camp Spirit is a hilarious, relatable, and creepy coming-of-age graphic novel with a snarky, grunge-loving protagonist and a sweet queer love story at its center. In the summer after senior year of high school, lodie?s mom forces her to take a job at Camp Bear Lake to earn money fo...

    OH MY GOD. What an unexpected little find this was! And I do quite literally mean ?unexpected find.? I was shelving in the kids department at B&N and I came across this comic, faced out. I loved the cute artwork and flipped through it. I realized after seeing half naked girls a...
