As you can probably guess, we were extremely excited when we first heard about Boom! Studios new title Lumberjanes, the creator-owened, women-led series about five girls at summer camp who fight yetis and do other awesome stuff. Above is a new variant cover to the first issue from Lauren Zukauskas, hit the jump for another and a few more details.
Madeleine Flores did the art on this one…
And here’s the release from Boom with all the pertinent info:
Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce the April debut of LUMBERJANES, the second title to join the publisher’s newest imprint, BOOM! Box. Written by Noelle Stevenson (Nimona) and Grace Ellis, and illustrated by Brooke Allen (A Home for Mr. Easter), LUMBERJANES follows the quirky, spooky adventures of five campers as they fight crazy critters, solve mysteries, and enjoy “friendship to the max!”
“LUMBERJANES is one of those series that just embodies how much fun comics can be,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We’re excited to have it join THE MIDAS FLESH under our new BOOM! Box imprint where essentially, anything goes!”
WHY WE LOVE IT: Five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjanes scout camp…defeating yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons…what’s not to love?!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls and features five butt-kicking, rad teenage girls wailing on monsters and solving a mystery with the whole world at stake. And with the talent of acclaimed cartoonist Noelle Stevenson, talented newcomer Grace Ellis writing, and Brooke Allen on art, this is going to be a spectacular series that you won’t want to miss.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together…and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Not only is it the second title launching in our new BOOM! Box imprint but LUMBERJANES is one of those punk rock, love-everything-about-it stories that appeals to fans of basically all excellent things.
