On Easter Sunday at WonderCon 2014, BOOM! Studios hosted a panel on "Redefining All-Ages Comics." The panel included Senior Editor Shannon Watters, writer/artist Noelle Stevenson (who co-created Lumberjanes), and the co-writers of Bee and PuppyCatNatasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson.
From Nimona creator Noelle Stevenson, first-time comic author Grace Ellis, and artist Brooke Allen comes Lumberjanes! Produced by Boom! Studios, this first book is a delightful camp adventure in the weird-but-true style of Psychonauts and other such strange adventures.
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.
Noelle Stevenson, aka Gingerhaze, is an accomplished creator. She creates the weekly webcomic Nimona and her latest outing is the fabulously named Lumberjanes from Boom. But you see, that all amounts to nothing when entering certain comic book shops.
