New comic of the day: LUMBERJANES #1

While I don’t know what was the book of MoCCA at ECCC it was DEFINITELY Lumberjanes, which launched in a convention exclusive edition. With superstar Noelle Stevenson, and new talents Grace Ellis and Brooke Allen plus variant covers by Boom’s tumblr brigade all-stars like Kate Leth, Maddie FLores, Kalie Ciesemeir, etc this book has “hot hot hot” written all over it.

Throw in a “Buffy meets Gravity Falls’ Storyline and you have the modern comic book in motion.

Noelle Stevenson’s LUMBERJANES debuts in April and here are the covers

Boom is expanding its indie-focused BOOM! Box imprint in April with Lumberjanes, by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis, with art by Brooke Allen. It’s the story of five campers who spend the summer having adventures with yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons. Its described as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls,” which is a slick way of saying…spooky camping out mysteries! Stevenson (Nimona) is a well-known creator, Ellis is a newcomer and Allen was the cartoonist on A Home for Mr. Easter, a quirky book that I enjoyed but didn’t get too much attention when it came out.

BOOM! Box is set up to feature original comics in the same vein as Boom hugely popular Cartoon Network titles. The first was THE MIDAS FLESH by Ryan North, Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline. There is a surplus of insanely talented people to work on this kind of material and Boom! it seems to us, is wise to take advantage of this pool.

Here are the three covers for the first issue — this looks delightful!
