Discover The All New Original Graphic Adventure in November 2019
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at LUMBERJANES: THE SHAPE OF FRIENDSHIP, an all-new comic book arriving in comic shops worldwide in November 2019.
LUMBERJANES: THE SHAPE OF FRIENDSHIP is the all new original graphic novel reuniting the acclaimed Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass team of writer Lilah Sturges and artist polterink. When the Lumberjanes discover the hiding place of a group of magical creatures called Pookas, they think they’ve found new friends. But what they don’t know is that the Pookas are tired of hiding, and they’ve found the perfect way to join the outside world…by impersonating the ‘Janes themselves and taking over Camp! To reclaim their identities, the ’Janes will have to work together to remember who they really are…and to help another group of friends accept themselves, too, in a story about looking inside yourself and learning to love who you meet there.
Launched in 2014 under BOOM! Studios’ YA-focused BOOM! Box imprint by series co-creators Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson, Lumberjanes was originally solicited as a limited series, but the overwhelming response from fans transformed it into an ongoing series that has become a New York Times best-seller, earned numerous nominations for prestigious awards including the GLAAD Media Award and the Eisner Awards, and have even crossed over with heroes from the DC Comics Universe (in Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy). The Lumberjanes have expanded to middle-grade novels at Abrams Books, a diverse array of merchandise from pins to patches, and a feature film in development at 20th Century Fox.
LUMBERJANES: THE SHAPE OF FRIENDSHIP is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning BOOM! Box imprint, home to groundbreaking original series such as Lumberjanes by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson, Giant Days by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Max Sarin, The Avant-Guards by Carly Usdin and Noah Hayes, Smooth Criminals by Kiwi Smith, Kurt Lustgarten, and Leisha Riddell, Fence by C.S.
