Next Lumberjanes Original Graphic Novel Promoted for Free Comic Book Day
Expanding from the comic series, collections, and prose books (and even a film in development — that would be a fun casting game), Boom! Box put out a Lumberjanes original graphic novel, The Infernal Compass, recently.
Now they’ve announced a second, The Shape of Friendship, by the same creative team, writer Lilah Sturges and artist polterink (aka Claudia Rinofner).
It is due in stores next November, but the first chapter will be printed as one of Boom!’s Free Comic Book Day offerings. The Lumberjanes: The Shape of Friendship FCBD Special will be available in participating comic book stores on May 4, 2019. Here’s the description:
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.
Mal, Ripley, Molly, April & Jo will have to work together, using the power of friendship, in order to reclaim their lives and teach the Pookas that sometimes your best self is your true self.
