BOOM! Studios is proud to continue BOOM! Box Jam, a week-long spotlight on the best YA comic books and graphic novels from the award-winning imprint in the coming months, with your first look at LUMBERJANES: THE INFERNAL COMPASS, the historic first original graphic novel in the history of the series that’s sold over a million copies worldwide from Eisner Award-nominated writer Lilah Sturges (Jack of Fables, Justice Society of America), rising-star artist Polterink (Dressed for Death) and LUMBERJANES: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S SCHEME #1 from writer Nicole Andelfinger (Adventure Time Comics) and artist Maddi Gonzalez (Dream Daddy), along with a story by writer/artist Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance).
Arriving in stores August 2018, The Midsummer Masquerade is here and it’s not exactly a dream. With the Masquerade just around the corner, the Lumberjanes take charge in planning the festivities. But someone is sabotaging the preparations, and with the camp in disarray, the rest of the Lumberjanes scramble to save the day. And of course now all the decorations are starting to disappear. Also features a back up story written and illustrated by Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker: Hellcat)
LUMBERJANES: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S SCHEME #1 features a main cover by Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) and a variant cover by Brittney Williams.
“Nicole [Andelfinger] and Maddi [Gonzalez] introduce the Lumberjanes to their biggest challenge yet: organization and a deadline!” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “I always love it when the Lumberjanes have an excuse to dressed up, the Masquerade is the perfect excuse. I can’t wait for fans to pick up this issue!”
Arriving in stores October 2018, LUMBERJANES: THE INFERNAL COMPASS features a stunning cover by Alexa Sharpe and presents an all-new story at Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for Hardcore Lady-Types when Mal, Ripley, Molly, April & Jo become separated during an orienteering outing thanks to a mysterious compass. While Molly begins to feel more and more insecure about the effect of her relationship with Mal on the other girls, a lonely woman explorer is trying to steal the compass…with the help of some weirdly polite automaton butlers, of course.
“My favorite stories are love stories – and I can’t imagine one sweeter than what Lilah and Polterink have created for Mal and Molly,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Whether you’re one of the millions of Lumberjanes fans worldwide or new to this incredible world, everyone will find themselves with goofy grins on their faces as they turn each page of LUMBERJANES: THE INFERNAL COMPASS.”
