FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX! BOOM! BOX ANNOUNCES 'LUMBERJANES' SCOUT PATCHES



There are so many SDCC exclusive announcements coming out this week that theyre making my head spin.

Announcement number two from BOOM! Studios today, brings us LUMBERJANES SCOUT PATCHES!

 BOOM! Box, the newest imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, announced it will make available Lumberjanes Scout Patches for sale to fans, starting with an exclusive set available for purchase at the BOOM! Studios booth (#2229) at Comic-Con International, to be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA, July 24-27.

The patches are based on the unique badges that have been a prominent feature of the hit LUMBERJANES comic book series, in which the five main characters—Molly, Mal, April, Jo, and Ripley—earn them for their different achievements while away at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for “Hardcore Lady Types.”


 LUMBERJANES created by Shannon WattersGrace Ellis, and Noelle Stevenson and illustrated by Brooke Allen, has become an instant favorite for me and a must have monthly title. One of the best representations of childhood friendships and adventure.
The best part about these patches is that e
ach iron-on patch is a perfect embroidered replica of the badges featured in the book, which were designed by artist Kate Leth (BRAVEST WARRIORS, ADVENTURE TIME: SEEING RED). The set will include the following patches:
  • Naval Gauging Badge - Awarded for proficiency in canoeing...and of course, for successfully navigating monster-infested waters
  • Pungeon Master Badge - Awarded for being exceptionally pun-ny
  • Up All Night Badge - Awarded for staying awake all night and up out of your bed after lights out
  • Exclusive San Diego Comic-Con Badge - To be revealed!
