Faith Erin Hicks Camps Out with Oversized 'Lumberjanes: Beyond Bay Leaf' Special

 Calling all Lumberjumbies! BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is delighted to announce the first-ever Lumberjanes special in the October debut of Lumberjanes: Beyond Bay Leaf #1. Hardcore lady-types Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl, Friends with Boys) and introducing artist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell perfectly capture the Lumberjane spirit in their oversized, self-contained story featuring April, Jo, Mal, Molly, and Ripley as they try to figure out the mystery of the ghost pony and earn their Beyond Bay Leaf pin.

 

“We’ve had so many wonderful, talented creators join us at the Lumberjanes campfire, and we’re thrilled to have Faith back for our first oversized special,” said BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing Filip Sablik. “The Lumberjanes team is dedicated to creating a positive, empowering comic for all readers, and Faith and Rosemary certainly contribute to that mission.”

 

Lumberjanes is the New York Times best-selling, award winning series about five butt-kicking, rad teenage girls wailing on monsters and solving a mystery with the whole world at stake. They’re determined to have an awesome summer together...and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Winner of three Eisner Awards and nominated for a GLAAD Award, Lumberjanes has been praised for its portrayal of queer characters in an all-ages comic.

 

Lumberjanes: Beyond Bay Leaf #1 contains an oversized 48 pages and arrives in comic shops on October 14th with a main cover by Nick Sumida (Snackies) for the price of $4.99.
