LOS ANGELES, CA (August 12, 2020) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at LUMBERJANES: TRUE COLORS, an all-new original graphic novel by New York Times best selling author Lilah Sturges (Lev Grossman’s The Magicians), acclaimed artist polterink (Lumberjanes: The Shape of Friendship), and letterer Jim Campbell, taking Ripley – and us – on a journey to discover who she truly is, and reminding us that showing others your true colors can help you see theirs, too.
At Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqual Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types, being yourself has a long tradition of being celebrated, and no one knows that better than Ripley, who has spent a summer going wherever the wind takes her. But sometimes going against the grain is starting to feel like she’s going against her friends, and Ripley’s not sure if being unique is all it’s cracked up to be.
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 (which it has won twice), 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.
LUMBERJANES: TRUE COLORS is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning BOOM! Box imprint, home to groundbreaking original series such as Giant Days by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Max Sarin; b.b. free by Gabby Rivera and Royal Dunlap; Fence by C.S. Pacat and Johanna the Mad; Goldie Vance by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams, and The Avant-Guards by Carly Usdin and Noah Hayes.
