A New Comic From Hope Larson and Brittney Williams – Does Boom! Have Another Lumberjanes In The Box For 2016

Boom! Studios, through their Boom! Box imprint, scored their biggest original hit in 2014 with Lumberjanes. The first collection of the comic has sold 100,000 copies thus far, been optioned for feature film development by 20th Century Fox,and won a couple of Eisners and Harveys along the way.
I understand that in Spring 2016, Boom! Box will be launching a new original series from the creative team of Hope Larson and Brittney Williams. Larson's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time was a #2 New York Times Bestseller and winner of an Eisner Award among other accolades. Larson has been hugely successful in the graphic novel space in the book market, but largely absent from single issue comics over the past few years. Pairing her with Brittney Williams, who will be coming off the Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat series at Marvel, looks like a recipe for success.

From what I've seen and heard, it looks like this could be Boom!'s next Lumberjanes.
