Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has revealed a first-look preview at Lumberjanes: Farewell to Summer 2020 FCBD Special, giving you a free look at a book you can get for free this May, which is odd, since May comes right before the beginning of Summer. Seasonal discrepancies notwithstanding, Lubmberjanes: Farewell to Summer is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, especially for confused young readers who arrive at a comic shop on a special day touting comics for free only to find most of them are just advertisement for comics you have to pay for later. Audrey Aiese, Dozerdraws, Maarta Laiho, Carolyn Nowak, polterink, Sarah Stern, and Brooklyn Allen are the creators featured in this comic.
Below, check out the press release and preview.
