Lumberjanes Heading To Original Prose Novel Series For Middle Schoolers By Mariko Tamaki And Brooke Allen


Lumberjanes, the Eisner Award winning comic created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooke Allen, and Noelle Stevenson continues to advance in literary prestige. The comic, which is about a group of girl scouts (meaning scouts who are girls, not to be confused with potentially litigious Girl Scouts) at a Summer camp who have exciting supernatural adventures, has already been picked up for a movie, but now it's truly entering the big leagues, as any parent of young girls can tell you: an original novel series aimed at fifth graders. Award winning comic creator and writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) will write the novel, while Brooke Allen will provide illustrations.

150,000 copies of the first book will be printed for an October release from publisher Abrams, according to a report from Publishers Weekly.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
