“A sharp, smart, and most of all fun celebration of sisterhood.”—Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“The heady feel of camp nostalgia with solid story-telling and wonderful art.”—The Mary Sue

 “Really just a pleasure to read.”—School Library Journal

BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at the Lumberjanes finale, LUMBERJANES: END OF SUMMER #1, from cartoonist Kat Leyh (Snapdragon), co-writer and co-creator Shannon Watters, artists Kanesha C. Bryant (Encyclopedia Lumberjanica) and Alexa Bosy (Lumberjanes: Somewhere That’s Green #1), as well as returning co-creator and series artist Brooklyn Allen, concluding the series in a special oversized issue.

In the final chapter of the “End of Summer” epic event, the brave campers and counselors of Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types are in the fight of their lives against the mysterious force known as the Grey. Molly has discovered a deep and ancient forest magic which she hopes to use to protect her friends and the home they’ve all found at camp. But will she be strong enough to save everyone in the camp and the forest? Or is the all-encompassing, all-erasing Grey just too powerful for anyone to stop?

Launched in 2014 under BOOM! Studios’ YA-focused BOOM! Box imprint by series co-creators Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson, and Brooklyn Allen, 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 published by Amulet Books and a diverse array of merchandise from pins to patches. A Lumberjanes animated show is currently in development at HBO Max.

Print copies of LUMBERJANES: END OF SUMMER #1, featuring cover art by series writer Kat Leyh, and artists Harriet Moulton (Lumberjanes) and Tillie Walden (On a Sunbeam), will be available on December 2, 2020, at local comic book shops (use to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
