Exclusive: First Look at ‘Encyclopedia Lumberjanica’
We’re kicking off the week with an exclusive preview of Encyclopedia Lumberjanica, a celebration in words and pictures of the real hard-core lady-types who have changed history and inspired the fictional Lumberjanes. Check out entries on Octavia Butler, bell hooks, Mary Anning, and more in this preview. The creative team for the book is writer Susan Coiner-Collier and artists Kaiti Infante (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Alexia Khodanian (Lumberjanes), Julia Madrigal (Giant Days), and Kanesha C. Bryant (Lumberjanes), and the book will be published by BOOM! Studios under its BOOM! Box imprint in September 2020. Enjoy!
