Exclusive First Look at ‘Lumberjanes: True Colors’
We’ve got something special for you on this summer Wednesday: A first look at the third Lumberjanes graphic novel, Lumberjanes: True Colors, by writer Lilah Sturges (Lev Grossman’s The Magicians), artist polterink (Lumberjanes: The Shape of Friendship), and letterer Jim Campbell. Here’s the 411:
At Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqual Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types, being yourself has a long tradition of being celebrated, and no one knows that better than Ripley, who has spent a summer going wherever the wind takes her. But sometimes going against the grain is starting to feel like she’s going against her friends, and Ripley’s not sure if being unique is all it’s cracked up to be.
This book completes the trilogy that began with Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass and continued with Lumberjanes: The Shape of Friendship, which I mentionedin my latest Stellar Panels column about summer camp stories. All three are by Sturgis and polterink, and they all have a lovely watercolor look with soft grays and a different accent color in each volume.
Lumberjanes: True Colors will be available in comic shops on October 14 and in bookstores on October 20. Enjoy!
