It got even harder for Corey, Criss, and Coady, three sisters who make up a band called the Creepies, when an accident left Corey with a scarred face, Criss in a wheelchair, and Coady dead. But they can't give up now, when the band's just started getting attention. So all three of them keep going, including Coady. Maybe being a ghost will make her an even better drummer.

LumberjanesGothamAcademy_feat

The upcoming crossover between DC's Gotham Academy and Boom Box's Lumberjanes is on track to be the most highly anticipated team-up of the year --- and considering that we've already seen the cast of GI Joe in a karate tournament against the world warriors of Street Fighter and a Batman/TMNT story where Mr. Freeze was turned into an actual polar bear, that's saying something.

Point being, anticipation is running pretty high. So high, in fact, that the first issue of Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy has racked up an impressive roster of nine covers, including retailer-exclusive variants from artists like Veronica Fish, LJ co-creator Brooke Allen, and more. Check them out below (along with the five regular covers)!

Lumberjanes_021_feat

As the latest guest artist to head out to camp with the Lumberjanes, Carey Pietsch is well qualified. Not only does she know her way around a campfire, but her previous comic work includes a series of self-published mini-comics that combine exactly the sense of grandly fantastical and intimately personal that has made Lumberjanes one of the most important hit comics of the past couple of years.
Pietsch joins writers Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh for the latest Lumberjanes arc, featuring an encounter with a possible werewolf, starting with issue #21, in stores this week. ComicsAlliance chatted to Pietsch to find out how she landed the gig, and what sort of experience she has in the wilderness!

The Lumberjanes Embark On An Aquatic Adventure with Watters, Leyh and Nowak [Preview]

Lumberjanes_018_feat

As a wise crab once observed, the seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake. That's the sort of sensible advise that might help resolve the rivalry between two mermaids in next week's Lumberjanes #18, from the creative team of Shannon Watters, Kat Leyh, and Carolyn Nowak.

Of course, before we get to the advice, we might want to account for the presence of mermaids and other strange mer-creatures in the lake. And before we get to that, there's the promise of ducks, and a donut inflatable, and an awesome rock 'n' roll vest to encounter. Check out a five-page preview kicking off the next great Lumberjanes adventure!
