‘Lumberjanes’ #1 Is Your New Lumberjam [Review]

Lumberjanes #1, Boom! Box

I've been excited about Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters and Brooke Allen's Lumberjanes since the day it was announced. It's been one of my most anticipated debuts of the year, and not just because Boom! Studios has been on a pretty solid roll of knocking out solid all-ages titles. Just the basic premise of a team of girls at summer camp fighting monsters in the woods with the power of friendship -- specifically the power of friendship to the max -- is so far up my alley that it might be committing a parking violation.

This week, saw the release of the first issue, and I'll admit that my expectations, as you may have already figured out, were pretty high going into it. The thing is, Lumberjanes #1 was even better than I expected on pretty much every level.

Friendship To The Max: Stevenson, Ellis, Allen And Watters Talk ‘Lumberjanes’ [Interview]

Lumberjanes, Boom! Box

Boom! Box kicked off this year with a pretty intriguing announcement when they told us about Lumberjanes, a new creator-owned series created by Boom! Senior Editor Shannon Watters and Grace Ellis, written by Noelle Stevenson and Ellis, and drawn by Brooke Allen that tells the story of five girls who head off to scout camp and end up battling against the forces of the supernatural. It's pretty much everything I want out of a comic book right from that description, but there's always a little more to get excited about when it comes to the details.

To find out more, I spoke to the entire team about how the book is structured, why they chose to set it at a camp, and their devout and undying love for The Baby-Sitters Club. Also, the Spice Girls make an appearance you won't want to miss.

Comics Alliance Reader Choice Awards: Best Editor [Poll]

Reader Choice Awards

2013 was a great year for comics. It feels like a similar statement is made after every year concludes, but 2013 unquestionably saw exceptional work from several creators, across multiple publishers and genres within the medium. To close out the year, we offered what we felt to be the best comics of the year, highlighting dozens of writers and artists whose creative output we felt deserved to be celebrated.

But now we want to hear from you. Readers often offer us their opinions, via the comment section or social media, as to what they’re enjoying, or what they think we missed. Now we’d like you to let us know with your vote, as this week we’re launching the first annual ComicsAlliance Reader Choice Awards. We’ll have two categories per day throughout the week, and you can vote more than once if you like, though you’ll have to wait an hour at least before coming back to vote again. Voting will be open until February 11 at 10 a.m. EST, and we’ll announce the winners shortly after.

You can cast your vote after the cut for the best editor of the year.

Boom! Studios Unveils A Hand-Printed ‘Regular Show’ Comic For San Diego And We Need Them In Our Lives [Video]

Reg01

I'm not usually a person who gets excited about all the exclusives at San Diego's Comic-Con International, but with their exclusive Regular Show book, Boom! Studios has cut through even my crystallized layer of cynicism to trigger that immediate "I need that in my life" reaction.

Written and drawn by artist Jon Chad, who brought you last year's similar Adventure Time exclusive, Regular Show: The Machine is a hand-assembled, screen-printed comic that's limited to 500 copies. And instead of reading like your standard mini, this one folds out.

Bodysnatching bad guys are traditionally depicted as germs, viruses, bugs, worms and other less-than-lovely corruptors. In Ryan Pequin and colorist Mirka Andolfo's Bravest Warriors #5 backup, "Cute Calamity," however, the team may be up against a much more cuddly threat when the huge-hearted Wallow adopts a pet of unknown alien origins. It's kind of like the time I w
