The patches are based on the unique badges that have been a prominent feature of the hit LUMBERJANES comic book series, in which the five main characters—Molly, Mal, April, Jo, and Ripley—earn them for their different achievements while away at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for “Hardcore Lady Types.” LUMBERJANES was created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, and Noelle Stevenson. It is written by Ellis and Stevenson, and illustrated by Brooke Allen.
In addition, as a testament to the growing popularity of the series since its launch in April, BOOM! Box revealed that pre-release orders for issue #4 (on sale July 9th in comic shops) have exceeded that of issue #1, a rare achievement for non-#1 issues.
Each iron-on patch is a perfect embroidered replica of the badges featured in the book, which were designed by artist Kate Leth (BRAVEST WARRIORS, ADVENTURE TIME: SEEING RED). The set will include the following patches:
- Naval Gauging Badge - Awarded for proficiency in canoeing...and of course, for successfully navigating monster-infested waters
- Pungeon Master Badge - Awarded for being exceptionally pun-ny
- Up All Night Badge - Awarded for staying awake all night and up out of your bed after lights out
- Exclusive San Diego Comic-Con Badge - To be revealed!
LUMBERJANES #4 arrives in comic shops on July 9th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond Order Code MAY141177. It features a main cover illustrated by Noelle Stevenson and a retailer incentive cover by Kris Anka. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer?
