What’s to Love: We adore DC’s Gotham Academy and it’s been on our wish list to have them somehow meet the Lumberjanes. From the great characters to the fun stories, we saw a world in which these two groups could coexist. Fast forward and here we are-the crossover event we’ve dreamed about and can’t wait to bring to you!
What It Is: Something sinister is happening at a mysterious building deep in the woods, drawing the Lumberjanes and the Gotham Academy kids separately to investigate. Is it a weird cabin? An abandoned asylum? The two groups band together to find out what exactly is going on. Featuring a connecting subscription cover by Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Toil and Trouble)!
The first issue of “Lumberjanes”/”Gotham Academy” hits stands in June.
