The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the Eisner-winning comic book series Lumberjanes is getting an animated series on HBO Max.
Series co-creator Noelle Stevenson will write and executive produce the show. The comic series has been published by BOOM! Studios‘ BOOM! Box imprint.
While nothing is set in stone, if the project develops then it would start with an animated special that would then lead into a series.
Lumberjanes is about five friends, Apirl, Jo, Mal, Molly, and Ripley, who all come together at the camp Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thilstle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types. From there they get into all sorts of adventure.
Lumberjanes launched in 2014 and was created by Stevenson, Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, and Brooklyn A. Allen. The series has run for over 70 issues and 13 collections and graphic novels selling over 1.5 million copies of its trades. It’s won numerous awards including Eisners and the GLAAD award for outstanding comic. The comic has also lead to prose novels and an encyclopedia exploring the world.
A feature film was in the works at Twentieth Century Fox going back to 2015 but the purchase by Disney upended that project. With it being a hot property a bidding war erupted.
In the Comics Deserve Better Season 1 finale, Brian, Darci, and Logan talk about the end of Stumptown (The TV show) and Lumberjanes as well as Brian Stelfreeze‘s new creator-owned title. They also cover selected stories from the graphic medicine masterpiece, Corpus: A Comic Anthology of Bodily Ailments and talk about their personal connections to them. The episode and season wraps up with previews of Seen: True Stories of Marginalized Trailblazers, Trungles‘ The Magic Fish, and Steve Orlando and Davide Tinto‘s Commanders in Crisis plus all of the hosts’ favorite comic of the season!
