Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy to crossover this June
It was announced exclusively to Village Voice that the comic series Lumberjanes by BOOM! Studios and Gotham Academy by DC Comics will be doing a crossover special this June. This project actually marks the first time BOOM! Studios will be doing a crossover. The special project of the two series will be six issues long.
Lumberjanes tells the story of five female campers that explore a supernatural forest and dealing with their own struggles. Gotham Academy is the story of boarding school students set in the hometown of Batman, Gotham.
Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy have many times in common that will make this crossover a success. Both series have similar themes: cast of teenagers, regular adolescent problems such as love and figuring out who they are, and unlikely occurrences like the supernatural or super villains.
The Lumberjanes X Gotham Academy series will be written by Chynna Clugston-Flores (Blue Monday) and illustrated by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell (Lumberjanes).
UPDATE: Incentive cover of the first issue exclusive to Comics Alliance added.
