Today continues ADVANCE SCOUT, where each week here at Capeless Crusader, we select a group of creator-owned and major release comic books which are deserving of our readers’ attention. These books represent some of the best work being offered in the comics industry this week.
Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #1
The crossover everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived! Mixing the acclaimed comic from Boom! and the sleeper hit from DC Comics these two groups of characters were made for one another!
The Lumberjanes are a young group of campers that experience supernatural occurances at their summer camp with charming and hilarious results. Meanwhile Gotham Academy follows a group of kids attending the titular school in the Batman universe with protagonist Olive being the daughter of a c-list villain and her “friend” Pomeline finding them involved in the Academy’s numerous ghost-sightings.
Written by Chynna Clugston-Flores and drawn by Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, the two crews are drawn to the woods to investigate strange happenings, but are soon drawn together in what is sure to be a crossover that you won’t forget. Fun and appropriate for kids of all ages, this book is great for fans of both (or either) series and also a great introduction for those who have yet to dip their toes in the water.
