Lumberjanes is a comic book series created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn A. Allen and Noelle Stevenson[1] and published via the Boom Box! imprint of Boom! Studios. The story follows a group of girls named Mal, Ripley, Molly, April, and Jo spending summer at a scout camp, and the strange creatures and supernatural phenomena they encounter there. Originally planned as an eight-part series, the comic was made an ongoing series following strong sales and critical acclaim.[2]



A fan of Lumberjanes is called a "Lumberjumbie", which is a gender-neutral term.[3]

The most popular pairing on Archive of Our Own is Mal/Molly, which as of May, 2019 has 8 works out of a total of 29 Lumberjanes fanworks on AO3. Abigail/Rosie and April & Jo are the second most popular pairings, with two works each.
