Comics Fetish: Volume 25 (Lumberjanes Edition)

Brenna Clarke Gray

Staff Writer

Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

Welcome to Comics Fetish, your weekly round-up of cool comics-related stuff to buy and wear and gift and share. We theme every fifth edition of Comics Fetish here at Panels, so in honour of the April 7 release date of the first Lumberjanes trade paperback, we present Comics Fetish: Lumberjanes Edition.

It’s important to me that you know that Boom! Studios actually sells Lumberjanes badges. The actual badges. Are you a Pungeon Master? Do you crochet at a Friendship to the Craft level? Reward yourself with a Lumberjanes badge (or six).

We Love Fine partnered with Boom! Studios to make some great t-shirts. I think this one is the ultimate cool-person detector. If they get the reference, you’ve just made a friend!

In fact, why stop there? Why not own a plushie Kitten Holy of your very own, complete with sound effects: an angel’s and a meow. No I am not kidding. Yes I need two.

And for the guy fans of Lumberjanes, all the tees come in men’s sizing too. I think a guy in a Lumberjanes group shot tee might be the new Hot Dudes Reading craze, frankly.

Over on Etsy, this pair of Lumberjanes flats is perfection. Incidentally, it’s my birthday tomorrow, so…

And a bonus: over at the wonderful Women Write about Comics, Annie Bulloch offers a DIY campfire dinner recipe sure to please any (non-vegetarian) Lumberjane.

Friendship to the max!
