Everyone’s favorite cabin leader has a special surprise for her campers.

Lumberjanes Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley aren’t quite sure what to make of the fact that Jen, of all people, is leading them on a late-night adventure.

But this exclusive first look at a comic from writer and artist polterink and letterer Aubrey Aiese shows that Jen has not in fact been replaced by a Changeling.

The story will be featured in Boom! Studios’ special Free Comic Book Day issue “Lumberjanes: Farewell to Summer.” The stories in the FCBD special will see the Lumberjanes scouts at Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types say farewell to the most magical summer of their lives.
