Faith Erin Hicks’ New Book May Seem Familiar — An Interview

It’s been a great pleasure for me to follow the work and career of Faith Erin Hicks.

I’m eagerly anticipating her upcoming Pumpkinheads, written by Rainbow Rowell, coming this fall. After that, there’s another “new” book — but long-time fans will recognize it. First Second will release One Year […]

Roaring Brook Press will release in February 2019 the 336-page Comics Will Break Your Heart, and here’s the cover. She created individual art pieces to use in the letters. She described the book on Twitter as well. The rest of the book […]

The Nameless City is the first of three books by Faith Erin Hicks set in a diverse fantasy world. The second, The Stone Heart, is out this week.

Faith Erin Hicks Launches Friends With Boys Online

I’ve been anticipating the next graphic novel from Faith Erin Hicks (The War at Ellsmere, Superhero Girl) since she announced Friends With Boys two years ago. Now, I can start reading it!

She also is stalked by a ghost (that has yet […]

Comics Will Break Your Heart

It’s a famous phrase, at least amongst comic creators. “Comics will break your heart,” reportedly said Jack Kirby, expressing how many people love and are hurt by a tough business with little room for success. It’s also the title of a comic-centered teen romance novel by incredibly productive and talented cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks. (I previously wrote about a few of her inspirations for the story.) It’s a great choice, as Hicks uses the kind of background fans are familiar […]
