Superhero Girl 100


Yaaaaay Superhero Girl comic number 100!!! ... aaannnnd, hiatus. Yes, sadly, this is true, and not just a punchline. I'm currently swamped with work, and although Superhero Girl is one of my many jobs (as some of you know, it's published in The Coast, a free weekly in Halifax, Nova Scotia), it has become too time consuming to fit into my pressurized schedule. So I have asked the Coast for a bit of a break, and they have kindly agreed. Superhero Girl will return in June with new adventures, and maybe by then I'll have the time to build her a proper webpage. We'll see! So keep an eye on this website and my twitter for updates. I really appreciate all my reader support this past year, and I hope you'll rejoin me when the comic starts up again. My friend Miriam Gibson will be taking over my spot in the Coast with her bizarre and entertaining comic, Everyone's A Centaur. I hope you enjoy her work!
Otherwise, did you know I have a graphic novel coming out TODAY??? Yes! Friends With Boys, my new graphic novel from First Second, is out now! For the next week, you can read the ENTIRE comic online for free, and if you like it, I hope you will consider buying it to support me, so I can continue to make comics just for you. ;)

Upcoming events: I know for sure I will be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival May 5th -6th. There are other events I plan to go to, but due to schedule craziness, everything is a bit up in the air.
So ... see you in June, guys!

  2. It's my fault! I just finished the archives yesterday and added you to my RSS reader. It was inevitable. :D

    I also read Friends With Boys, and will definitely be buying the graphic novel.

  4. Now that's a plot twist I didn't see coming.

    Good luck, Ms. Hicks. Hope to see SHG come back in June. :-)

  5. The end of Friends with Boys (which I've ordered and is on its way from Amazon right now!) and a hiatus for Superhero Girl? But, but, but... I need more! Ah well, I will do my best to wait patiently.

  6. I came to your work through your Wolverine story, became a regular follower through Superhero Girl, have now bought Friends With Boys (and your issue of Girl Comics when it came out) so I'm glad you're busy with lots of things. But I look forward to summer. And hearing how she had to fight the Pirates of the Caribbean or something. :)

  7. Between a hiatus for Superhero Girl and the end of Friends with Boys, this is a tough week. On the positive side, hopefully my LCS will have a shiny print copy of FWB waiting when I next pop in.

  9. Congratulations on reaching 100. Damn, I'm so sorry to see this comic go (for now). Thank you for all the great comics, Faith.

  10. Will you be accepting guest comics, Faith? I'd be happy to contribute if given a deadline. Also, nominating you for an Eisner since your work is fantastic!

  11. Everyone's a Centuar isn't a joke? See you June!

  12. This is sad but if it is unavoidable I understand. Better to be on hiatus due to lots of work than other less awesome reasons!

  14. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Now what reason will I have to wake up on Tuesdays?

    But I'm happy your life is super full of paying gigs. Hope to see more of SHG this summer!

  15. Sad news. But there's hope, so let's not get depressed.

    Also: "Friends With Boys" arrived to-day at my mailbox in good old Germany. Thanks, Amazon.

    Cheers,
    Dieter

  19. I somehow missed the fact that Friends with Boys was coming out, and I almost shat myself in Barnes & Nobles when I saw it sitting on the shelf. Long time reader, I stumbled onto Demonology 101 when I was 11, and since then I've been in love with your work. Excited holder of 1st edition print of Friends with Boys. Again, super fangirly, but you rock.

  21. Somehow knowing that there won't be an update until June and that it is not, in fact, June yet hasn't kept me from checking back occasionally just in case.

  22. Faith, are you still alive out there?

    1. Yep! But it's not June yet. I said June up there when I posted about the hiatus. So a little early to start wondering.
