Hey guys, it's been a while, and I've been completely remiss not posting about this here (even though I've posted about it every other place, I've yet to post it on the actual Superhero Girl website. Terrible!). Anyway, if you didn't already know, there is going to be an actual physical Superhero Girl book in glorious colour! Yes! And it's coming out this month! It's a beautiful hardcover book, colours by the amazing Cris Peter (who previously coloured my contribution to Marvel's Girl Comics anthology), and published by Dark Horse Comics. Go here for some photos I took of the book! There is info about the book's publication here, and you will be able to buy it pretty much anywhere. Shop at your local book/comic book store if you can, but you'll be able to find the book on Amazon as well. 

I've had many people ask me about buying the small, black and white self-published Superhero Girl book I did a while back, but I didn't have the time to deal with mail order. But now you get something better! A gorgeous hardcover (it's huge, too!), all in colour, containing every Superhero Girl strip plus some extra stuff, available everywhere! If you like Superhero Girl and have enjoyed the webcomic, I hope you will consider buying the book.

As for the comic itself, it has fallen by the wayside at the moment due to my insane work schedule, which unfortunately is not letting up until the summer. I really miss drawing Superhero Girl. It was a fun and rewarding comic to make, and I want to eventually get back to it. I think I will, but it will not be before the summer. As always, keep an eye on my various social medias (twitter! tumblr! facebooks!) and when I'm able to start drawing Superhero Girl comics again, I'll let you know. Thanks for sticking around! :)

  5. I got my copy early! And SHG never looked better. Are the future strips going to be in color as well? :-)

    However, since I'm too lazy to look, we know that SHG's brother's name is Kevin.

    What's her name?

  6. I have my copy. It's great! I was surprised at some of the colors. I didn't know that Superhero Girl was a redhead, for one thing.

  11. I binge-read all 100 (101?) installments and i see you haven't updated since February. I understand getting too busy to update, so I'll just say I adore Superhero Girl and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can return to her sooner than later. (we need more women superheroes to counter Old Sexist Guys making superheroes sexist!)

    I was introduced to SHG in True Patriot this past summer, and glad I tracked down more of her adventures.

  15. Hi Miss Hicks. Any chance that Super Hero Girl will return? I really enjoyed it, and I hope you find time to bring her back to kick ninja butt and deal with everyday life as a superhero.

    Anyway, thanks for a great web comic!
