Canadian writer/artist Faith Erin Hicks will be signing here in association with the Thought Bubble festival on Monday the 7th November, from 6-7pm!
From her early days on pioneering webcomic Demonology 101, Faith has always been an exemplar of hard working comics talent. With her kinetic art style and a natural gift for character, she’s trod her own path in the comics world, producing a series of increasingly popular graphic novels, mainly in the YA field.
In her early days she set herself apart from the pack with fun, horror-themed GNs Zombies Calling and The War at Ellsmere, and has since produced books such as the Bigfoot Boy series with J. Torres and The Adventures of Superhero Girl, a strip which has been collected by Dark Horse (for whom she also co-wrote video game prequel The Last of Us: American Dreams).
But her greatest success has come with her series of YA graphic novels published by First Second: Brain Camp (with Susan Kim & Laurence Klavan); Friends With Boys; Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong (with Prudence Shen); and The Nameless City: Book One (with colours by the incomparable Jordie Bellaire), the excellent first book in a new fantasy series.
Faith will be here to sign from 6-7pm, on Monday the 7th October. And if you can’t make it down to meet her (your loss!), then drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise a reservation or mail order for you. Keep an eye on our Facebook event page for any updates.
