Making a Comic (Part 1)
Faith Erin Hicks it the creator of several of my favorite comics, most of which have featured here a few times. Demonology 101, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, and Friends With Boys are among my favorite comics. You can find out more about her at her website FaithErinHicks.com.
And when life pukes up a hairball on you, you know you’ve done something wrong.
Perhaps not the most glamorous way to save the city but I’d still appreciate her if she saved me from the toy poodle menace.
Zoe didn’t get a cone when she was spayed. I wonder why…
Suddenly I don’t want to be respected by the people of Mechanicsburg. (If you need context, you only have to go back one page.)
This one just made me giggle. Ninja as mice. Awesome.
All he is really missing there is his hat.
I like how she smiles at the end.
The homage to Scooby Doo aside, I love how the geeks are scared out of their mind, but the “normal” girl is actually finding this a lot of fun. Well until the ghost actually catches her. Also author’s note: (For best results, I recommend humming “Yakkety Sax” while reading today’s comic.)
Faith Erin Hicks, one of my favorite comic authors, is posting her newest graphic novel online for all of us to read up until the publication date. This is the same artist and author of the should be famous Demonology 101 comic that premiered on the web so many years ago. Also the same artist who showed up how Wolverine Goes Grocery Shopping and has published several other print only comics (Zombies Calling, The War at Ellsmere) of which I have purchased most and will end up purchasing all. If you follow this blog regularly you’ll likely know her current online comic, The Adventures of Superhero Girl. She has a style all her own and her ability to tell a story through the hybrid media of pictures and words seems to grow with every comic she writes. Case and point, this page from the upcoming comic Friends with Boys.
Faith has been asking us to share the news of Friends with Boys premiering on the net and being published by First Second Books on February 24th, 2012. The premise of the story can be summed up as such:
Being homeschooled and raised with three brothers had its problems, but Maggie’s life is about to get a lot more complicated as she faces her greatest trial yet – entering public school for the first time!

Arbor Day! Not just for pirates anymore.
I suspect incredibly unthreatening is his particular ability.
Introducing Bring Dice and Chips, a comic that lives in the DriveThruRPG.com email news letter. It is often as hilarious at this one too. It’s alright to let it be a little low, but never a dump stat.
Hey now. Not every supervillian has a lair. Those things are expensive!
That is the saddest holographic otter in the world.
To be fair Thief already owns all those secrets. He contracted the rights to all secrets away from them at the beginning of the comic.
This is totally what my cat does whenever I try to impart anything but food and pettings upon her.
Obviously Superhero girl needs to get more friends…
Aww. I don’t want to kill you too.
Go find the tracks for the corrupted core dialogs on YouTube. Hilarious if a little spoiler-y.
Not my exact personal view of the situation… but still correct.
Never interrupt a woman while she is narrating. It’s rude.
It does seem perhaps a bit too objective…
The cat seems unimpressed as well.
Actually haven’t read Wasted Talent’s archive but this comic caught my attention from Felicia Day’s twitter feed and it very much amused me.
Okay NOBODY is as Rad as a swarm of cancer fighting nanomachines but to be fair, such a swarm isn’t nearly as cute as Hannelore.
An oldie but a goodie. Man I love that quote: “Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science!”
So that is why they are so tasty!
I sense wacky hijinks about to ensue.
Introducing a new comic to our Comic Links articles. Yellow Peril! A strip comic focusing on two corporate wage slaves, from which hilarity always ensues.
I am starting to know how this guy feels.
Points for the reference!
I am apparently very bad at figuring out if someone is a hipster or not. It’s like
I like to do this too!
