For the past nine months Zombies Calling/The War at Ellsmere creator Faith Erin Hicks has been doing a weekly comic strip for the weekly newspaper The Coast in Halifax, Nova Scotia. And now she’s started posting those strips, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, on the web.
“The actual comic itself is an exercise in me seeing what the heck I can pull out of my ass on a weekly basis,” she said on her blog. “The Coast doesn’t seem to care what I do content wise, which is actually pretty cool, so sometimes the comic follows a plotline and other times it doesn’t. It’s comicing in the truest sense: I write about what I think is funny that particular week. Superhero Girl is also the first time I’ve written/drawn a regular gag comic, which is really tough.”
