Faith Erin Hicks, creator of two graphic novels from SLG, Zombies Calling and The War at Ellsmere, and the artist on an upcoming book from First Second called Brain Camp, announced on her blog this week that she’s writing and drawing on a new book called Friends with Boys:
It’s the first time I’ve used my own life as a jumping off point for a comic, although I’d like to stress the book is not autobiographical, nor is the main character me. It’s about a girl named Maggie, who has three brothers (as I do), who was home-schooled (as I was), and is now entering her first year of public high school (as I did). She also is stalked by a ghost (that has yet to happen to me). She gets mixed up in High School Drama, makes friends with the wrong people, and because the story is written by me, it will contain two things: 1) Zombies. And 2) Someone will, eventually, get punched in the face.
She’s hoping the book will be out in 2011. Brain Camp comes out next year.
