I’ve been a fan of Faith Erin Hicks ever since I discovered her delightful graphic novel “Zombies Calling” on the shelf at the Silver Snail back in 2007. Thanks to Twitter, I’ve discovered she’s been writing and drawing an equally charming comic strip, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, for The Coast out in Halifax. It’s about a superhero who is also a girl, just like it says on the box.
On this very cold, very quiet Tuesday, I recommend you curl up with the Internet viewing device of your choice and enjoy. (She’s posted 29 strips thus far; it really doesn’t take that long to get through them. Even if you’re at work.)
And if you have another five minutes, check out this marvelous Wolverine one-shot, which makes me wish Darren Aronofsky would hire her as a script consultant before it’s too late.
