The Divided Earth Events!

Hi everyone! The Divided Earth, the third and final book in the Nameless City trilogy will be out in bookstores very soon! I’m so excited for people to read it! I really hope you like the conclusion of Rat and Kai’s story, which I’ve worked so hard on. Three years of my life spent on this trilogy! I have a few upcoming events to promote the publication of The Divided Earth; if you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come by to say hi and pick up a book. If you’re not able to come to one of my public events, The Divided Earth can be found where most books are sold: at your local bookstore, your local comic store, Amazon, B&N or Indigo

Vancouver Island Children’s Book Festival & VanCAF!

Hi everyone. I have two events in British Columbia this month. The first is the Vancouver Island Children’s book festival. I’ll be doing a presentation about my work and how you can learn to draw comics (if that’s something you want to do ;) at the book festival this Saturday. Check out the schedule here

I’ll also be exhibiting at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (VanCAF) on May 19th and 20th. I’ll have most of my books for sale (The Nameless City, The Stone Heart, Superhero Girl, Friends with Boys, a few others) and will have some original art for purchase as well. If you already own books of mine, I’ll also be happy to sign them for you. I’ll be at table B2 in the Exhibition Hall along with my boyfriend Tim Larade, who’ll be selling the collected edition of his webcomic Mush A Mush as well as prints and original art.

Hope to see you there! 

Spring Convention Season!

Hi everyone! I’m hard at work on my two comic projects for 2018. You can take a look at the cover to the first Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel written by me (with art by Peter Wartman) here. It’ll be out in October, and the name of the series is Imbalance. Ooh, spooky! I’m also hard at work on my graphic novel with Rainbow Rowell, called Pumpkinheads. Follow me on Twitter or Instagram to get the occasional update for that. And the third Nameless City book, The Divided Earth, will be out on September 25th, 2018! Whew, busy year. 

I’m trying to keep my travel and events to a minimum so I can focus on work, but I have an upcoming event you can see me at.
I am a special guest at Wondercon which is March 23rd to 25th. Here’s my schedule: 

Lessons in Kids’ Comics
Friday March 23, 2018 2:30pm – 3:30pm 
Room 213AB
Grab your afterschool snacks and settle down to listen to WonderCon Anaheim special guests Nidhi Chanani (Pashmina), Jody Houser (Faith), Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City), Cat Staggs (Supergirl), and Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) as they wax philosophical on why kids’ comics shouldn’t shy away from the tough stuff. Moderated by Jessica Tseang (founder, The Comic Book Girl, Little Geek Girls).

Manga: An Intro For Comic Fans
Friday March 23, 2018 5:00pm – 6:00pm 
Room 211
Are you a longtime comics fan but also have interest in anime and manga and don’t really know how to dive in? ComiXology hosts a panel of comics luminaries and tastemakers (who are also secretly weebs and otaku, shhh!) to recommend the best of manga, past and present. Tell them your favorite comic, movie, or TV show and they’ll give you a manga to match.
 
Comic Rules for Young Readers
Saturday March 24, 2018 10:30am – 11:30am 
Room 208
Creating comics that speak to young readers (without being condescending) requires numerous skill sets and sensibilities. It also requires knowing when you can and can’t break the rules. Moderator Lee Nordling (two-time Eisner Award nominee) is joined by Michele Wells (VP of content strategy at DC Entertainment), industry legend Marv Wolfman (the founding comics editor for Disney Adventures), Faith Erin Hicks(Eisner Award-winning creator of The Adventures of Superhero Girl), and writer/editor Barbara Randall Kesel (Black Is for Beginnings).
 
Spotlight on: Faith Erin Hicks
Saturday March 24, 2018 12:00pm – 1:00pm 
Room 209
Cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City, The Adventures of Superhero Girl) goes for a magical journey through her varied career, from her awkward early attempts at webcomics to Eisner Award–winning creator with over a dozen published graphic novels. This presentation will include a peek into Faith’s comic-making process, and encouragement for anyone who’s ever wanted to try drawing comics but thought they weren’t a good enough artist to do so.
 
FAITH ERIN HICKS SIGNING (The Nameless City series, The Adventures of Superhero Girl)
Saturday March 24, 2018 1:30pm – 2:15pm 
This will be my only signing at the convention! I unfortunately will not have books for sale, but you are welcome to bring your own books (I’m happy to sign for free as many as you bring), and I am also giving away free signed/sketched in bookplates. 
Signing Area – Between Halls B and C
 
That’s it! Hope to see you all at Wondercon!
