First Second have today announced that one of their next big projects will come from the creative team of Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks, who’ll be working on an as-yet-unnamed graphic novel together. On top of this, the company have also signed Rowell for a two-book deal, meaning she’ll also have a second project coming out in future.
Faith Erin Hicks is a familiar name for comics fans, having released a string of excellent books over the last few years which include Bigfoot Boy, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, and Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong. Rowell may be a little less familiar – an award-winning novelist, her books include Eleanor & Park and Fangirl.
Although their project together is as-yet unnamed, it is said to be a YA story. When we know more, you’ll know more too!
