Faith Erin Hicks is the Canadian cartoonist, mostly known for drawing many graphic novels including, some written by her – like The Nameless City and Friend with Boys – some written by others – like Brain Camp – but now she’s written a words-only novel – but the title is still close to her: Comics Will Break Your Heart. It’s coming next year from MacMillan, and Hicks expanded on it in some tweets.



This sounds like Cavalier & Clay for the YA set!

In case you’re wondering where the title comes from, it’s a quote attributed to Jack Kirby.  But perhaps that deserves a post all itself.
