Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks

Next March, First Second Books will publish a graphic novel by Faith Erin Hicks entitled Friends With Boys. In the meantime, First Second and Hicks have launched a page-a-day webcomic of the same name (published Monday through Friday online). It's all about a girl named Maggie who is about to start public high school. With three older brothers to offer their help and guidance (such as it is - they are, after all, boys), a rather shy Maggie tries to navigate what are (to her) extremely uncharted waters; you see, up until now, Maggie's been home-schooled by her mother, who is no longer in the picture. Her dad has just been promoted to chief of police.

Oh. And Maggie has an ongoing relationship with a ghost from the 1800s.

Apparently, the webcomic rolled out on July 4th, so there are 33 pages published as of today - and counting. My inner teen girl kinda has a crush on her oldest brother, Daniel.

Trust me when I say, this is really good so far, and something that many of you will want to check out. The current day's entry appears on the home page, but you can start at the beginning easily enough by clicking "first" underneath the entry.

Here's the link: http://www.friendswithboys.com/.

Really enjoying the web-comic (And also The Adventures of Superhero Girl). Thank you for turning me on to it!

Things are okay. It's been a busy summer - my husband and I are splitting up, and he moved out at the start of August, my older daughter (S) moved to Charleston to start college (first day of classes was this Tuesday), my younger daughter (M) decided to paint her room, and there's been tons of cleaning and whatnot involved. But truly, things are well.

Oh, Kelly, I'm glad to hear that you're doing well, but I'm so sorry for all the upheaval in your life. Thanks for the reply, I have a tendency to worry when I notice peoples' patterns change (though it happens all the time and I'm hardly the least little bit consistent.) I've also been offline, and especially off LJ, a lot this summer, and I'm sure I've missed news from you.

Now to blow this stupid hurricane as far away from your coast as possible...!

I like the sound of that - I'm checking it out.
