Friends With Boys - Page 189

Aaaand bam. She screwed up. Everything was for nothing. No laying the Ghost to rest, because whatever the Ghost wants, Maggie doesn’t have it. Hard lesson time.

    Interesting. This is not the direction I’d have expected. Applause all around!

    I always did wonder how she made the connection. Guess stress made it for her.

  3. tudza says:

    You have to burn her bones or something. Maybe the ghost has an overdue library book.

    Well, I mean, if Ms. Ghost Lady talked to Maggie instead of just floating over bed at night maybe this awkward situation could have been avoided. Communication, people! (And ghost people!)

      yeah… and why can maggie only see her? mabey it’s some kind of ghost mission that only girls with 3 brothers can do?

    Ghosts are a weird bunch to figure out.

  6. Aden Scott says:

    Hey Faith, how detailed is the story when you work it out at the outline stage, and what do you leave to be figured out later? Also, when you’re knocking out comic pages, how far ahead do you plan them before you pencil? I’m figuring out my own process, and I love hearing how the pros work. Thanks!

    The ghost woman knows that Maggie misses her mom.

  8. Ada says:

    How refreshingly realistic! (Too bad Maggie has to find out real life sucks…)

  9. pseudonym says:

    soo…. if the ghost lady isn’t the one from the old legend who is she?!?!?!?

  11. ana says:

    also i think this the best way to keep the story going.

    Both Maggie and the ghost have lost something.. they both have pain in their loss and keep trying to find answers.
    But Maggie survives and goes on the adjust and transcend some of her pain…

Friends With Boys, webcomic edition!

Hello readers, new ones just discovering the comic and those who’ve been with it since the beginning. Friends With Boys is now complete online. You may read it in its entirety, all 200+ pages, for free, for the next eight days. Then the image files of the comic (except for a short preview) will be taken down. While the comic was being serialized online, I blogged a lot about my comic making process. I did write ups about how I make comics, what my opinions on what makes a good comic are, and pointed out various Easter eggs throughout Friends With Boys. That stuff will all remain up, so if you buy a hard copy of Friends With Boys, you can still read along with my thought process.

And now (today!), Friends With Boys is a published book! Yay! I hope that if you’ve read the web version and liked it, and want to support me as a creator, you’ll consider buying the book.

I’ve really enjoyed serializing Friends With Boys online. If you’re new to my work, I started out making comics online before moving into print. I posted the very first page of my very first online comic on my very first website back in August, 1999, and wow, was that page ugly. Here it is! Notice a weird similarity to the first page of Friends With Boys? Yeah, that was not deliberate, I promise. But look how much your drawing skills can improve if you draw thousands of pages of comics over a ten year period! Anyway, I’m really thrilled my wonderful publisher First Second Books has allowed me to return to my roots and put Friends With Boys online as a lead up to its publication. As a reader and purchaser of comics, I have bought quite a few hard copy versions of online comics, because I enjoy the reading experience of having the whole thing collected, and I want to support the author. I hope you will too. :)

Otherwise, there are a few upcoming events I hope to see some readers at:
Book signing! At my local comics shop Strange Adventures, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, March 3rd (Saturday), 2-4pm (EDITING TO ADD: The book launch has been moved to the following Saturday due to the books not shipping to Strange Adventures on time. The launch will now be March 10th from 2-4pm. Go here for info).
Comic convention! I’ll have a table at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, May 6th-7th. There are a few other conventions I am trying to attend, but everything else is up in the air at the moment. For updates, please follow my twitter or join my Facebook fan page.  I’m pretty good about updating those two spots.
