    You know, I completely believed Daniel was killed by zombies too. I was surprised to see him in the comic afterwards, but then I thought he’s probably going to turn all zombie and eat them. I’m still waiting for that to happen.

    It could be the perfect ending :D

    C’mon, guys, just hug it out. Worked for Lloyd and Zander!

    Also, will the prices for FwB go up after pre-ordering is done (i.e. when the book’s actually available in print)? I’m thinking about getting this book for my little sister, but my pocket money’s running a bit low at the moment.

      The book is $16 normally, but Amazon has it discounted, as is their way. I’ve no idea if that discount is going away at some point, but knowing Amazon I’d think not.

    Faith, when FWB is finished, will you go back to writing in your LJ? I sure hope so. I love having these constant updates and am glad you are over here as that place lays quiet for a bit. I think this has been my fave comic so far… I cant say anything to do it justice but just want to mention that the effort you put in for the backgrounds (not that elsmere and zombies didnt have fab bacgrounds too)…. I just wanted to mention the backgrouds but words fail me… backgrounds = awesome

      I hope to start up a proper blog at my website later this year. LJ has become really difficult to use lately, so I don’t plan on going back. But I’ll probably not be blogging for a while after FWB wraps up, due to deadlines. Summertime, I hope to get back to it. :)

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.
