    Lucy is such an awesome friend!

    I’m really going to miss reading this comic everyday, the daily page update was the highlight to my mornings!

    I’m looking forward to getting the book though!

    I’d love to see Voted Most Likely, and the other comics you create posted like this before the release of the book!

  7. This isn’t the last page is it? DDD: It just feel last page-y.

    I have really, really enjoyed this comic. I have no idea how I found it but I’m glad I did!

    Also, your blog posts about artistic process and being a working artist were awesome, and inspired me to get serious about working toward an illustration career, so thanks for that!

    Keep on rocking.

  9. I got my copy of Friends with Boys this morning! So great, and excellent to see the concept sketches in the back, great extra.

    As much as I loved this comic, I could not bring myself to buy it for myself.

    So I bought it for my nine-year-old daughter.

    She has two brothers and I think sometimes feels a little left out.

    Thanks for making a book for her! (and me, too!)

    I’ve totally fallen in love with your comix and with your awesome blogs here and on Superhero Girl, especially when you comment on comic design and the challenges/life of freelance cartooning. I have an 11 year old son (today) who draws comix endlessly. I’ve wanted to introduce him to your blogs so he can see that a career of cartooning is a) possible, and b) takes a lot of dedication to the craft.

    I understand that you are VERY busy, but have you thought of consolidating your “tutorial” blogs into a book for young/aspiring cartoonists? You are a great role model.

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.
