Mark your calendars accordingly. A new trilogy of graphic novels by Faith Erin Hicks of The Adventures of Superhero Girl and Friends with Boys is going to kick off in 2016, and according to the far-in-advance press, it's going to be a grand, sweeping story.

(Editors Note: Her head did not literally explode).

Faith Erin Hicks is gradually colonizing my brain. Apparently, it wasn't enough that she created The Adventures of Superhero Girl, which details the events, both fantastic and mundane, in the life of an entry-level superhero; or that she wrote Friends with Boys, her recently released First Second book about formerly homeschooled girl navigating the perils of high scho
