Faith Erin Hicks is a brilliant cartoonist. I'm slowly collecting everything she's worked on that's in print ('The Adventures of Superhero Girl' is next on the list), and her Tumblr and website are also worth delving into. She has a beautiful drawing style, so vibrant, packed with humour and action. She's done some collaborations, but my favourite things that she's done are the solo books 'Friends With Boys' and 'The War At Ellsmere' both deal with young women who feel slightly out of place in a new environment. It's a feeling we can all empathise with, and personally I never tire of being reassured about that. Anyway, if you're looking for graphic novels to read which are funny, sweet and often feature some dark or supernatural elements (watch out for your brain...) I recommend these.
