The Plus! titles, each published as stand-alone novellas, will highlight Hickman’s return as an artist. Hickman has always been known as an artist who challenges himself, so each of the entries in the Plus! project will have a different visual style.
“It feels like it’s time, right? This past year, while I’ve produced a lot of work, my fingers have certainly been itching to draw again,” explained Hickman. “So, here we go! A new book, Feel Better Now, a new format, and in both execution and design, a new style. I can’t wait for people to see it!”
Feel Better Now is the story of a group of psychiatrists who, out of boredom, decide to start tinkering recreationally with the lives of their patients. This act becomes a game, and as one might guess, spirals out of control pretty quickly.
Feel Better Now will be a 40-page original graphic novella and hit stores October 19 for $3.99. It will also be available to order in the August issue of Previews.
