She is best known for her webcomic Demonology 101.
Since the beginning of Demonology 101, Hicks has completed a spinoff of the D101 character Sachs entitled A Distant Faith. She also began work on a zombie-movie inspired comic called Zombies Calling, as well as the dystopian comic Ice (originally published on Modern Tales).
As part of her day job she has also contributed backgrounds to the George of the Jungle animated series and created Jenny’s Brothers, a comic strip to the Halifax Chronicle-Herald. She is currently drawing her original comic series, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, which is run weekly in Halifax's local free paper, The Coast, as well as on her own website. Faith's most recently finished full-length graphic novel is Friends With Boys, which was published in February 2012 from First Second.
Hicks' most recent convention attendance was the anime/video game convention, Animinitime, in Halifax, Nova Scotia; as an artist and speaker at Halifax's science fiction convention, Hal-Con, and as a special guest at New York Comic Con 2010.
