Sarah has also written The Ruby Equation (with artist Sally Jane Thompson) for the Eisner-nominated romance comics anthology Fresh Romance and Barbie comics (with artist Alitha Martinez).

Unofficial Challengers mascot Amber Benson co-wrote and directed the animated web-series Ghosts of Albion with Christopher Golden for the BBC. The duo then novelized the series in two books for Random House. Her solo novels include the 5-volume DEATH’S DAUGHTER series and 2 (so far) volumes of THE WITCHES OF ECHO PARK. As an actress, Benson spent three seasons as Tara Maclay on the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She has also written, produced, and directed three feature films.

IL – The Nameless City Signing

000000_faith-erin-hicks-nameless-city-fehPress Release:

Challengers is honored to host Eisner Award-winning cartoonist FAITH ERIN HICKS for a discussion and signing for the first volume in her new NAMELESS CITY trilogy. This event will start with a discussion between Faith Erin Hicks and local journalist (and comics fan) Web Behrens, with a signing to follow. Challengers will have copies of Nameless City Volume 1 on hand for sale, as well as other fantastic books from Faith’s career, but fans are invited to bring their own copies if they’d like. We’re enormously excited to have as talented a creator as Faith Erin Hicks here for an event. Don’t miss your chance to meet her!

This event runs from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, April 6th, and is intended for all ages. Bring the whole family!

Every nation that invades the City gives it a new name. But before long, new invaders arrive and the City changes hands once again. The natives don’t let themselves get caught up in the unending wars. To them, their home is the Nameless City, and those who try to name it are forever outsiders. Kaidu is one such outsider. He’s a Dao born and bred–a member of the latest occupying nation. Rat is a native of the Nameless City. At first, she hates Kai for everything he stands for, but his love of his new home may be the one thing that can bring these two unlikely friends together. Let’s hope so, because the fate of the Nameless City rests in their hands.

Faith Erin Hicks is a writer and artist in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her graphic novels include Zombies Calling, The War at Ellsmere, Brain Camp (with Susan Kim and Laurence Klavan), Friends with Boys, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong (with Prudence Shen), the Bigfoot Boy series (with J. Torres), The Last of Us: American Dreams (with Neil Druckmann), the Eisner Award-winning The Adventures of Superhero Girl, and the Nameless City series.
