Cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks appears at Politics & Prose on Monday, April 4, 2016 at 10:30 AM!

In Hicks’s latest graphic novel, a sprawling metropolis is known only as The Nameless City to its denizens; its advantageous position in the only passage between the mountains and the ocean has subjected it to countless invasions over the years, and its name has changed with each one. Rat, an orphaned street child who has only known life within The Nameless City’s limits, is predisposed to hate Kaidu, a member of the Dao, the most recent people to rule the City. It turns out, however, that Kaidu is nothing like the other Dao who have come to the City for military training; preferring books to guns, he is almost as out of place among his own people as Rat herself is. As an unlikely friendship forms between them, they begin to envision a future in which their two worlds come together in a single, peaceful civilization.

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.

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.
