Graphic Novel/Comic Book Week - Waiting on Wednesday #70


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks (and Jordie Bellaire)
April 5th 2016
Find it on Goodreads

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.

I have not yet read anything by Faith Erin Hicks (though I do want to!) but I really love the sound of The Nameless City. I'm always up for a story about two unlikely friends, especially when they have to team up to save something/someone. It sounds like an exciting adventure and I have a feeling it's going to be pretty funny too. I will definitely be looking forward to reading this, but in the mean time, I will probably pick up some of Faith Erin Hicks's previous work to get a feel for it. I always hear great things about Friends With Boys so I might start with that!

What are you waiting on this week?
