Every nation that invades the City gives it a new name. But before long, new invaders arrive and the City changes hands (and names) 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. Available in softcover and hardcover editions.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Apr 5, 2016

    The Nameless City is a fantastic read that I heartily recommend to anyone who likes a well told story featuring a diverse cast and strong, well crafted lead characters. Rat will be a favourite of many readers immediately after they meet her, and I can't wait to see where Faith Erin Hicks is taking this story. This first volume is perfectly crafted and I can't wait to see what she has in store for this world going forward. Read Full Review

    And since it's the first part of the trilogy, I get the feeling that there will be more in this book after I read The Stone Heart (the second volume), and more again when the final volume comes out. So as I offer my final verdict, keep in mind that it's not really final at all. Ask me again what I think of this book after volume three is out. Read Full Review

    The graphic novel is entertaining and a solid mix of action and life lessons that'll leave kids and adults alike entertained. The Nameless City is the first volume of what looks like a great new graphic novel series and by the time I came to its end, I wanted to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 28, 2016

    The art stands on its own and is a credit to visual storytelling. At the end of the day though, for me personally, I didn't love the story or world. It was good. It was way better than most, but it just never roped me in like her previous work had done. I can see the passion, the effort, the building blocks of a franchise, but at the end of the day I don't know if I really would have missed anything by not reading this volume. Read Full Review
