The Nameless City
Continuing the trend of young adult comics taking place is Asian countries of no determinate origin comes the beginning of a new series by Faith Erin Hicks—well known in the young adult community for her previous titles. In this world, which could take place in China, we are in a city that has been conquered many times by many different groups. Each time it has been conquered the conquerors have changed the name, where it becomes at a point a city with no name. And since the city sits at the spot where the river meets the ocean it is always under siege. Into this world steps Kaidu, a young man sent to the city to be trained as a warrior under the ruling Dao. One day he meets up with a young city girl named Rat, who aims to show him the true side of the City. But threats are ever mounting.
This is a decent beginning, a lot of set up; but that is something to expect with the first volume. But good pacing, and easy to follow storyline should keep teenagers’ attention.
