Readers of the blog know that I’m a huge fan of Faith Erin Hicks, whose most recent work is the funny and charming Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong. Now she’s announced that her next project will be The Nameless City, a three-volume historical fantasy in a Central Asia-inspired setting.
First Second will be publishing the series beginning in 2016. Hicks has posted her pitch, including sample art, at the link above. She cites her inspirations for this story as Bone, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Avatar: The Last Airbender, all strong influences. The story is described as “an unlikely friendship forms between Nameless City native Rat, and Kai, whose country has recently conquered her city. The two of them must find common ground between their cultures and foil a sinister conspiracy.”
It’s a long while to wait, but that’s the problem with graphic novels — good art takes time.
