Staff Reviews


Stunningly imaginative and emotionally satisfying, "Nimona" is a graphic novel that is a force to be reckoned with. She shows up randomly and suddenly with her great shapeshifting abilities and general aloofness that you can't help but laugh at her wit and goofyness. Nimona sides with notorious villain--Ballister Blackheart--to help him wreak havoc, obtain vengeance, and fight the Institution in which his former best friend Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin has allied with. But is the Insititution really all that good? Humorous and heartwarming, this is a perfectly realised world where science and magic co-exist quite happily.

Description


The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it "a deadpan epic."

Nemeses Dragons Science Symbolism All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.

But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.
