Synopsis: 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.

Thoughts: This was such a fun read! I definitely had to start there. I saw Nimona every where on Booktube and I really wanted to read a graphic novel that wasn't part of a series (cause those are usually super long) so Nimona was the perfect choice. And it was so great!

The characters are lovable, the story is fun and captivating, and there is humor but also some heartfelt moments that made this one of my favorite graphic novels ever! The art is so awesome too, it definitely made me want to read more of Stevenson's work.

I highly recommend Nimona to everyone, especially to anyone who has wanted to start reading graphic novels but has never dared to give them a chance. This is definitely a perfect place to start.
