Reviews Nimona

  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    This was so great! I love Noelle Stevenson's writing & art style. Can she just write a million more graphic novels please?
  • Zoë
    Amazing! I loved the strong, unique characters, the plot, the humor, the art, and everything else!
  • Raeleen Lemay
    hilarious, touching, with beautiful art and an interesting ending. Great for fans of Vicious by V.E. Schwab and Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl (because the Simon Snow vibes were strong, let's be real)
  • Lola Reviewer
    ‘‘I can’t have a kid following me around all day.’’‘‘I’m not a kid. I’M A SHARK.’’ Pouahaha. What a story! What witty dialogs! Filled with humour, adventure, magic and friendship, it will certainly charm and entertain the hell out of you. This title used to be a DNF of mine, before I decided to give it a second shot. Glad I did! What made me stop reading it the first time around was the graphics, because this is a style tha...

    I'm always willing to pick up an Indie comic, especially one written by a name I recognize. This one did not disappoint.It's funny at times, sweet at times, pleasantly subversive without being heavy-handed or preachy. I'm reading through it with my little boy right now, and he's enjoying it too....

    This review contains *spoilers*.I’ve been meaning to read this graphic novel for a few months now and I’m really happy that I finally did.It had me hooked right from the beginning and wouldn’t let go till the end. I loved it!This story follows Nimona, a shapeshifter, and Ballister Blackheart, a villain with a vendetta.They are partnering up as sidekick and supervillain, and are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their main mission: prove to...
  • Shelby *trains flying monkeys*
    Lord Ballister Blackheart is a dastardly villain. Well, not really. He could be with the right little push.Enter Nimona! Nimona shows up one day and announces that she is now his side kick. She has some kick ass powers of shape-shifting. She can turn into any living thing. Even other human forms. The only form she can't take is something inanimate. Nimona is primed to help Blackheart be the best super villain ever. If he would let her. She is rea...

    4.8 StarsWarning: Spoilers and mawkish sentiment ahead, and very few jokes (though that will be a relief to most of you). At first blush, Nimona is the tale of a precocious but powerful girl’s quest to apprentice herself to the villainous Lord Ballister Blackheart as he fights the forces of good and justice, led by the spectacularly appellated (yes, I just verbed “appellation” with it) Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin. As our tale begins, we...
