The New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, “If you’re going to read one graphic novel this year, make it this one.”

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 has been hailed by critics and fans alike as the arrival of a “superstar” talent (NPR.org).

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.

This was a really nice book-it was one of the first graphic novels I had read in a while and I found it to be very entertaining!

This is one of my favorite comic books of all time. I didn't like comic books before because i thought they were only about the well-known superheroes like Batman and all that jazz. But i had to make an exception in this case. The story line, the plot, the humor, the action, the drawings, the dialog, everything about the book was just perfection! Hope to read in the future a prequel to this series sooooo much! It would be amazing.

Is anybody else starting to ship Ambrosius and Ballister?? No? Just me? Okay.... *walks out of room*

I cannot start to explain how much I love this book!!! The graphics are beautiful, the story is unique and the characters are lovable! I would give this book a million stars!!!

I've been following Noelle Stevenson's work since before Nimona was even a webcomic. I'm throwing that out there since I absolutely loved seeing her grow and develop as an artist and storyteller. I'm so happy she got published!

Anywho! You should go and read/buy Nimona. It's so freaking great all around and I'll forever be gushing about it.

This one was just amazing! I also would love a prequel to this series based on Blackheart or even a prequel about Nimona before Blackheart.
