Nimona (No-Spoiler) Review


I’d heard good things regarding the graphic novel Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, and I did not feel let down one bit upon reading it. The story was so sassy, cute and fun. I really enjoyed the characters, and how the story developed from humble beginnings to an increasingly dramatic plot with ever-growing stakes.


Here’s the description from Goodreads:

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. 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.


I think this story would definitely be of interest to people who enjoyed the cartoon Adventure Time. It has that same sort of charm in my opinion, all while doing its own thing. Definitely worth checking out, in my opinion!

    1. Seriously! Speaking of sharks, I had a nightmare that my dad and I were cage diving in some rickety busted cage that was missing all but one wall of bars and a great white attacked. It was terrifying because we kept having to swim and push the one wall we had to use as a shield between us and the shark. Then I started attacking the shark at all the classic weak points, nose, gills, eyes, etc. and I ended up kicking a shark’s ass in my dream. lol Like I was tearing at the gills and eyes and everything, even while it was biting me. There was blood everywhere, BUT I won and we didn’t get eaten. 😛
