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.
My Review: 5/5 Stars (spoiler-free!)
This was such an amazing graphic novel, I haven’t read a lot but this was definitely really great! It was such a quick, humorous read with amazing characters and a great plot. I honestly can’t think of anything wrong with this graphic novel, it was just amazing!
The characters were witty and fun and also beautiful, thought-provoking, and heartbreaking. ALSO, there are two characters I ship SO hard, there are little doodles of them on the inside of the back cover, so I’m pretty sure they’re cannon!!! *squeal!*
There is magic, friendship, humor, adventure, villains, action, everything! Overall, this was a quick, funny, adventurous, and emotional graphic novel with amazing art and an even better story! 🙂
