let’s review: nimona

nimonaNimona is a fun, clever, and colorfully drawn story of a well-meaning supervillain, Lord Ballister Blackheart, and his new shapeshifting sidekick, Nimona, a young girl with an impatient craving for mischief and adventure. With some shady business going down at the Institute of Law Enforcement and Heroics, this unlikely team pairs up to fight back. But Ballister’s complicated past with the kingdom’s frontrunner, Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin, and Nimona’s mysterious origins prove to make their vengeful/heroic mission a bit trickier to accomplish. With Noelle Stevenson’s delightfully unique illustrative style, amusing characters and chuckle-worthy lines, plus science, magic, and sharks, Nimona is a new little gem of the graphic novel world.
