Nimona

Nimona - Noelle Stevenson

This book is my new favorite graphic novel! It is really cool because it is in a normal fantasy setting, knights versus super villains with dragons, except its all about the villain, and his new sidekick Nimona. Her shape shifting is really powerful and neat, and she's also a teenager with an attitude, so there are times where you start to break out laughing. There is something to be said about the art too; I like its simple and bubbly style. It makes it so the artist can break the rules of reality really easily and make it look cool and expressive. The story moves along nicely and the characters are charming. Each has its own backstory, strengths, flaws, and personalities. Nimona and the main villain, Lord Ballister Blackheart, are a great team. Blackheart uses villainy to make a statement, and Nimona just wants to kill everyone and wreak havoc. Together, they are powerful, but they are sure to not be merciless and crazy. This book is just great overall!
