Nimona | Noelle Stevenson
National Book Award Finalist * New York Times Bestseller * New York Times Notable Book * Kirkus Best Book * School Library Journal Best Book * Publishers Weekly Best Book * NPR Best Book * New York Public Library Best Book * Chicago Public Library Best Book * A Spring 2015 Indie Next List PickThe New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, If youre 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.

It‘s COMICS DAY on the Gay May recs grids countdown! As per usual, this is a non-exhaustive list of great comics I urge you to check out if you want to read all/mostly/more queer stuff next month. Many are series, too, so there‘s SO MUCH HERE!

Titles highlighted below. The tagged book explores the wobbly line between good and evil, and also how awesome it is to turn into a SHARK (if you like sharks, which tbh I don‘t). #gaymay

Library haul: Graphic novels, woman-written sci fi and fantasy, and DEPRESSION 🙃

Eyelit I just read bubble and really liked it! Fresh romance is good too, tho some of the stories are more teasers than completed (just a heads up) 3mo
Eyelit Also, is Nimona split into two volumes now? Or did the library just give you two copies? 3mo

4.5🌟 I've seen this recommended a bunch, and man, I see why. It had many fun moments along with a punch of feels. The art is fun, and while the magical lore of the world isn't explored in depth, it is still imaginative and rich. I read this book in one sitting, and I think I'm going to have to purchase a copy of it for my own collection.

“My name is Ballister Blackheart, but I‘m sure you know that already. You may think of me as your enemy, but I have only ever fought against the Institution, not against you. Your true enemies are the ones who have beaten you down and kept you in compliance through fear. … They took away your power. It‘s time to take it back.”

This is one of my all time favorites. I love gifting it to young readers and reread it once a year! A shape-shifter wants to join up with the local villian and become a sidekick. The artwork is so cute and it executes humor, but with an emotional underside so well. I am still in love with these characters and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Getting used to working again, and boy howdy it‘s not fun. 😂

1. Yes, I think graphic novels have more description and outside narration.
2. Tagged! 👆🏻
3. I think both are great, and it really just depends on how well it fits the story.

I was so beyond impressed with this book! All three of the main characters were so beautifully written- they show you that it‘s easy to make assumptions about people, but that these assumptions are rarely ever true. This book was funny, cute, heartwarming, exciting, and so much more! And even better?? I got it for free with Amazon Prime!!

TheBookKeepers Agree completely! Just finished and I adored this! 13mo

I devoured this graphic novel and immediately handed it to my daughter who read it in 1 sitting. I loved Nimona! She‘s sassy, smart, sarcastic, sweet, and the best evil villain sidekick I have ever encountered in a book. Deeply flawed but utterly lovable, she is unquestionably the star of this comic, but the relationship between Blackheart and Goldenloin (love these names!) is a very close second. So much fun!!

TerriGreen Loved this one. I remember laughing out loud! Wish this was a series. 2y
Madelpadel I agree with everything you‘ve said! Such strong characters in this book. I love the layers of them all, and how they show you that you can‘t just make assumptions about people 2y

This is one where I loved the characters, but the fantasy world felt a bit undeveloped. Considering this is a stand alone, I was left with too many questions at the end about details left out.

I‘ll be joining in on the #EasterExtravaganza organized by @Andrew65 this week!

I‘ve only read one book this month, so these may be crazy goals, but it‘s spring break which means no remote learning this week. Dr Hubby kept his vacation days, so that helps too.

🔹GOALS: Read 4 books🔹
✨ Finish The Bookshop on the Corner - I‘m 50 pgs in
✨ Read one graphic novel - Nimona
✨ Maybe read my #bookspin books. Or Iron Trial, like I promised Maya.

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, good luck with your goals 😊👍 2y

Such a good story! At first it all seems pretty light, despite the high body count, but then it whacks you with personal histories and science and a shady government. SO PICK.

Book 10 of the year, finished Feb 11, audio

The author focused a lot on building the characters but I just couldn't get into the world she was creating for them to live in. We'd be cruising along in a magic filled medieval world with kings, peasants, and dragons but also superheros and villains and ~whoop~ let's pop off to the tech filled science fair??

That said, it is on my list for Family Road Trips, my kids would probably enjoy it.
