    I'm always willing to pick up an Indie comic, especially one written by a name I recognize. This one did not disappoint. It's funny at times, sweet at times, pleasantly subversive without being heavy-handed or preachy. I'm reading through it with my little boy right now, and he'...

    Lord Ballister Blackheart is a dastardly villain. Well, not really. He could be with the right little push. Enter Nimona! Nimona shows up one day and announces that she is now his side kick. She has some kick ass powers of shape-shifting. She can turn into any living thing. Ev...

    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars So this is definitely one of the cutest graphic novels I've read in 2017. I first want to highlight how great of a character Nimona is. I mean, just look at her. She's a big girl. Shaved head. Piercings. Oh, and she's a fucking shapeshifter. She's a ...

    THIS BOOK WAS SO MUCH FUN. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS AND I LOVED IT FOREVER AND EVER. Lord Blackheart was such a great, complex character, and Nimona was a star. Goldenloin was everything. I loved it. Re-reading immediately. Lending it to everyone I know. ...

    re-read in 2018 I actually listened to a full-cast audio production of Nimona this time around, and while it wasn?t quite as enjoyable (the art is half of what makes it so awesome!) it was a fun listen. I?d recommend it if you don?t usually like graphic novels! first read i...

    Notorious villain - Ballister Blackheart - gets a new sidekick to help him wreak havoc, obtain vengeance, and fight the Institution. But his new sidekick - Nimona - is a shapeshifter with a mysterious past and a mind of her own. Plus, he also has a love/hate relationship with his frien...

    AMEI. Uma estória linda sobre compaixão e amizade, contada através de um humor leve e gostoso. Brinca com o clichê dos vilões e mocinhos de uma forma muito interessante! Essa graphic novel é obrigatória na estante de quem ama esse formato. Minha única reclamação é que não...

    At first shift, Nimona is the story of a skilled, yet impulsive, villain side kick and her ornery master, Ballister Blackheart. I was expecting the classic mentor-mentee relationship ala Batman and Robin, but I was pleasantly surprised that it's way more than that. Let's just say i...

    MY HEART! Dragons! Kitties! Magic! Gay! Science! Friendship! ALL THE THINGS! Humorous and heartwarming, this is a perfectly realised world where science and magic co-exist quite happily, and a dark hearted villain gains an adorably dangerous new sidekick - Nimona. A shape-c...

    I originally didn't plan on reading Nimona. I did not know about its history as a webcomic before sitting down to read it, and didn't know what to expect beyond the hype. But when I got it in a subscription box, I thought I'd give it a go. Ultimately, as per usual, the hype did the sto...

    That ending has me so confused but the art style of this is great and the humor was totally up my alley! But Nimona was definitely not the character I was expecting her to be, and that was kinda upsetting. ...

    ??I can?t have a kid following me around all day.?? ??I?m not a kid. I?M A SHARK.?? Pouahaha. What a story! What witty dialogs! Filled with humour, adventure, magic and friendship, it will certainly charm and entertain the hell out of you. This title u...

    Nimona es una jovencita cambiaformas que decide convertirse en la ayudante de un temible súpervillano -con un oscuro pasado, por cierto-. Hasta ahí, puede parecer simplón. Pero no os dejéis engañar por eso. Nimona es divertida, tierna, con humor. A medida que avanza la trama se va...

    4.8 Stars Warning: Spoilers and mawkish sentiment ahead, and very few jokes (though that will be a relief to most of you). At first blush, Nimona is the tale of a precocious but powerful girl?s quest to apprentice herself to the villainous Lord Ballister Blackheart as he fight...

    This review contains *spoilers*. I?ve been meaning to read this graphic novel for a few months now and I?m really happy that I finally did. It had me hooked right from the beginning and wouldn?t let go till the end. I loved it! This story follows Nimona, a shapeshifter, ...

    This was very good but it made me sad. :( So I can't give it five stars. I was too sad. Lord Blackheart is a "villain." But actually not. He's a good guy who never wants anyone to die and is actually only fighting against the evil Institution which rules this land. He acts like an o...

    3.5 stars. All I do is reading graphic novels and drinking tea these days. I?m pretty sure some shape-shifter took possession of me, wrote all these evil plans to take over the world (wow, they?re specific) changed my coffee into water sorry, tea and forgot to turn off t...

    What an absolute little gem of a story... this was like the definition of heartwarming and hilarious! I don't read a lot of graphic novels (ok, like none) but I absolutely LOVED this. It's this awesome mix of medieval + science/technology with magic, knights, dragons, and villains ...

    "You can't just go around murdering people. There are rules, Nimona!" Nimona was such a fluffy yet meaningful read. It proves as a light escape from reality and into the world of dragons, heroic laws, good villains, broken doors and mostly SHARKS!!! I loved the art-style and ...
