    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 friend-turned-nemesis - Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin.

    Heroes & villains, science & magic, bloody battles & so many giggles...

    Well, I enjoyed it ;)

    This was so great! I love Noelle Stevenson's writing & art style. Can she just write a million more graphic novels please?

What made me stop reading it the first time around was the graphics, because this is a style that never appealed to me, but truth is, it just grows on you, as do the characters and every other element.

    Nimona, huge bear hugs to you. Ballister, you’ve got my admiration. Goldenloin,

    . Noelle Stevenson, I wish you’d write a sequel or an happy-ever-after epilogue. I want to see Ballister & Goldenloin kiss.

    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's enjoying it too....

    hilarious, touching, with beautiful art and an interesting ending.

    Great for fans of Vicious by V.E. Schwab and Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl (because the Simon Snow vibes were strong, let's be real)

    They are partnering up as sidekick and supervillain, and are about to wreak some serious havoc.

    Their main 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.

    Reading

    was such an exhilarating journey. I felt as if I was right there with Ballister Blackheart and Nimona on their missions. They work so well together and their dialogue left me with the biggest smile on my face.

    I loved Nimona as a character, her enthusiasm, relatable humor, and her story really added depth to the plot.

    She is as unique as the storyline.

    I also enjoyed Ballister and Goldenloin, even though they definitely had a complicated journey at the beginning, I really liked them together.

    They reminded me a bit of Baz and Simon from

    — I love them with all my heart.

    Oh, and Doctor Blitzmeyer was a very pleasant surprise. I enjoyed reading about her and I would have loved it if Noelle Stevenson had added her journey to uncover the Anomalous Energy Enhancer.

    That ending left me in tears, I couldn’t believe it when Nimona didn’t get a happy ending. I was incredibly sad about it, that was such an emotional part of the story. I was just listening to sad music with tears in my eyes.

    But I kept thinking (until the very last page) ‘what about Nimona? She was left all alone at the end.’

    I was so thankful for the epilogue. I really thought for a second there that Noelle Stevenson would leave it on a cliffhanger.

    So I’ve heard great things about this graphic novel, but the one that really got my attention was Rainbow Rowell’s blurb on the cover:

    . I couldn’t agree more with her, she summed it perfectly up in just those 5 words.

    was an adventurous, heart-gripping, and humorous story — with amazing artwork. I love it!

    Definitely a book that lived up to the hype.
