award-winning webcomic that migrated to the page, Nimona
is the story of a supervillain named Lord Ballister
Blackheart who is locked in half-hearted battle with
superhero and all-around good guy, Sir Ambrosius
Goldenloin. Neither seems to get far, Goldenloin is able
to stop Blackheart, but never wipe him out, and
Blackheart has schemes that never seem to succeed. That
is, until Nimona arrives, begging Blackheart to take her
on as a sidekick. She has some good ideas, and a nifty
shape-shifting ability, but Blackheart is a bit pained
to see how zealous she is to do evil, because Blackheart
has a reason for why he never lets his own evil schemes
succeed. Meanwhile, Nimona is acting a little unstable
and concerning details about her past are leaking out. A
subversive gem that should be the first graphic novel
you grab this year! A New York Times bestseller! Winner
of dozens of awards! (Mike Fleming, Teacher-Librarian
