Lee, of the Teen Advisory Board, has this to say about Nimona:

Nimona is a graphic novel version of a web comic about Ballister Blackheart, (a supervillain who wants to get back at Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and the Institution of Law enforcement and Heroics for blowing up his arm, and taking away his chances for being a hero) and Nimona (a shapeshifter sidekick with a shifty past). Nimona's true story is slowly given to you as the graphic novel goes on and there are many twists and turns that allow you to mostly understand but want to turn the page. I read Nimona in one day and I really liked it because of the witty humor and awesome characters, but I think that there should be a second book because the ending is kind of a cliffhanger.

Now a Netflix animated film!

Nimona is the New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from ND Stevenson, based on his beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, “If you’re 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 ND 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.
