"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" -- provided by publisher.

Fantasy Fun submitted by sdunav on July 9, 2015, 11:02am Although the artwork wasn't totally to my taste, it grew on me. And the plot, the characters, and the tongue-in-cheek jokes were awesome. I think Ballister Blackheart is my favorite anti-hero since Dr. Horrible. His nemesis, Ambrosius Goldenloin, is also pretty cool.

A Sweet Comic with Surprising Depth submitted by nicole on August 17, 2015, 9:29pm This book was AMAZING! Cute, hilarious, and heartbreaking all at the same time. I am obsessed. I want more. It starts out with short snippets of Nimona's life as "evil" sidekick to Barrister Blackheart and at first I thought it would be cute little short story/strips all the way through, but it surprised me as the story really came together and picked up momentum. It was such a sweet book with a surprising depth behind the cute and fluffy exterior. And, of course, the art is so charming. I don't know if more are planned, but I am absolutely on board for more.

Good Read submitted by Whitetnchina on August 30, 2016, 8:55am Wow, so very interesting!

Something Different submitted by Susan Haines on August 9, 2017, 8:54pm I'm really enjoying going through NPR's list of most recommended graphic novels. This one stands out, probably not for what most people would think. I think the character of the "nemesis," Ballaster Blackheart, steals the show from Nimona. There is something admirable and endearing about his character, especially as he is trying to shape his young sidekick into a less-impulsive person.

Fun and Interesting submitted by dntanzer on August 12, 2018, 2:49pm This was an enjoyable book. The writing, storyline, and art were all fun and interesting. I thought characters were well-written and enjoyed learning more about them. The actual ~reveal~ at the end of the book was not something I saw coming, which I really appreciated!
