Nimona is a monster…or at least she can turn into one. She becomes sharks, dragons and wolves, and resorts to violence quickly. But is she and the villain she sidekicks for – “Ballister Blackheart, the biggest name in supervillainy!” – the truly evil ones, or will their friendship and a bit of empathy on both their parts make them the heroes in the end?
Reminiscent of the popular “Hark! A Vagrant!” series, this web comic turned graphic novel by Nicole Stevenson will be a great hit among middle age and young adult readers, especially those who are struggling with being different or the odd one out.
