Nimona Book Review

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson is a graphic novel that was originally published as a web novel. Now it’s in book form, which is perfect for presents!

This Christmas, I decided to give a young (teenage) relative a book as my Christmas gift. I must say that, unless your relative is a HUGE book nerd, it’s better to give another more “Christmassy” gift. You wouldn’t want to disappoint someone with an “uncool” present. I gave her Bluetooth headphones as an additional gift.

Nimona book review – my Christmas gift to my a teenaged relative

Nimona is the story of a superpowered sidekick, the titular Nimona, who works for the legendary supervillain Lord Blackheart.

My Nimona Book Review

In one sentence: It’s absolutely hilarious, touching, and has beautiful full-color art.

In addition, it’s a standalone which pretty hard to find these days. That’s a big plus for me since practically every other graphic novel has multiple volumes. That’s why it’s perfect for gifting – the recipient won’t have to buy the other volumes to read the rest of the story.

I do have one small nitpick though. The text was sooooo small! It was readable but I would have preferred much bigger text.

Nimona Sequel

Will there be a sequel? The interesting ending has left fan wanting more so people are asking whether or not there will be a Nimona 2. There has been talk about on the internet but nothing solid thus far. It seems like this is truly a standalone book.
