"Surgida originalmente como un comic web (una historieta publicada en la red), llega ahora la versión impresa de Nimona, extraordinaria novela gráfica capaz de fascinar a jóvenes y adultos por igual. Un libro que ha lanzado al estrellato a su jovencísima autora, Noelle Stevenson. Esta obra combina aventura, acción y humor en un contexto donde cabe lo mismo la fantasía heroica que la ciencia ficción. Todo ello desde una perspectiva rabiosamente contemporánea. Nimona es una joven deslenguada y bravucona, con la habilidad de cambiar de forma a voluntad. Sin pensárselo dos veces, la chica decide convertirse en ayudante del Señor Ballister Blackheart, un villano con un oscurísimo pasado. Ambos personajes vivirán una aventura que sorprenderá a los lectores por sus inesperados giros argumentales" -- http://www.oceanotravesia.mx/ficha-libro.aspx?id=14115

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.

Work Description

From the Publisher:

A National Book Award Longlist Title

The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it "a deadpan epic."

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle 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 is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

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.
