Review: I freakin love this graphic novel! It was fun and humorous and just absolutely amazing. The artwork was also amazing as well.

Nimona is very funny and very childish, but at the same time, she has some sort of maturity to her. I love how Nimona and Ballister began to develop this kind of relationship where they began to care for each other even though they don't show it too much. The rivalry between Ballister and Goldenloin was very hilarious and cute. It reminded me a lot of the relationship of Perry and Dr. Doof from Phineas and Ferb.

It was really short, but for some reason, I kept on putting it down since I was kind of busy. The plot was kind of confusing and complicated and it would help a lot if it was longer.

My Rating: 4/5
