There are knights, dragons, ray-guns, and lines like: “unhand that science!” What more could you ask for? Nimona opens with simple yet funny chapters about a shapeshifting girl with aspirations of villainy and gradually escalates (in both art and story) into a sweeping narrative exploring corruption, identity, betrayal, and forgiveness. Dedicated “To all the Monster girls,” and featuring a titular character who is both monster and girl (or perhaps neither) Nimona is a poignant must-read for all ages.
