Shape-shifter Nimona convinces Lord Ballister Blackheart that he needs her help to carry out his evil plans and defeat Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin. The latter is with the Instiution of Law Enforcement and Heroics, and both Nimona and Blackheart think it’s not as great as everyone thinks it is. Hilarity and destruction ensue as nothing goes according to their wacky plans in this witty and inventive graphic novel. Nimona is an endearing and smart character, and I dare you not to fall in love with her (in all of her many forms).— Jennifer
