"Noelle Stevenson has a knack for capturing the humor and heart in a situation in just a few panels." -- Rainbow Rowell, New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor and Park "If you're going to read one graphic novel this year, make it this one." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Sharp visuals, a nifty amalgam of fantasy and science fiction elements, and relationships drawn with complexity, wit, and depth create a world worth returning to again and again." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "At its core, Nimona is a story of rescue. Each of the main characters rescue allies, friendships, the Kingdom, and ultimately, themselves... A vibrant solo work." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "[Stevenson's] voice is clear and precise, her drawings confident, her use of color growing in depth and assurance as the story progresses." -- New York Times "Nimona...is beautifully flawed and refreshingly unstereotypical in a book that is both darkly witty and surprisingly touching. And Nimona is a protagonist to both love and fear." -- The Horn Book "Over the course of the collected Nimona, it's possible to watch artist Noelle Stevenson blossom from a student to a superstar." -- NPR.org "Nimona, with all her flaws, breaks away completely from what women are allowed to be in popular fiction." -- Vanity Fair "Graphic novel fans will finish the book in a gallop and then want to start right back at the first page." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) "Awesome and adorable." -- Ryan North, author of Dinosaur Comics "Funny and vibrant, with wonderful energy in Stevenson's illustrations and a wicked wit in her storytelling." -- Slate "Those of you who haven't read Nimona yet are lucky, because you can buy the fantasy comic in book form instead of waiting for Noelle to post an update twice a week. Seriously, that wait was always excruciating." -- Bustle.com
