The first time I read Nimona I was a little ambivalent about it. I kind of wish I had read it while it was being published on the web (I followed Noelle Stevenson's tumblr but never read Nimona until it was published). I think the serialization would have helped me enjoy it more the first time.
I enjoyed it more when I reread it earlier this year. I was feeling bad but found the story uplifting. Sometimes monster girls' stories are just what you need.
This comic was confusing, but that's OK. Mostly it was weird to me that the girls are supposed to be 12. They look a lot older to me but maybe that's because I was born in the year the book is set?
I just kept reading because 1. I liked these supposedly 12-year-old girls 2. The book is gorgeous and 3. I had faith that the story was going somewhere. And I still do. I'll definitely keep up with this one.
