From Noelle Stevenson, the New York Times bestselling author-illustrator of Nimona, comes a captivating, honest illustrated memoir that finds her turning an important corner in her creative journey—and inviting readers along for the ride.
In a collection of essays and personal mini-comics that span eight years of her young adult life, author-illustrator Noelle Stevenson charts the highs and lows of being a creative human in the world.
Whether it’s hearing the wrong name called at her art school graduation ceremony or becoming a National Book Award finalist for her debut graphic novel, Nimona, Noelle captures the little and big moments that make up a real life, with a wit, wisdom, and vulnerability that are all her own.
Nimona is the New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, “If you’re going to read one graphic novel this year, make it this one.”
Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel has been hailed by critics and fans alike as the arrival of a “superstar” talent (NPR.org).
Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.
But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

Fans of Noelle Stevenson's beloved and bestselling Nimona won't want to miss her moving memoir-in-pictures, The Fire Never Goes Out, featuring short essays, mini-comics, and photographs that span eight eventful years in Noelle's young adult life.
Nimona é uma metamorfa sem limites nem papas na língua, cujo maior sonho é ser comparsa de Lorde Ballister Coração-Negro, o maior vilão que já existiu. Mas ela não sabia que seu herói possuía escrúpulos. Menos ainda uma deliberada missão.
Até conhecer Nimona, Ballister fazia planos que jamais davam certo. Felizmente, a garota tem muitas sugestões para reverter esse quadro. Infelizmente, a maioria envolve explosões, sangue e mortes. Agora, Coração-Negro não só tem que enfrentar seu arqui-inimigo e ex-amigo, o célebre e heroico Sir Ambrosius Ouropelvis, mas também impedir que a fiel comparsa destrua todo o reino ao tentar ajudá-lo.
Uma história subversiva e irreverente que mistura magia, ciência, ação e muito humor sobre camadas e mais camadas de reflexão – entre uma batalha e outra, é claro.
“Uma graphic novel deliciosamente original que subverte os estereótipos e arquétipos da fantasia.” National Book Award
