    Noelle Stevenson’s “Nimona” Comes to a Close, Set for Print in 2015

    After two years, Noelle Stevenson’s wonderful fantasy webcomic “Nimona” has come to a close. A fantasy series in which the young Nimona becomes the sidekick of the supervillain Lord Blackheart, the book has gone from a rambunctious comedy to a rather moving epic, to the extent that when I read that the comic was ending I got what those on tumblr (where I follow Stevenson for updates) commonly refer to as feels.

    Stevenson notes that this isn’t quite the end of “Nimona” yet, as a published edition is set for May 2015 and is already up for pre-order. The published edition will come with “extra pages, sketches, and an exclusive book-only epilogue,” which is an added bonus to having a physical artifact edition of a great series. The serialization of the story will be missed, though, as I was quite a fan of Stevenson’s art and the way the story repeatedly subverted my expectations of it.

    I’m sure we’ll talk a lot more about the series when the print edition comes around. If you’ve never read “Nimona” before, you can start from the beginning right here. For everyone else, I think now’s the time to give Stevenson a well-deserved round of applause.

    In the meantime, there’s always “Lumberjanes.”

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."
