Nimona is a fantasy comic by the American comics writer and artist Noelle Stevenson.
Stevenson started Nimona as a webcomic while a student at Maryland Institute College of Art. The webcomic was first published in June 2012 and doubled as Stevenson's senior thesis. Nimona has been published in the form of a graphic novel by HarperCollins in 2015, and 20th Century Fox Animation acquired rights to create an animated film adaption of the webcomic that same year.
Nimona is set in a universe that combines fantasy and science fiction tropes. The main character Nimona is a wild and slightly evil young shapeshifter and the sidekick of the supervillain Lord Ballister Blackheart. Blackheart is a knight turned scientist who's pursued by his nemesis/love interest, Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin of the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics. The first five chapters focus on the differences in outlook between Nimona and boss, as well as their plots against the secretly villainous Institution.
