Nemi III – Spotlight & Review


Nemi III by Lise Myhre

  • Hardcover: 144 pages
  • Publisher: Titan Books (Nov 3 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1845766156
  • ISBN-13: 978-1845766153
  • Book Description

    “Meet Nemi Montoya, the vegetarian, cynical/romantic, hilariously honest twenty-something goth, in this brand new collection from artist Lise Myhre!

    Hang out in the pub with Nemi and her friends, including her flatmate, the blue-haired Cyan; hear her opinions on romance and dating; watch her watch TV in her untidy flat; learn how she feels about birch trees, spiders and blondes; and generally experience the highs and lows of being Nemi in the modern world!

    A superstar in her native Norway thanks to the immense success of Nemi — also reprinted in the 1.35 million-circulation UK Metro newspaper — you too can enter Lise Myhre’s witty, wonderful world!”

    My Thoughts:

    I really enjoyed this graphic novel, but it had nothing to do with the fact that I can totally relate to this character… really! Ok, that made it even better for me, but Lise Myhre’s Nemi is everything the book description says. A hilarious, cynical, honest, sarcastic Goth who goes through the ups and downs of dating, drinking, pubbing and flubbing like all twenty-somethings do.

    The book/graphic novel is a wonderful collection in color and a must have for anyone who loves to laugh, who loves a woman with attitude, badittude and a wicked sense of humor. Deliciously goth and not afraid to be who she wants to be, Nemi is definitely fun to follow. I’ll be looking for more from this artist.

    Lenore: Noogies – Spotlight & Review


    Lenore NoogiesLenore: Noogies by Roman Dirge

  • Hardcover: 128 pages
  • Publisher: Titan Books (Oct 13 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1848565208
  • ISBN-13: 978-1848565203
  • Book Description

    “Take a trip into the dark, surreal world of a little dead girl with a knack for (often) unintentional mayhem in this remastered, gothic classic, newly-coloured and presented in glorious hardcover!

    Lenore might only be small, but her talent for mischief — and occasional wanton destruction — is anything but. Featuring stories about limbless cannibals, clock monsters, cursed vampire dolls, taxidermied friends, an obssesed would-be lover and more fuzzy animal mutilations than should be legal, never has the term ‘something for everyone’ seemed more sinister and bizarre.

    A massive cult hit on both sides of the Atlantic, Lenore is one of the funniest, darkest, cutest, creepiest characters on the marketplace today.”

    My Thoughts:

    Roman Dirge’s twisted dark sense of humor in the creation of Lenore is side-splittingly captivating! If you like a dose of the undead mixed in with your day, then Lenore is the way to go. Mr Dirge’s ability to capture the childlike thought process of a cute but macabre little dead girl makes for some hysterical situations and some truly wonderful artwork captured in this graphic novel.

    I highly recommend Lenore: Noogies to anyone who has a taste for all things gothic, humorous, creepy yet adorable and artwork that brings the character and her little mishaps story to vivid life.
