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!
I have been on the look out for more graphic novels to read ever since I read The Dark Hunters and Lenore: Noogies. Both graphic novels were thoroughly entertaining so when I was offered Nemi, I was once again hoping for plenty of humor and some fun reading. Unfortunately, I don’t know if it’s because this book is a translation from Norwegian or what, but the humor is just not there.
I didn’t laugh once and I found the huge paragraphs in the bubbles to be way too much for a comic strip. Comics are supposed to be light reading and to have to squint to read so much in a bubble, took away from the the ease of reading a book like this. The art work was ok, nothing that blew me away and made me oooo and ahhh over it.
Overall, I am pretty disappointed in Nemi as I had high hopes for a really fun graphic novel but was instead kind of bored by it. Here’s hoping the next graphic novel I read will be more to my liking as I really do enjoy reading them.
