The Nemi cartoon series has been a daily delight for
readers of the Metro since 2003. The wonderfully funny
series about the cool, romantic, strong-willed, cynical, sexy
and all-too-honest Nemi Montoya now appears for the first
time in book form. Enter Nemi's fabulous world, and experience
Lise Myhre's honest and hilarious cartoon series...
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.
is the creation of Lise Myhre and first appeared in London's
Metro newspaper in 2003. This hardback graphic novel
collects together some of Nemi's best strips. This is basically
a sideways look at life through the eyes of a young goth girl
who has a dull office job, and socialises in the evenings
in some of London's trendy clubs and pubs. Obviously part
autobiographical, Nemi is easy to relate to even if you are
not a goth yourself.
is surrounded by stupid people who don't really want very
much in life, she has far too many one night stands, and she
is a geek at heart - she ponders the downside to owning a
DeLorean in one strip.
have really pulled out all the stops to bring fans a collection
they can be proud to own. This hardback edition has a fine,
glossy paper stock and some nice backgrounds to some of the
pages. There is an introduction by the creator as well as
a brief Q&A.
you've not met Nemi yet, this is a perfect excuse to get know
her a little better.
