[Review] - Nemi Vol. III

Title: Nemi Vol. III
Author: Lise Myhre
Series: Nemi
Genre: Graphic Novel/Humor
Release Date: November 3, 2009

I received this book for review from Titan Books

Summary: 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!

Thoughts: This was my first time reading Nemi and I absolutely loved it. I'm definitely gonna pick up volumes I & II. Nemi is great, she is laugh out loud funny. Speaks her mind and doesn't care who likes it or not. Her attitude and dark humor are what make her lovable to me. Nemi is addicted to sweets, and a fan of Lord of the Rings. That's a girl after my own heart! Ms. Myhre has created a endearing character both in the art and personality.

Nemi is a comic strip from Norway, created in 1997. She can also be found in the UK in the Metro newspaper. All three volumes of Nemi are also available in the U.S.

Score: 4 Stars

Author Website: I couldn't find an official website, but both the author and comic strip have Wikipedia pages: Lise Myhre & Nemi

Nemi Series:
Nemi Vol. I
Nemi Vol. II
Nemi Vol. III


  1. Tried to look for a Norwegian site but didn't find one of those either so yeah perhaps she does not have one..anyway.

    I love Nemi, I fell for her when I realised she loved LOTR! :D
    She is so funny, this other newspaper here and one Finnish publishes the strips, and I so wished my daily paper did too

  2. I'm curious about these. They sound neat but they look awesome :)
