Nubia: Real One Volume 1

Regular price $16.99


Can you be a hero...if society doesn't see you as a person?

Nubia has always been a little bit...different. As a baby she showcased Amazonian-like strength by pushing over a tree to rescue her neighbor's cat. But despite her having similar abilities, the world has no problem telling her that she's no Wonder Woman. And even if she were, they wouldn't want her. Every time she comes to the rescue, she's reminded of how people see her: as a threat. Her moms do their best to keep her safe, but Nubia can't deny the fire within her, even if she's a little awkward about it sometimes. Even if it means people assume the worst.

When Nubia's best friend, Quisha, is threatened by a boy who thinks he owns the town, Nubia will risk it all--her safety, her home, and her crush on that cute kid in English class--to become the hero society tells her she isn't.

From the witty and powerful voice behind A Blade So Black, and with endearing and expressive art by Robyn Smith, comes a vital story for today about equality, identity, and kicking it with your squad.

Cute Read; Recommend it for Teens

I enjoyed the read very much; Robyn and L.L. Make a great team! I really enjoyed the character design and coloring. It felt very sweet and reminded me of the queer dreams of my own high school days. Nubia is a great character with a lot of room for growth in future volumes. The relationships between Nubia and her friends and family are also well constructed and very sweet, which I feel offsets some of the violence in the story. I’ll definitely buy the next volume!
