“Misanthropic musings and crosspatch soliloquies from a curvy young goth…
Great fun.” – Tim Martin, The Independent on Sunday
“There is a little of Nemi in all of us – this I believe to be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” – Tori Amos
Nemi Montoya, the cool, romantic, strong-willed, cynical, sexy and all-too-honest twenty-something goth, returns to share more frank and hilarious moments in NEMI Vol. 3 [Titan Books, 25 September 2009, £9.99].
In this hilarious and beautifully illustrated third volume, Nemi and her blue-haired best friend Cyan tackle the big questions in life: what’s it all for? How can one find love and contentment? Why are men all so useless? And, most crucially of all… what time does the bar close? This brand new hardback collection from artist Lise Myhre also features an introduction by New York performance artist, poet and vocalist Nicole Blackman.
Created when Myhre “set out to find an imaginary friend” and named after Italy’s ancient (and supposedly enchanted) Lake Nemi and fictional hero Inigo Montoya of The Princess Bride (one of Myhre’s favorite films), Lise Myhre’s Nemi Montoya is a goth-tinged heroine for the modern twenty-something, tapping into all the fun, fervour and frustrations of the 21st Century woman. Already a superstar in Europe, Nemi’s first volume has reprinted multiple times, and the strip continues to appear daily in Metro across 16 major cities.
