Reviews - What do customers think about Courtney Crumrin, Vol. 1: Courtney Crumrin & The Night Things (Courtney Crumrin (Graphic Novels))?

Easily-corrected errors mar an otherwise fine book  Jan 3, 2008
Ted Naifeh, Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things (Oni, 2002)

A fun little tale about a girl whose parents drag her out to the very odd suburbs so the family can take care of ailing Uncle Aloysius, who doesn't seem to need taking care of at all. Courtney comes of age, and discovers her powers as a sorceress, under the tutelage of Uncle Al, coming up with inventive, and sometimes quite nasty, ways of fitting in at her new school. Very amusing stuff, this, and exceptionally dark (one wonders how much of this rubbed off on Holly Black; the more recent Spiderwick Chronicles bear more than a passing resemblance). Some rather odd typos (which one doesn't expect in hand-lettered work, to be sure) and a couple of non sequiturs that made me wonder if I was missing a page, but greatly enjoyable nonetheless. ***
Graphic SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
I didn't think I would like this till more than one person mentioned it was pretty decent. While aimed at kids, it has enough to interest the older reader.

Courtney and family move in with a wealthy and quite odd uncle. It is only the kid that finds out what is really strange about the town, the places surrounding it, and what her other relative really gets up to.

She gets in over her heard more than once.

great art, fun writing  Jun 21, 2007
I'd put it in the same category as "Bone" and "Sparks: An Urban Fairytale", for fun story-telling, great art, strong female protagonists, and sly humor. Also recommended for anyone who liked "Thief of Time" or "Something Wicked This Way Comes" as a kid.
+++  May 19, 2007
Ted Naifehs work always keeps my intrest. This series is no exception. Its not quite as drastic as his other work but a cute book regardless.
Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things  Nov 11, 2006
The only "good thing" was Courtney on the front cover. We have been creating books, graphic novels, and paintings for over two decades and more. The way Courtney was dawn on the cover, she looked neat. The rest, however, was extremely disappointing
