Item description for Courtney Crumrin, Vol. 2: Courtney Crumrin & The Coven of Mystics (Courtney Crumrin (Graphic Novels)) by Ted Naifeh...

Courtney Crumrin is back in a new adventure that pits her against the town's most powerful warlocks and witches, the Coven of Mystics! When the night things of Courtney's community start causing trouble, it's up to the girl to find out why. The coven blames the hobgoblin initially but quickly turns its ire to Skarrow, a night thing in service to the town's most reclusive witch. Uncle Aloysius doesn't believe the disturbances are that easy to explain. His dismissal of the Coven's alleged culprit starts Courtney down a twisted path that leads to the true mastermind behind all the horror! But does Courtney stand a chance against a being that powerful and manipulative?

Reviews - What do customers think about Courtney Crumrin, Vol. 2: Courtney Crumrin & The Coven of Mystics (Courtney Crumrin (Graphic Novels))?

Courtney Crumrin and the Coven of Mystics  Nov 11, 2006
A brother in law recommended this book. What he didn't tell us was it was a comic book, not a novel. The art is bad and the story is even worse. Based on his opinion, we bought one and, frankly, threw it in the garbage.
Cute!  Mar 13, 2006
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes gothic horror and humor. It's nice that the hero in this book is a heroine and a cool one on top of that... ;)
Brilliant On Every Level  Sep 27, 2004
Starring the most lovable young curmudgeon in comic book history, Courtney Crumrin, "Coven Of Mystics" is one of the most enderaing, laugh-out loud hilarious, tragic, bittersweet, imaginative and triumphant books I've ever read, comic book or prose, fiction or non-fiction. It's also one of the scariest, with the Rawhead 'N Bloody Bones bog monster more frightening than most of the nasties conceived of by Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft. As far as comedic value goes, I rank it with "Fawlty Towers", "Fierce Creatures", and "A Fish Called Wanda", and the "Gon" comics. On mix of triumph and tragedy, fear and delight and whimsey, think "E.T.", "Bambi", and even "Simon Birch".

With a superb cast of characters - on par with the cast of the "Batman" or "X-Men" lines of comics, and unique, quirky art so expressive, especially in certain panels, that it sums up the expression 'A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words' perhaps better than anything I've ever encountered. As a bonus, the back of the book reprints, free of words, blurbs or logos, the original covers to the individual comics of the mini-series this volume reprints.

If you like this (or love it like I do), I'd also recommend the following (or if you're into the following I'd recommend "Coven Of Mystics") - {comics} - the other Courtney titles, "Gon" and "Bone" (for starters); {novels}- "The Gnole" by Alan Aldridge, Steve Boyett and Maxine Miller; "Balook" by Piers Anthony; "Duncton Wood" by William Horwood (definately not for younger readers despite a huge abundance of beauty and charm); {movies} - "Spirited Away", "Kiki's Delivery Service", "Fairy Tale: A True Story" "Castle In The Sky", "Fluke" (young kids should watch with a grown-up), "Princess Mononoke" (same deal as "Fluke")
More wonderful tales.  Apr 11, 2004
Ted Naifeh has done it again, proving he is one of the most amazing voices working in comics today. The tales here are a bit darker than his previous Courtney Crumrin series, but character has grown a bit since first discovering the world of magick, so it works well. Beautiful art, a compelling storyline, and a heroine who anyone who's ever felt alone can relate to. Wonderful work, Ted!
Even better than the first one  Jan 1, 2004
I bought the first comic of Courtney Crumrin on a whim, and I eagerly bought the newest installment, the Coven of Mystics. The plot of this one is even better than the first one. It adds depth to all the existing characters and also introduces us to some promising new ones, such as Ms. Crisp, Courtney's new no-nonsense teacher, and Tobermory, the leader of the cats. The Coven of Mystics also alludes to the politics of the magical community that Courtney is only beginning to venture into.

Basically this story is about love, whether romantic or familial. The story takes many turns, some of them can be terrifying and bad things sometimes happen to good people. It's a very rewarding graphic novel and one well worth your money.
