Courtney Crumrin Volume 4: Monstrous Holiday Special Edition Courtney Crumrin s adventures continue this time in a newly remastered, full color edition Courtney and Uncle Aloysius European vacation has brought them into the heart of a country rich with mystical history and tradition At first, eastern Europe seems like the perfect place for Courtney to strengthen her abilities, but just as Courtney begins to tap into the mystery of the old country, she comes face to face with overwhelming magic and even larger moral ambiguities They have been released before, first as comics and then as graphic novels in paperback format, but I m delighted to incorporate the hardbacks into my home library and share the paperbacks with others You keep writing stories about Courtney, Ted, and I ll keep buying them I hope to watch her as she grows into the fascinating woman she no doubt will become Between the Fey and her uncle, she may very well become someone to be reckoned with Look out selfish, cruel people, Courtney s on her way. I have been enjoying the hardback editions of Courtney Crumrin They are an interesting mix of the lost and neglected loner with magic and mayhem Who among us who weren t members of the popular set growing up can t identify with a kid who feels different, left out and alone How many of us might have wished for magical powers or super powers Ted Naifeh s stories are dark, but not dismally so They usually have a twist at the end, too Over the course of the first three volumes, Courtney grows from a neophyte in the black arts to a confident conjurer and is not above using her arts to get back at those who treated her badly But in this fourth volume, it is revealed that her confidence is only on the surface and her doubts, despair and loneliness leave her vulnerable to a darkness unlike any Courtney has experienced And when she surrenders to that darkness WOW I had to go back and read it again because I couldn t believe the story would take so dark a turn so suddenly Ted Naifeh s art is, at best, middle of the road I ve certain seen work by quite a few comic book artists who are superior at their craft But it is the combination of Ted s simple art and the story which shines Ted is sparing of both pages and panels sometimes a battle, which in a superhero book would have been spread over the entire issue takes place in only one or two panels here sometimes to the detriment of the story Ted is trying to tell But other times Ted gets it astoundingly right The scene where Courtney surrenders to the darkness could have gone on for most of the issue, but in only a few panels, Ted shows us the seduction of the darkness to the lonely waif Courtney, the despair that drove her to embrace the darkness, and in one single word balloon, Courtney s realization that she had made a tragic mistake Ted is a much better story teller than I had given him credit for, and I am looking forward to the fifth, and possibly final volume. I enjoyed this addition to my Crumrin series, just because seeing of Uncle A and Courtney s relationship always brings a smile to my face Its ups, and its downs. Great series, reminds me of the times when there was imagination in stories. I like these stories I have the original black and white versions and picked up the color to get hardcover versions the stories are very dark and well told. It was shipped out fast The book was beyond my expectations, like new my daughter is reading the series and it s a bday present I m extremely happy. Enjoyed picking up where I left off. C est une super s rie avec un beau graphisme.C est une jolie collection avec ce format sp cial qui en plus est en couleur. Love it
