    If you've never read Naifeh's previous "Courtney Crumrin" comics, please do yourself a favor and check this new series out. With full-color collections of the originals just around the bend, it'll be easy to pick up the earlier stories if you like what you see. I say that not because you'll need to do so, but rather because you'll want to. "Courtney Crumrin" is a winner from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Courtney and her Night Things may have been out of our sight for a while, but she's coming back swinging to what could be her biggest adventure yet. Naifeh, while has been off doing other things, this is his world and where he shines the most. The best part is older fans of the series will feel right at home, and new readers can jump right in. As a long time fan, I hope you'll join me. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin October Jun 7, 2017

    With an interesting cliffhanger at the end of the comic, Courtney and the town of Hillsbrough has a lot more story to tell. Ted Naifeh has drawn open the curtain on this show and I believe young readers will really like this story. It has a lot of relatable issues teenagers might share with the characters in this book. Fitting in, finding friends, learning dark magic, and taking advantage of others than learning a lesson the hard way. With mysteries being set up for upcoming issues I'm sure Courtney will be at the helm of the storm. The comic has good character development and a nice mild haunting to it. It will be interesting to see how this world of magic and lore will unfold. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Apr 30, 2012

    Naifeh's usual gothic style is to be found here, and it's as pleasing as ever. His deceptively simple character designs are contrasted by the textured backdrops and supernatural creatures that lurk within them. Most notable about this latest Courtney Crumrin effort, though, is it's presented in full color. In the past, Crumrin always looked as though they worked best in black and white, given the cynical nature of the title character and the dark, eerie elements that swirled around her. But I have to admit the full-color version is even more appealing to the eyes. I think that's in part because Colorist Warren Wucinich has opted for a muted palette. There's something of a black-and-white vibe at play, because the colors never seem to stray far from a duller, even grayer tone. Read Full Review
