    For most stories there really are only three different types of endings: Mind blowing, average and underwhelming. And as lame as it seems the ending really is mind blowing. I’ve never read a series that demolishes its own status quo as much as this series. With some endings they just end the way you think they will which isn’t bad, but it’s not exciting. Courtney Crumrin does sort of end the way you’d expect, but the presentation and extra elements are what really blow you away. If you missed this volume of the franchise then I would encourage you to track down the issues in print or digital and if you’re a trade waiter then you’re going to be pleased when this hits your hands.

    The final pages with Courtney and the Crumrin clan leaving Hillsbourough hits all the right notes and is something you would want from a final issue of a story. The very last page especially with Aloysius' ghost looking on from his home. It's haunting, yet comforting at the same time. Should Naifeh ever want to return to this world, he could, but from the sound of things Courtney's story has been told, and what a story it was. Read Full Review

    With the main character a little lost, and having to be reintroduced to her world, the issue works well as an introduction to Courtney and her world and delivers a pretty good tale. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Mar 4, 2013

    The ending of "Courtney Crumrin" has a lovely, unlooked-for happiness suffusing it. There's a twist about the narrator that is both surprising and poignant, and it feels like a gift for both Courtney and the reader. Naifeh also flashes briefly into the lives of supporting characters like Alicia and Gareth. Everyone gets their due. Normally, I'd say this magical, mystical wrap-up was too tidy, but the way that Naifeh reveals these twists, it feels perfect. The last five pages are a dazzling compression of time and emotion. It's worth reading or re-reading the whole "Courtney Crumrin" series, just to get the full impact of those moments. Read Full Review
