Has anyone else read this series? It's pretty solid, if aimed at a lower age range.
I'm surprised at the relative lack of attention it has.
>>
Nothing? Nobody?

Fine, then, I'll just dump the first volume by chapter.
>>
>>78257420
It was great, until the ongoing started and it all went to hell with a terrible ending.
>>
>>78257840
>>78257838
The only thing I didn't like about the ending was the fact it was all tied up...

...actually come to think of it, that ending was pretty wonky.
>>
>>78258346
And that wraps it up for the first issue/chapter!
>>
>>78257814

Not sure what you're expecting.

THIS
>>78258366
thank you OP, tough I liked it more when it was published B&W, don't know why...
>>
>>78257874
>>78257838
not sure, but it seemed like he had to wrap up all the story pretty quickly at the end. I wonder if he had planned a longer run but didn't do well enough to have that many issues to do it.

I greatly enjoy this series.
but perhaps its for the best that /co/ doesn't pay too much attention to her considering the usual treatment little girls get on this board.

>>
>>78260728
I don't know, discussion, fanart, crossovers, anything?

>>78261817
Yeah, it's like Bone that way, IMO. But there are like no BW scans out there.

>>78263144
On the plus side, I think that by having the house left to Calpurnia, there's a way open for her to rediscover the magical world.
>>
>>78258366
Courtney Crumrin story times are always God Tier Thanks OP

Also anyone been keeping up with Princess Ug?
I lost track after issue 8 or 9.
>>
>>78264001
No problem.

If we can keep the thread alive, I can probably storytime the rest of the first volume tomorrow.
>>
Call me picky faggot but...
I would have been able to handle this series a LOT better if Courtney just had a nose. I mean, even that discreet pointy triangle shit anime pulls is better than literally having nothing there.
Just looks too weird for me.
>>
>>78264101
Did you like Mandy in the Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy? Faggot.
>>
>>78264216
It worked better for Mandy, but that was probably because the show had a much more simplistic, cartoony art style. Nearly every character had some sort of unique, quirky physical attribute that made it seem like none of them were out of place, like how Grim had a triangle hole nose and Billy had one the size of his face. In this comic, pretty much everyone has a normal nose instead of Courtney, which makes her stand out, in a weird way.
>>
>>78263213
This, very difficult to discuss any series featuring little girls, because the pedofags will just imprint on them, and any chance of a decent conversation will be void.
>>
>>78263144
For most of its run, Courtney Crumrin was released in fits and starts via miniseries and one-shots. I get the impression that Naifeh didn't realize how grueling an ongoing schedule can be and decided he'd rather just end the damn thing.
>>
>>78264294
Oh come on, this isn't /a/.
>>
>>78264034
BUMP

I love this series! The third volume is my favorite. It was nice seeing all the creatures and the plot was interesting. I started reading the ongoing a while back but had to stop collecting due to unemployment. How did it end?
>>
>>78264733
why ask for the ending? download it or wait for a storytime
>>
>>78257420
Thank you. More people should know about Courtney.

The times I've gotten to just chat with the artist were really fun.
Hope i get to do it again.
>>
>>78264733
It finished off a lot of the story threads at once, a bit confusing to explain.
>>
>>78264749
Why ask for anything? Why talk about comics when you can just read them? It looks like people didn't like it so I'd like to know what happened and see discussion on what didn't work for them. Spoilers don't ruin comics for me and I love to read complaints.

Why do anything ever?
>>
>>78257874

The ending was rushed as hell.

I really love the series, /co/ introduced me to it through storytime. It's a nice bleak spin on the 'you're a wizard Harry' cliché.

Also The Twilight King will never not make me sad. ;_;

I just bought my gf the first 3 volumes of this series for her birthday. Those hardcovers feel great.
>>
>>78269591

I really regret not waiting for those and just buying the normal trades.
>>
>>78261817
Same, Naifeh's work is amazing in just black and white. I have the first 3 (or 4? not sure) trades in black and white, I don't really want to buy them again in colour to complete the set...
>>
>>78268696
It's tone really reminds me of Hellboy for some reason.
All I know is it's definitely a series I'd want my future kids to read.

>>78269877

Yeah, for sure.

I'm a sucker for horror anyway, not really into fantasy anymore. But CC just hits the right tone of creepy and sad and magical and teen drama. It just works.
>>
Huh. Read the first volume recently. Wasn't bad.
>>
>>78270053

Storywise the next volumes are stronger, it's worth giving the rest a read too.
>>
>>78269877
Has there been a Hellboy crossover short?
>>
>>78270218
I haven't heard of anything, which is weird since Hellboy is one of the most crossed-over things ever. Maybe because this is such a niche series that started up before the Tumblr crowd showed up.
Which is too bad, really. Somebody should make something, just to say there is.
>>
>I'm surprised at the relative lack of attention it has.

I assure you that few years back we gave it attention. Pervy attention. I even wrote a fapfic at some point, lots of people did art as well.

I vaguely remember trying out the new version (colored) but disliking it. A bit too SJW for my taste, but otherwise OK. I'm a sucker for the loli witch trope, but I'm unaware if there's anything out there that could suit my tastes. I'm into full blown old european style heathenism.

Also check out Polly and the pirates, it's great.
>>
>>78270610

>SJW

See, I never got that impression from this comic, at all. Just teenage angst, and pretty well done teenage angst. I didn't know Naifeh was kinda sjw until I looked up his website.
Not that I mind that much, but I can't follow his twitter, it's a bit too cringy.

He still makes damn good comics.
>>
>>78270741

I understand what you mean because I can't exactly put my finger on it either. There's no example I can show and say "this is SJW" in Courtney Crumrin, yet it left me with a bad aftertaste despite me really liking both the loli witch and the powerful old man theme.
