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.
Fine, then, I'll just dump the first volume by chapter.
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.
And that wraps it up for the first issue/chapter!
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.
>Implying I'm interested in her, when the Dreadful Dutchess is available.
I don't know, discussion, fanart, crossovers, anything?
Yeah, it's like Bone that way, IMO. But there are like no BW scans out there.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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. ;_;
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
