Courtney Crumrin: Book 1: The Night Things

Courtney Crumrin: Night Things Volume 1 - Ted Naifeh

Star Rating Art:  5 Stars

Star Rating Story: 5 Stars


Self purchase, hard back. Special Colored edition.


First Impression: Purple, what can be bad? I like it, it doesn’t seem to sugarcoat childhood. Also a great introduction. And I normally skip them.


Art/Colors:  Loving the artwork and colors


Cover: Beautiful. Can’t go wrong with Purple.

This book is so freaking awesome.  I LOVE it. I so identify with Courtney Crumrin.  I never talked to people or had many friends. And I was always cranky and hated people.  Courtney Crumrin is all that and more. She see’s spirits/faeries/goblins (which I love) and her parents are pretentious snobs who have no clue what is going on around them. She does have someone who sees the world like she does, Uncle A.  My favorite story (4 in book) is the one where she babysits. Hysterical!!!!  Great art, great story, generally FREAKING AWESOME. Time to go order the next one.
