This is definitely NOT for little children, at least not without some serious parental guidance, as many opening and the ending scenes are very gruesome, and are the stuff of pure nightmares.

Like Harry Potter, these are books which target children ages 7 and higher, however, the material and subject matter is sophisticated enough to entertain adults. Im one such fan of Ted Naifeh, who's writing and art are at his best in this series about a young girl with gifted powers. Think of Courtney Crumrin as Wednesday from the Addam's Family except with magical powers. Both are curmudgeon's and yet adorable; kids who grow up too fast or who have old souls. Her adventures are typical for a girl of her age except they involve very real monsters and very deadly situations. If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Harry Potter you'll love this graphic novel series (yes, they are graphic novels or comics). I am now a fan of Mr. Naifeh and young Ms. Crumrin.

This series rules. My only reservation is the length of the books, because when I finish one, I immediately want more. The art is unique and the characters are very full. Almost homey when you get aquainted.

Due to my poor interpretation of my local library's records, I accidentally wound up with this volume instead of the first in the series, and didn't realize my mistake until I was midway through the story. Thankfully, Coven of Mystics is completely accessible as an entry point into Courtney's world, and though Naifeh doesn't offer any start-of-book recaps as introductory material, within a few pages Courtney tells you all you need to know: she's a bite-sized curmudgeon who dabbles in magic. Honestly, who doesn't love that?

The most impressive thing about this volume is that, despite the heroine's youth, there are serious stakes. Relationships are ruined, status quos are challenged, and people die...and that's all before Courtney really gets geared up for action. The tone is also intriguing, since you might expect a story featuring a young child to tout a boilerplate moral ("Don't turn your back on people because people are all you've got!"), and this book fairly sneers at the suggestion of such.

While I enjoy Courtney (and strongly suspect that had we been in school together as children, many nuns would still be in therapy trying to recover), I'm not sure I'm sold enough on the art or story to pursue the rest of the series. But if I'm looking to spend time with a gender-swapped pipsqueak Ed Asner, at least I'll know where to turn.

This is the second book in the Courney Crumrin series. I absolutely love this series. In this book Courtney has to face a darker foe than ever before and it was a fun and exciting read.

Courtney Crumrin is settling in to both her new house and new school. She is learning how to deal with the Night Things better, but when a new and more horrible Night Thing threatens their community the local Coven of Mystics blame it on a Night Thing named Skarrow. Both Courtney and her uncles suspect that Skarrow is innocent, but they need to both protect the village from the horrible new Night Thing and prove Skarrow's innocence before the Mystics find and take him into custody.

The story for this installment in the series was a lot more complicated than the last series. There were also a lot of fun things that happened. Courtney is a great character. She is tough and smart and sarcastic and funny. She grows a lot in this book too and finally starts to realize that it might be better to try and make some friends at school than always be by herself.

Her uncle tries to keep Courtney out of many of the conflicts, but Courtney is stubborn and always involves herself. In the end she usually does more good than bad so it is all good. I really enjoy the relationship she has with her uncle; they both help each other out and really seem to care about one another.

Uncle Aloysius is an awesome character. He has a good dry sense of humor, really cares about Courtney and can seriously kick butt with both his magic and his sword.

There is a lot of action in this series and I loved how each chapter had an independent story as well as building on a larger story arc. I enjoyed the new types of Night Things we meet, I enjoyed Courtney's stent as a cat, and I enjoyed when she wandered down into the realm of the Night Things.

The first book in the series I got as an ebook to review and that was in full color. This book was in black and white only and that made the illustration more lackluster than the full color version I had seen for the first book. Naifeh does an excellent job conveying facial expression and I never found the drawings or story confusing. The style of drawing is pretty cartoony for the characters' bodies, although the backgrounds are very detailed. In general the illustration did a good job of supporting the story; I just wish we could see this in full color like the first book.

Overall I really, really enjoyed this book. It has an interesting and fun story that is complex. Courtney grows a lot in this book and begins to come into her own as a witch. We get to see a lot more of Uncle Aloysius in action; he is an awesome character. I highly recommend this for fans of fantasy graphic novels; this book is appropriate for middle grade and older. If you liked this book I would also recommend checking out Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet series or Jeff Smith's Bone series.

Several other reviewers have gone into detail about the Courtney Crumrin & The Coven of Mystics, so I'll skip to other aspects of the story. This is definitely NOT for little children, at least not without some serious parental guidance, as many opening and the ending scenes are very gruesome, and are the stuff of pure nightmares.

This story introduces a very horrible man-eating, soul-enslaving giant Hobgoblin, Tommy Rawhead, whom even other Night things fear, which forces the Council of the Coven to call in their trump card, Courtney's Uncle Aloysius, to find it and do battle with it especially after it murders a prominent warlock, his wife and their children in a most particularly gruesome fashion. He must find a way to stop it before it murders anyone else in the Coven. At the same time a mystery unfolds around another Night thing, Skarrow, whom Courtney discovers is involved in the Council's political power struggles, and is being blamed, perhaps unfairly for having put a spell on a local powerful witch he once served. Is it related to Tommy's murderous spree? Courtney works to find out, and in the process does some major growing up, changing her forever from an innocent, if grumpy kid, into a girl who now sees the real world for what it is.

This is the darkest of the three Courtney Crumrin stories by far and in some ways the most rewarding because of the growing up Courtney must do in order to solve the duel mysteries. As a result, this is not for everyone, and some may not like the direction it goes with, especially since Ted Naifeh pulls no punches in telling his story.
