I've been really enjoying these tales of Courtney Crumrin's uncle Aloysius as a young man. I just wish there wasn't about three in between each one. while the ending is bittersweet, if not downright heartbreaking, the tale speeds by. As a Bay Area resident it is interesting to see creator Ted Naifei explain the how and why for Hillsborough doing so well as a community over the years. Also, a nice play on the ever pompous Alan Moore's title The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
Ted Naifeh is an American comic book writer and artist who gained notoriety for his illustrations in the goth romance comic Gloomcookie. Naifeh has since become most known as the creator of the Eisner-Award-nominated series Courtney Crumrin, published by Oni Press.
