This second outing of the young Courtney Crumrin – our plucky young heroine who is a chip off her ole great-grand-uncle’s block – sets several sub-plots in motion that appeared benignly in the first collection. With many a mystical guide – in the shape of Uncle Alyosius’s cat, as well as one of her teachers at school – Courtney starts getting in over her head, and – much to her uncle’s chagrin – into the deepest of magical danger.

Although a delightfully-told modern gothic fantasy with smart anime-inspired pen-and-inks, this is not your average, run-of-the-mill YA graphic novel. Not with its occasional sailor-talk, mind you. As this second collection closes, you’re just starting to realize how dark this series is about to get in forthcoming volumes.
