Waiting for Courtney Crumrin Vol. 5: The Witch Next Door

Courtney Crumrin Vol 5

Holly Hart is new to Hillsborough and witchcraft. When her family moves in next to Courtney, the two girls quickly become friends. But as Courtney watches Holly making the same mistakes she once made, she begins to have second thoughts about teaching the girl magic. And when Holly sees the aftermath of the other children’s “adventures” with Courtney, her suspicions cause her to make a dangerous decision.

Aaaah, it’s finally coming! The second-to-last volume of the Courtney Crumrin graphic novel series will be published on April 30th, and I already pre-ordered it.

The last collected edition, Courtney Crumrin’s Monstrous Holiday, came out in 2009 – that’s 5 years ago, now! I’ve been waiting all this time to find out what happens next. Courtney’s newest adventures started their monthly run on 2012, and the whole series reached its end last year. Since I don’t get those monthly comic issues here in Finland, I had to wait for the collected edition to come out. This fifth volume will collect half of that monthly run, so after this one, I will still have to wait for the sixth volume to read the conclusion. Deep breaths, Maija, deep breaths.

  1. I’ve never heard of these! But I think we have overlapping tastes when it comes to comics and graphic novels, so I”ll check them out. Thanks! :)

    • Yes, do check them out! The first volume is a series of interconnected short stories, and it’s not quite as good as the next ones which feature longer, full-volume spanning storylines.

      They’ve recently released these beautiful hardcover full colour edition of the series, so pick them up from your library if they have them!
