Official Press Release
Oni Press is pleased to announce that the first two issues of the Ted Naifeh miniseries, COURTNEY CRUMRIN & THE COVEN OF MYSTICS, have sold out. The new series continues the adventures of Courtney, a school girl with a knack for magic and mischief who finds herself living in a spooky suburb filled with witches, talking cats, and a variety of creepy creatures. THE COVEN OF MYSTICS builds on the stories from the first COURTNEY miniseries recently collected in the COURTNEY CRUMRIN & THE NIGHT THINGS trade paperback.
“Ted and COURTNEY cast a glamour on everyone they come in contact with. People can’t help but love her with a passion usually reserved for another spell-casting student,” said Oni Press publisher Joe Nozemack. “Comic stores quickly gobbled up the first two issues’ overprint, and when national retail chain Hot Topic placed an order for almost half the initial print run of each issue, we had no choice but to go back to press to meet the tremendous demand both inside and outside the direct market.”
“We knew based on the reaction to the first miniseries that 2003 was going to be a great year for COURTNEY,” added series editor James Lucas Jones. “Ted’s enthusiasm for his craft and these characters is as contagious as a cold!”
“This is just the beginning of the things starting to happen with COURTNEY,” Nozemack concluded. “Ted and Oni have all sorts of magical new plans for this girl and her ghouls that will be announced in the next few months ”
