    1. I'm assuming I'm missing a lot of backstory, but having only read this one, I found the warlock Aloysius rather repellent. I have not idea why Alice liked him (other than she was young and silly, but she never got better), and I have the uneasy feeling I was supposed to find the ending at least bittersweet, but instead it was more proof of what a nasty character he was and she was well away from him. I'm doubtful whether that was the reaction the author hoped. I was also very distracted by the o [...]

    2. I always find the Courtney Crumrin books to be such a satisfying read. The art-style is interesting and the characters are flawed and real. Wonderful. Reading about Aloysius's life (how do I pronounce his name?!) has, of course, made me want to re-read the whole series all over again. As one volume usually does. I love the humour and the magic and Just everything.It was interesting to get to see the beginning of everything. I would totally read a whole other series all about Aloysius!Also, the p [...]

    3. Courtney Crumrtin Vol 7 Tales of a Warlock I’m back! And here is a short review for you. 2.5 Stars, don’t bother The book is physically beautiful as the first 6 volumes. Unfortunately thats about all I can say thats good about it. This volume had two stories in it. The first one is about Courtney's uncle when he was younger. While interesting, I really missed Courtney being in it and it wasn't as great of a storyline. The second story wasn’t any better and made me miss Courtney’s chara [...]

    4. It's funny, I actually enjoyed this one more than the finale proper of the series. I was sad there was no Courtney but I felt like the pacing was much better in this volume.Naifeh gave the story a little more time to breathe than he did in volume 6, where it kind of started off with a bang and didn't really slow down much. Parts of it felt a little action pulpy kind of like Atomic Robo, which was a bonus to me.It also maintained the melancholy tone of the entire series, especially the ending.I'm [...]

    5. I was really shocked when I found out a 7th volume was out as I thought 6 was the final volume and it was, sort of. Tales of a Warlock can be looked at as more of a prequel than a continuation. This volume takes us back to the days when Uncle Aloysius is a young man and even then working against the rogues practicing dark witchcraft. Just as much of a treat as fans of Courtney could expect with a great story and fantastic art. A unique plot that takes fans back to Aloysius' secret past but this [...]

    6. It is safe to say that this series can do no wrong in my eyes. I love everything about it, the world, the characters, the art and the plotlines. This volume is no different.In this volume we get a background story for Aloysius Crumrin. As a young man he engages with a group of sorcerer hunters in an attempt to find out what they know about his group and along the way he is able to actually help them do away with some of the rogue sorcerers that are out there.I enjoyed this volume very much, I li [...]

    7. Rather than Courtney, this volume focuses on the tales of young Aloysius Crumrin, and delightfully so. Naifeh's art is delightfully quirky, and his story -- of sorcerers good, and bad, and the humans (and magicians) who hunt the latter, is all lovely, intriguing, gripping, and tragic.Good stuff. Highly recommended.

    8. No Courtney in this one; all backstory, all the time. Possibly the prettiest volume of the series so far, and far and away the one with the most of depth of story in terms of characterization. Still good, this one.

    9. Interesting, but didn't give the depth or new development I was hoping for, especially since it appears as a volume of Courtney. Enjoyed it, but nowhere near as great as the main volumes.

    10. Loved it so much. Such a great series. And I was surprised how much I loved this volume focusing on Courtney's uncle when he was young. Great stuff.

    11. A great back story. Falls in line with the serious, maybe not as strong as the others but still good to get some history on Courtney's Uncle A.
