Sad news for Courtney Crumrin fans. Creator Ted Naifeh has confirmed that the last issue was indeed the last issue. Not really a surprise. It felt like a last issue.

He gave his reasons in an interview at Comics Alliance. Essentially, he wanted her story to have a conclusion. He felt that to continue it as an ongoing would rob her life of any sense of meaningfulness. Interestingly, just this past week I read Umberto Eco’s 1972 essay ‘The Myth of Superman,’ which makes much the same point. Superman could be a legendary figure, a demi-god, but the necessities of life as a trademarked property means that whatever he accomplishes must continually set aside. He does great things and accomplishes nothing.

So let’s give Courtney’s story an end. It’s not as though readers can no longer enjoy her story. In fact, next month sees the publication of the third hardcover special edition, Courtney Crumrin and the Twilight Kingdom.
