POLLY & THE PIRATES #1 (of 6)

Ted Naifeh, creator of the Courtney Crumrin series and collaborator on the recently completed Death Jr. mini, has created a cute little story that does for Gilbert & Sullivan what Courtney Crumrin did for Harry Potter. Namely, turn it on its ear. Like G&S, Polly & the Pirates is naughty and contemporary if you want it to be, but timeless and good-natured on the whole.

Clever, accessible, light-hearted, and full of the little artistic quirks that are Naifeh's hallmarks (most of which rate as charming, except for the claw-like hands), this is a good all-ages read.
