''The Good Neighbors'' is a ComicBook trilogy by Creator/HollyBlack and Ted Naifeh. The trilogy follows the story of Rue Silver, a somewhat typical YoungAdult {{Fantasy}} heroine. She discovers that she is actually a human/faerie hybrid destined to be heir to the faerie throne. Of course, the faerie in general don't like the humans and there's a movement at foot that endangers Rue's friends and neighbors.

!!Tropes:
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Nia has no qualms about parading around the front yard naked.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Rue Silver.
* BareYourMidriff: Most of the female characters at some point, but most notably Lucy.
* DamagedSoul: People are stabbed in the heart with ritual daggers to turn them into trees. This is reversible, but the one example shown came back as a wood-hearted sociopath.
* {{Expy}}: Aubrey and Tam are strikingly similar to the folkloric characters, Auberon and Puck, respectively. Tam is also probably named after [[Literature/TamLin Tam Lin]].
* TheFairFolk
* FairySexy: Birch.
* GoodBadGirl: Rue. She's a generally well-behaved girl, but she's not above initiating a quickie with her boyfriend when her dad's not home.
* HalfHumanHybrid
* {{Hipster}}: Rue and company. Pretty standard for Holly Black's characters.
* HumanMomNonHumanDad: Inverted -- Rue has a human dad and a non-human mom.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Faeries are not shy about taking their clothes off. This caused some awkward moments in Rue's childhood.
* JewishAndNerdy: Thaddeus.
* OfCorsetsSexy: Rue knows how to rock it.
* SeaShellBra: The water fairies wear an interesting variation that are essentially seashell pasties.
* ShoutOut: In the first volume, a copy of ''Literature/TheSpiderwickChronicles'' is shown.
* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler: Thaddeus and Rue both cheat on their partners.]]
