Finally: Harry Potter in Comic Book Form


Are you too lazy/busy/grownup to finish the Harry Potter books, even though everyone you know still makes references to them all the time? Do you enjoy pictures and have a short attention span? Well, have we got the solution for you. Illustrator and all around awesome artist Lucy Knisley has created quick and dirty abridged versions of the first five Harry Potter books — with the rest to come (we hope)! Not only is it delightful to see some of our favorite stories in comic form, but Knisley has also coined hilarious and relevant phrases like ‘Patronused!’ ‘snakey talky’ and ‘slug-d’ to describe the gang’s various adventures. Click through to prep for the new film and refresh your memory with these charming and irreverent comics — and if this only whets your appetite for graphic adventures, don’t forget that today is Free Comic Book Day! Go here to plug in your zip code and find the closest person to you that will hand you free comic books.
