Guys. Guys. I have really important news.
There is a Christian comic book parodying Harry Potter. Look at it!
And it’s way meta. See, it’s about Ari and Minnie, who sort of look like Harry and Hermione, but mostly do not, who enjoy a series of books about the witchcraft called Hairy Polarity. Which if you’re American probably doesn’t sound quite so lame because “Hairy” and “Harry” aren’t homonyms for me. In my head it’s about as clever “lamestream media,” while in yours it’s probably about as clever as “Dumbocrats.” (Question: Was “Dumbocrats” coined by Rush Limbaugh or Birch Barlow? I know Barlow came up with “Smellfare,” which is like, hey why haven’t you stolen that GOP?)
Anyway, Ari and Minnie get trapped into liking sorcery by the evil Dr. Verbosi who is I suppose a Rowling parody except she’s not a Doctor or a man like Verbosi is.
Now, let’s all be silently appreciative of Ari’s vivid teen angst in the last panel: “I’m just reading a silly book — I’m not a wizard wannabe! And I love Minnie! You’re being ridiculous — and cruel!!”
