2012-03-13 Rerun commentary: Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha! You see, it's funny because making a webcomic is nerdy too!

Man, imagine if someone made a webcomic about Harry Potter fan-fic! That'd just be the ultimate nerdiestness!

In this strip you can get some idea of the working space I used to assemble comics. Almost every comic I photographed was done right there in that space on the right half of my computer desk. You can also see here the LEGO baseplate that is used for many, many backgrounds, sitting vertically behind the cardboard Harry Potter set. I propped it up that way by attaching columns of LEGO bricks to the top side to form struts. Also, at publication time of this strip, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix still hadn't been released. I was showing off my faked copy (mentioned earlier) as much as I could!

As I write this (a few days before the rerun of this comic), last weekend I went to see Harry Potter: The Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. I got to see lots of the props that were used in the films, as well as hordes of kids, many dressed up in Hogwarts uniforms. It was very cool, but alas they didn't allow photography in the exhibition. This was unlike Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination which toured the same museum in 2009, in which visitors could take as many photos as they liked. For that reason, and also for the fact that I grew up with Star Wars, I preferred it over the Potter one.

But that didn't stop me buying myself a Gryffindor tie.
