Happy Birthday, Harry Potter (And J.K. Rowling)

Elsewhere on the internet

I know after a certain point, birthdays just sort of start to make you feel old, rather than like you accomplished something, and the best remedy for that is to make everybody else around you feel old. And so in that spirit I offer this ancient relic of the internet to Harry Potter, who turns thirty-three today. And I suppose to J.K. Rowling (who turns forty-eight), but I’m guessing a lot of people have gotten her something better than this, really.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
