I’m doing something a little out of the ordinary for an incentive sketch today. You won’t see one of the Theater Hopper cast members in any kind of costume. Instead, I took a stab at drawing a Dementor. This is my interpretation, inspired by the version in the movie, of course. I hope you like it. Click here to check it out!

As for today’s comic? I can’t tell you what inspired it. I suppose part of me really, REALLY wanted to draw a strip with a Dementor in it. Watching Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban on Friday, I was very taken with their design and wanted to re-create it.

Then, at some point in the creative process, the phrase “Frosty Chocolate Milkshakes” crept in and it was “Good night, Gracie!” I’m sorry. It just sounded funny in my head!

Maybe I’m tapping into some kind of old-school sense of humor here, because there seems to be a kind of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein thing going on here…

Maybe it’s best not to dwell on it. They’re just silly pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

As for the movie on everyone’s minds, I really don’t have anything more to contribute that hasn’t been said in a hundred reviews. The tone is darker, more grown-up. The actors are really stepping into their roles. There’s some great black humor in it and it’s definitely the best of the three Potter movies so far.

I can say that Azkaban has stuck with me longer than the other two movies have. Four days later, I’m still thinking about it. After walking out of the theater the first two times, I couldn’t remember what I saw. Azkaban has several striking moments. Go see it. Even if you don’t like Harry Potter, it stands on its own two legs. It’s an enjoyable film.

Wanted to give a quick shout out to two recent advertisers. Be sure to investigate both Nihilism and Stickman Ltd. They’re worth a look.

That’s about it for now. Take care!
