While you're waiting for the last instalment of Harry Potter to finally hit the screens, you can enjoy all the movies in in eight gigantic comic versions created by Lucy Knisley.

But hurry! Lucy is providing the large-format printable versions for a limited time only.

As she explains:

I'm making no money from this project (in fact, I'm losing quite a bit, in bandwidth charges, labor, and now useless printings). They are parodies of a franchise that is, unfortunately, owned by someone other than myself, and those someones are VIGILANT about the faintest whiff of copyright infringement. I respect their bulldoggery over creative properties, as I am an artist and know what it's like to have to defend your work from people who consider it public domain, simply because they have access to it. So I'm not going to be selling poster versions in my online store.

But I will say: I worked hard on these. I made them with affection and humor, in celebration of a story I love and a format that challenged me to translate a complicated plot into a parodied comics language. I hope you love them too, and that they make you laugh, and that you will make a donation to show your appreciation for these images and the work I do.
