Tommy Taylor is the young, Harry Potter-ish hero of an extremely popular series of children's books.

Tom Taylor is the now adult inspiration for the character, and the son of the missing author. He makes a living on the convention circuit. He's polite to his fans, but he's uncomfortable living in the shadow of his father's creation--the young "him" who never existed.

But Tom is more fictional than he realizes.

Tom's life quickly becomes much more complicated.

This looks like a promising series, especially if you're a book nerd (like I am). The first issue is only $1 for 32 pages, so it's worth the look!

I've been interested in this series since I've heard of it, but having the Books of Magic artist drawing it is seriously going to wig me out. I know it's supposed to be a Harry Potter analog but I'm definitely seeing Tim Hunter...

As Tim predates Harry, that's as it should be, no?

That's a nice bit of Lampshade Hanging (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LampshadeHanging) right there with the Tim Hunter and Worse Witch references thrown in.

Yay, the Worst Witch!
I used to absolutely adore those books.

A year or two ago, I went to see a production of "Women of Troy", and was delighted to find that the Queen was played by the marvellous Kate DuchĂȘne, late of the "Miss Hardbroom" role.

I always shunned that wanky fanboy idea that she would make a great couple with Snape. Snape is the pale, ripoff imitation of her. She would OWN his ARSE.

I really don't remember. May have to go do some, um, research though I know my copies of the books went up into the loft a long time since.

Though I'm still supporting Snape. *waves flag*
