Be warned! There’s are massive spoilers ahead!
In searching through content here on ComiConverse, I can’t seem to find anything regarding the “Boy Who Lived”. While I know this is a very comics universe oriented site and the Potter series is marketed as children’s books with nothing to do with comics, I have yet to go to a comic-con and not see at least one grown adult sporting their Hogwarts robes. At Wizard World Philadelphia this past June, I saw several pairs of Gryffindor’s and Slytherin’s, a group of four friends representing each house and a woman wearing a toilet seat around her neck, dressed as Moaning Myrtle. I’m going to give Harry a little love on here, and give you 4 reasons to avoid seeing his adult misery in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
With its wacky plot, uncharacteristic characters, and insanely inaccurate time-line, it reads more as a poorly thought out fan-fiction than an actual part of the Harry Potter series. I’m just going to pretend the books ended at seven and ignore the fact that I ever read this disjointed train wreck.
