As you’ll see if you download the poster at her site, Knisley does an amazing job of condensing the complete series into a humorous, witty, good-natured parody, rife with inside Potter jokes. TOCK caught up with Lucy to get the details. The hardest part, she recounts, was condensing the whole series into the eight comics. (As with the films, Knisley split J.K.
