It was a key part of the story that Harry Potter be sorted into Gryffindor when he arrived at Hogwarts, but have you ever imagined what would have happened if he’d been sent to another house? Would he have gone bad in Slytherin and helped the Death Eaters take over with Voldemort? And what about Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff?

Now you get to choose which house becomes Harry’s home in this series of comics. Head on over to Dorkly where you can see how differently things would have gone if Harry hadn’t been a Gryffindor.


The ability to time travel could solve so many problems. In their latest installment of “The Line it is Drawn,” Comic Book Resources challenged artists to “Take a current comic book character and send them back in time to prevent a notable event from the past of DC, Marvel, Image or whatever.” Artist Axel Medellin Machain imagined Batman jumping into the world of Watchmen and stopping Ozymandias. Besides saving the day, he also gets in some solid lecturing.

Nick Fury may have known what he was getting into with S.H.I.E.L.D., but he probably had no idea just how complicated his life would become when he had to start wrangling The Avengers. This comic by Jenn Menze takes a fun look at how Fury gets them all out of bed and ready for the day, and then settles them all back down for a good night’s sleep.

There’s nothing quite so sweet as that moment when you discover something new and completely fall in love with a fandom. It could be a comic, a movie, or a book, but it’s a wonderful moment that’s something to treasure. The only problem is that, no matter the fandom, some guy out there is going to try and ruin it for you within minutes. Whatever you do, don’t be that guy.

There are times that Game of Thrones has you on the edge of your seat in anticipation, but then there are the times it has you struggling to stay awake. Daenerys has been wandering from desert city to desert city to desert city, and if the audience had any say in the matter, that might change pretty quick. Also, Ser Pounce would get the recognition he deserves.

This comic from Dorkly perfectly explains The Mathematical Law of Superhero Film Villains. The more villains in a movie, the tougher they should be to beat—but that’s just not the case. More villains in one film means they each have the brain power of your average tree slug.

We live in a time where a furry gun-toting raccoon and a talking tree will appear in a film before Wonder Woman. It’s ridiculous that DC Comics and Warner Bros. haven’t given Diana the spotlight yet. They throw around excuses, and this comic from Dorkly showcases just how silly and frustrating the situation is.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones brought an event that many fans of the series have been waiting to see: the death of a horrible, awful, no good character. Goodbye, Joffrey Baratheon and good riddance. Dorkly captured the sentiments of various groups’ reactions to “The Lion and The Rose” perfectly because it was all more or less unanimous.

Happy as I was to see Joffrey bite it, I do have to compliment Jack Gleeson for his portrayal of the despicable character. He played the heck out of the worst king Westeros has ever seen, and it can’t have been an easy burden to bear. On top of that Gleeson seems to be a super nice guy that loves cuddling puppies.

star wars fans comic 1_header

If you spend any amount of time around Star Wars fans, you’ll quickly discover they fall into different categories. There are people who are into nothing but the original trilogy, people who love and defend every minute of the prequels, and people who are all about the Expanded Universe characters. Those are just a few examples of the types of Star Wars fan you’ll find, and Dorkly rounded up five more in their “8 Types of Star Wars Fans” comic. I’ve met at least one person from each bucket on their list.

See the full comic after the break and let us know what type of fan you are in the comments.

It doesn’t happen often, but there are times when I still get questioned by guys when I wear a nerd t-shirt. It gets old. Like, want-to-punch-the-person-in-the-face old. John Kovalic tackles a similar situation in a recent edition of his Dork Tower comic. His character Gilly handles a dudebro asking about her Batgirl shirt and her geek authenticity with wit and hilarity. I can’t wait to sick burn someone next time they ask if I really like Star Wars.
