Earlier today I posted about the promo card left developed to promote the Austin based Capital Comic Con. Here’s another look at the card.
I reached out to the contact on their web site, Aaron Luevano who told me by email that he was aware of the card and approved it telling me”I asked before it was designed, many approved.”
A reader also posted about the promo card on the Facebook page for the convention and she sent me the response she got:
"I have to wonder if you’ve even been to a comic con."
So that’s it. They did it. They admit it. They think it’s funny. And when a woman calls them out on it they snidely dismiss it.
Once again that’s the Capital Comic Con of Austin, Texas.
Well, that’s one comic con I will never attend.

i have a lot of secret hermione headcanons like. she was insufferable at muggle school as well and generally not well liked. she was the girl whose parents were both dentists and she read too many books and tried to talk to people in her class about them but they generally thought she was trying to show off. so when she gets into hogwarts she throws herself into the new culture and reads as many books as her parents will pay for, including her text books and several history books and when her parents refuse to buy the unabridged history of magic and also some legends, she seriously considers hiding out in flourish and blotts so she can just read it in the bookstore. but she wears her robes around the house and sends about forty letters to hogwarts asking questions about the school year and the course load and how the grading scale works and if they’re very sure they’ve told her everything she’s going to need. and her parents are worried about her but they had been already? because she has such a hard time making friends. and they hope she’ll be able to make friends at hogwarts.
the first letter she sends them is full of descriptions of the castle and the sorting and background information on gryffindor and she mentions that she met neville and he’s very sweet, and the classes are so interesting, and she loves them very much! and the next few are also like that and kind of strained. and they suspect (correctly) that she again does not have friends.
a couple weeks into november, she sends them a letter full of complaints about ron’s study habits and how he’s teaching her wizard chess and how both he and harry are very brave but also not very good students. and she tells them about hagrid, who is eight and a half feet tall and the nicest person she has ever met.
they stop worrying as much until they get a letter at the end of term saying that hermione has broken about 20 school rules and also congratulations your daughter scored over 100% on almost every exam.
