Mark makes an appearance again! Oops. We thought about putting Shelbie in this comic, but we have something much more special for her planned next week. Oh yes. Yes indeed…

Pottermore. I don’t even know how to classify it. The closest thing it comes to is a Facebook “game,” but Pottermore has something those games will never have: Substance. At least there’s material there. With Farmville, there is nothing there. Nothing to work toward, nothing to learn, nothing to extract enjoyment from. Farmville is nothing. At least Pottermore provides entertainment and has good art!

If I had to classify it under a genre, I’d say it gets its own. Somewhere in between one step above Facebook games, and somewhere below Mega Man 2.

That is to say, Mega Man 2 is fun, but there are of other Mega Mans I’d rather be playing. So the analogy didn’t hold up all that well…

Also, happy birthday to my beautiful fiance, Shelbie!
