Welcome to the first strip of Thornsaddle! We are glad to have you in our world. We will bring you a new comic every Thursday at 7AM EST. Thornsaddle Thursdays, as we like to call them.

I thought of the name "Thornsaddle" a while ago. Its a very Texas sounding name to me, so naturally that's where the school is. The reason I like the name so much is that it shares a unique characteristic with Hogwarts in that I wouldn't want to sit on either. Think about it, "Hogwarts"? What were they thinking? Sounds disgusting. Like a Krusty Burger.

JKRowling chose the name "Hogwarts" after seeing the hogwort plant (Croton capitatus)while on holiday in New York. It's a lovely and rare plant, much like the school itself. As Sherlock would be sure to say in a situation like this, DO YOUR RESEARCH!
