The Commuter: Your Source for News & Events at Linn-Benton Community College.

This comic was created by Kaity Fitzgerald using pencil, sharpies, and crayons. Her inspiration was her love for “Harry Potter” and her fear of spiders. She connected her fear of spiders and the fact that Ron Weasley from “Harry Potter” also has a fear of spiders, and ran with that idea.
