These Hilarious Harry Potter Comics Show How Irresponsible Dumbledore Was

Albus Wulfric Percival Brian Dumbledore was actually the master of the "Dumbleburn."

Most Harry Potter fans know Dumbledore as the kind and intelligent headmaster of Hogwarts.

But one artist has been showing a different side of Dumbledore — one that might explain some of his choices.

This version of Dumbledore has lessons of wisdom that are a little less wise, and he doesn't always make the best decisions.

Like the fact that he couldn't just ring a doorbell.

Or that he was really pretty cavalier about Harry's safety in general.

Plus, as terrible as the Dursleys were, he didn't really take their feelings into account.

One of the comics even explains Dumbledore's most puzzling decision: hiring Gilderoy Lockhart.

And as much as we all love Hagrid, he was totally not qualified to teach either.

Dumbledore also seemed to hand out points to Gryffindor whenever he felt like it.

"Why do the kids need permission from their parents to visit a candy shop but not for playing murder ball?" VALID POINT.

Ron even said himself that Dumbledore mostly ignored him.

And we know why Dumbledore kept Snape as a teacher, but couldn't he have had a talk with him about bullying the students?

Thank goodness this version of Dumbledore has plenty of sass for Snape to make up for it.

Honestly, this artist's version of Dumbledore might be even better than the real one.
