And now for something completely different: More Harry Dresden and Crew! 😀 What, you were expecting me to move on to another addictive series? Don’t worry. There’ll be plenty of time for that another day. Be afraid. Be very afraid. 😀 Okay, just kidding. While there are many series I love and will surely mention here and there, none has ever come close to this one. You’re safe from any future countdown posts. Probably. 😉
Before we begin with the last few Dresden images and memes I’d like to share, let me just toss out one interesting tidbit, for those who may not have realized this. Nowhere in any of the Dresden Files books is Harry ever mentioned wearing, taking off or putting on, or even so much as owning a hat. Nope. And in fact, in one instance, he adamantly states, “I don’t do hats.” Yet, because of the gorgeous cover work of Christian McGrath, I will never be able to imagine Harry going out to do his Wizard Thing without one. And I fully approve.
ALL THE REST
More villains, including one of the few images I could find of John Marcone, or Gentleman Johnny, as he’s known. (Yeah, I know it’s not a great one, but he came with the set.) Lara Raith and Lasciel are just plain evil, and Harry’s Godmother, the Leanansidhe is creepy as hell, but a bit more complicated to understand.
This one is more the way I picture Marcone, who’s a wonderfully worthy adversary for Harry. Evil in all the right ways, but with a weakness that makes him less of a cardboard villain and far more interesting.
Okay, Bob. Here you go. While I’ve mentioned Bob the Skull before, I couldn’t possibly end our Countdown Posts without another image or two. He wouldn’t stand for it. (Get it? Stand? Oh, sometimes I crack myself up!) Here’s Bob at Harry’s house.
And here he is at mine.
And yes, I dress him up for the holidays, much to his dismay.
Found a few more illustrations of Murph out there, and while they aren’t exactly how I picture her, they’re fun, so I’m sharing them, too.
I recently came across more images of Harry’s brother, Thomas Raith, as well, and am including them for your viewing pleasure. (Maybe it’s just me, but this guy is a real treat for the eyes. No wonder he’s a card-carrying member of the White Court. 😀 )
I have to admit, I’m a sucker for a pretty face, and for me, this is simply a perfect image of Thomas, just as I picture him. (That rarely happens). I also admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for Thomas Raith, and since I can’t remember half of the plots in these books I read so long ago, I’m always in agony, wondering what will become of him. Arrggh.
While living with Harry, he became the offcial cook.
Note the t-shirt. 😀
I also decided to share a couple of scenes between Thomas and Harry as they are first getting to know each other. (Long story. You’ll have to read it. 😀 )
And now for a few more images of Dresden himself because, well–Harry!
A Graphic Novel.
(Sometimes I’m sorry I kinda outgrew comic books.)
Another “Fuego!” Moment.
The only McAnally’s Bar image I could find.
Not my favorite, but we can’t forget Mac!

(Nothing too dreadful, though.)
(Yeah, I know–pretty wordy for Mac.
That just goes to show you how much trouble
Harry was about take on.)

And finally, how this series will come to an end, if I get my wish!
Team Murphy, all the way!
