Thornsaddle is a webcomic hosted on ComicFury about the American School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It takes place within the same universe as Harry Potter. It was created by Michael Belsole (the writer) and Doug MacDonald (the artist). Josh Rubino draws the strip on occasion. The comic is mostly gag-per-day, although there have been some short storylines.

Thornsaddle, the school, is located somewhere in the deserts of Texas. The webcomic mostly focuses on Jack, a first-year muggle-born. His best friend is another student named Tom.
