The Adventures of Martin Miggs, the Mad Muggle was a wizarding comic book that was published by L. C. A. Comics.[1][3] The first issue was released sometime during the 1960s.[1] At least six issues exist.[4]

The comic focused on the adventures of Martin Miggs, a "mad" Muggle who was apparently from France, given that he wore the beret and striped shirt often seen in stereotypical depictions of Frenchmen and spoke English mingled with French words in a French accent.[1][5] Costing 7 sickles and 27 knuts, the thirtieth anniversary issue was released in the 1990s and portrayed Martin being left in charge of a classroom and trying to teach the students about animals.[1]

In the 1980s, Filius Flitwick had an issue of this comic among a stack of books. Jacob's sibling and Aurélie Dumont found it while looking for books about Nicolas Flamel.[2]

During the 1991-1992 school year, issues one through six of this comic book were for sale in the Gryffindor Common Room, priced at three Sickles each.[4]

Ron Weasley was an avid reader of this comic. He kept a large stack of issues in his bedroom at The Burrow.[3]
