Is Zen Pencils criticizing fandom?

I'm not sure how I feel about Zen Pencil's latest comic.

It seems to imply at least to some extent that enthusiastic fandom is a bad thing, or at least that "escape" is a bad thing. The fact that he still has the Harry Potter backpack at the end is a mitigating factor, I suppose, but it certainly didn't go the way I expected. Zen Pencils comics can often be interpreted multiple ways, and he's usually very pro-science and pro-individuality, so I don't want to be too quick to criticize. It just made me feel weird. Thoughts?
