Today's Oz Political Cartoon

This cartoon from John Darkow just about says it all! (She's right!)

Today's Oz Comic

Yet again, it's Pop Culture Shock Therapy. Maybe like Gary Larson, cows and The Far Side, Doug Bratton should just make his comic an all-Oz one!

Today's Oz Comics

Yes, that's right, it's another two-fer!

  • First, in Pop Culture Shock Therapy, it looks like the Lollipop Guild has a little (pardon the pun) competition! (WARNING: Slightly naughty language in this one.)
  • And in Strange Brew, it clearly pays to talk to the right people at the right time.

Today's Oz Comic

There was no caption on today's Strange Brew, but it could have been something like, "Tonight, on CSI: OZ"...

Today's Random Oz Encounters

  • In the comics, today's Trivquiz celebrates Judy Garland's birthday with a familiar looking image. It did get one of the questions half-wrong, however, as I pointed out in the comments!
  • My Jeopardy! page-a-day desk calendar had this clue for $1000 in the category Songs in Musicals:
    "FOR GOOD" AND
    "THE WIZARD AND I"
    The correct response is, of course, "What is Wicked?" And yes, I have quite a few Oz clues piled up from the TV show that I need to blog. The good news is that now I'm on my summer break, I should be able to put some of them up soon.

Sorry…

I apologize for the excessive comic strip postings today. But I found a couple of drafts that somehow never got posed, so I figured I'd play catch-up.

Today's Oz Political Cartoon

Based on today's political cartoon by Steve Benson, maybe there is something about how Oz is a powerful matriarchy!

Today's Oz Comic

Yet another comic discovered by a friend of mine. This time, however, it was Rei in Canada. So here is today's edifying installment of Wondermark. I think you'll get the gist pretty easily towards the end.

Today's Oz Comic

Just take a look at today's PopCulture Shock Therapy and appreciate the mashup of two of the biggest fantasy films of the 1930s. (But based on that letter, how did he even manage to apply in the first place?)

Today's Oz Comic

What, another one? This is starting to look like a daily thing! All right, I'll get to it. In today's Mother Goose and Grimm, it looks like Dorothy's house may have been a little off target. (Considering how many Munchkin actors later went on to also play characters in McDonaldland, this could may be closer to the mark than you'd think!)

Today's Oz Political Comic

Marshall Ramsey has some pertinent observations about one of our Presidential candidates. I've said it before, I'll say it again: We're going to see a lot of these before the election is over!

Today's Oz Comics Update

Hey, remember a little while ago I spotlighted an installment of Frank & Steinway? Well, it turns out to have continued! It's all part of a long, ongoing storyline, but the actual Oz content was in three consecutive strips. So, here's the first Oz one again, followed by the follow-up (no, I don't know why it was two weeks later), and the Ozzy conclusion. There, that ought to get us up to date!

Today's Oz Comic

There have been an awful lot of them lately! Today it's a little slice-of-life from Pop Culture Shock Therapy—again!

We have not one, but two for you today!

The Latest Oz Cartoon

A few days ago, Savage Chickens asked some really good questions about how things work with one Oz character. (I kind of got the impression, however, that she had put her castle in the middle of a desert.)

Today's Oz Comic

The great Mike Peters in Mother Goose and Grimm has a mashup of two of the greatest movies of the 1930s today. (To be honest, I'm surprised nobody has thought of this one before!)

Today's Oz Comic

I found this one on my own! Pop Culture Shock Therapy today visits that old trope of careers Oz characters shouldn't have.

Today's Oz Comic

Another one hunted down by Michael-sensei: Mustard and Boloney (no, I'd never heard of it, either). Cute idea, with an especially cute Toto! (My sister-in-law texted the same message to me once when she was on a cross-country road trip—but only once, when she crossed from Kansas into Missouri.)

Today's Oz Political Cartoon

Yet again, Michael-sensei has found a cartoon for us. This one comes from Tim Campbell of Current Publishing. I think, at this stage, the lady on the broom makes a good case.

Today's Coincidentally Ozzy Comic

I very much doubt Dana Summers had Oz in mind while creating today's Bound and Gagged strip. But wow, if the gag and design of the character aren't both reminiscent of Carter Green from The Hungry Tiger of Oz! Here, take a look.
