Today's Oz Comics

Yes, it's another doubleheader today, from two of the Ozziest comics out there.

  • First, over at Thatababy, the lockdown has emboldened many animals to come out of the woods—including one you may not see as often as others.
  • And in Pop Culture Shock Therapy, two fairy tales cross over to deal with a mutual problem. (I'm not sure our Oz heroine would act in that capacity, though!)

In today's edition of Misc Soup, we get some insight into what might happen in your life, and how others may react to you, if you happen to be someone who can't use water.

Today's Oz Comic

And the hits just keep coming! Today it's The Argyle Sweater, which imagines an alternative career path for one of the characters in The Wizard of Oz. (Considering her aversion to one of the main ingredients in beer, perhaps baking would have been a better choice.)

Today's Oz Comic

It's very obvious from today's Savage Chickens that Oz isn't located anywhere near Florida or any other humid regions.

Today's Oz Comic

Before he was the Tin Man, he was apparently the Tin Teen—or so one would believe looking at today's edition of Break of Day.

Today's Oz Comic

When I lived in the Seattle area, we used to say that there were only two seasons: The rainy season, and construction season. Well, according to today's edition of Break of Day, the rainy season is probably over.

Today's Oz Comic

The always fabulous Thatababy pays tribute to a certain breed of insects in movies today, but somehow an Oz characters slips in as well.

Yesterday's Oz Comic

I didn't discover yesterday's edition of Yaffle until late last night, and I wasn't up to writing a blog post. But here it is! Yeah, I doubt much would have changed in the story if this had happened. On the other hand, it makes more sense than how it actually happened.

Today's Oz Political Cartoon

Our current president is often portrayed as the Wicked Witch of the West. But what about Vice President Pence? After his trip to the Mayo Clinic, Adam Ziglis of the Buffalo News seems to have an answer to that.

Today's Oz Comic

Today in One Big Happy, characters confuse a modern day banking convenience with a character from The Wizard of Oz. (This is not the first time this has happened in this strip, I will add.)

Today's Oz Comic

The effects of stay-at-home orders have hit Oz in today's edition of Strange Brew.

Today's Oz Comic

Stephanie Piro is my favorite of the artists who collectively write and draw Six Chix. So naturally I am tickled that today she is visiting Oz, with a neat little twist ending to The Movie that might have been better than what we got. (Personally, however, I would have picked some place even less densely populated, like Tahiti or Samoa.) And, interestingly, I also discovered that it can also be laid out as a strip.

Today's Oz Political Cartoon

Okay, actually this came out yesterday, but of course it's still relevant. Clay Jones has something to say about all the shelter-in-place rollback demonstrations.

Yesterday's Oz Comic

Whoops, I missed yesterday's edition of Spectickles, where the Scarecrow figures out what he really needs, in today's crazy times, from the Wizard.

Today's Classic Oz Comic

It's been terrific revisiting The Far Side on its new dedicated website, thefarside.com. And this means the Oz-themed ones pop up, such as this classic clash-of-something-or-others.

Today's Oz Political Cartoon

Drew Sheneman gives us an intriguing but cringe-inducing mash-up between The Wizard of Oz and our current president. Sad!

Today's Oz Comic

Today in the always charming Thatababy, it appears the corona virus has reached Oz. But everyone is doing the right thing! But it doesn't work out so well for one citizen of Oz. (On a side note, I'd love to see Paul Trap illustrate an Oz graphic novel!)

Yesterday's Oz Political Cartoon

Okay, I'll be honest, I'm not sure I get the connection. But yesterday, Sean Delonas had some Oz content in his cartoon. Can I just say that Delonas is an incredible artist? That's a pretty good version of Oz there. The Cowardly Lion even looks like a lion!

Today's Oz Comic

Today in Grand Avenue, the old trope about modern-day witches riding vacuum cleaners gets updated even further, with an Ozzy twist!

The Short Stories Are On Hold

Despite having fewer work hours right now, my life is still crazy busy, so there won't be a short story this week. But it turns out that the 2012 issue of Oziana is all one story, so I'm going to approach this a little differently, and I hope to have an update next weekend or so. I just thought I'd let everyone know that I haven't forgotten. (Heck, considering how long I've been doing this, with pretty much a story a week, I think I would be due for a break anyway!)
