And now the special announcement: I've been toying with the idea of starting a Facebook group devoted to Oz comics. Well, with Laura's encouragement and assistance, we've taken the plunge and started it! You can visit it right here. I hope it will be a forum for both new and vintage Wizard of Oz-themed comic strips, panels, pages, books, and editorial cartoons. But don't worry, I'll still pos the new ones here as well.
