Appropriately enough, with today being 11/11, Bureau of Magic dropped a new Lost in Oz short:
Yes, at last word is out that there will be more of the show, with Lost in Oz: The Movie. I am excited to see this!
Yeah, I sincerely doubt that that guy selling gourds in today's edition of CowTown is actually an Oz character, despite his appearance. So I'm not calling it an Oz comic, even though I'm going to secretly pretend it is. I suspect Jack will show up in a few more unexpected places between now and Monday.
Strictly speaking, today's edition of Eek! probably isn't actually about an Oz character. But at this time of year, I'll take them when I can find them! (I will point out that there is no actual pumpkins in pumpkin spice, so I don't know what he's all worried about.)
Well I haven't been able to do one of these for a while! But now that Jeopardy! has its own YouTube channel, when things like this guest giving video clues happens, I can easily post them.
And by latest I mean some time in the past year or so. Hey, as I said last time, I may be keeping up with the reading, but not doing so well with telling you about it!
At last, something that's not a comic! Yeah, I've been busy, and I have a huge backlog of just stuff I need to take care of in the coming weeks and months. How big is the backlog? I have a whole bunch of books and other items I read in my last round of Oz reading, last winter, that I haven't blogged about yet. And now I've started the latest round. I'll go back and hit some of those in the coming weeks, but right now I want to start with what I started off this round with:
I promised I'd give you the complete saga once the storyline ended in Sherman's Lagoon, and now I am making good on that. This particular story was inspired by a real life discovery, a natural "yellow brick road" discovered on an underwater mountain near Hawai'i. (Snopes has a good summary of it all, including video.) So, here we go!
A couple more that have appeared kind of recently:
With my job starting up for the year this week and all kinds of other things going on, I've been falling behind on all kinds of other things lately. But this morning, I want to share with you the comics page of this past Friday, August 12. Because there were not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR Oz comics that day! Not all of them were new, but it's still a pretty impressive feat! Here we go, in the order I read them:
With the surprising vote in Kansas last week to keep the right to an abortion in the state constitution, editorial cartoonists had a field day. And since it was in Kansas, you can guess what the topic of many of the cartoons was!
I've been very busy, but now I have a chance to breathe and catch up on stuff. Here are a few recent Oz comics:
Marshall Ramsey has an Ozzy take on what Donald Trump was doing on January 6, 2021.
In case you haven't heard, Dr. Mehmet Oz is runnnig for the Senate in Pennsylvania. Well, here's an ad his opponent put out:
