“Watusi withdrawal”

7X12 BLANKS.p65

With the recent completion of my Watusi in Oz adventure– along with giving myself a sabbatical from the weekly deadline merry-go-round– I’ve been able to take a deeper dive into projects I’ve had sitting on the back burner far too long (including Watusi the Talking Dog #40). Still, I’ve been feeling a bit of Watusi withdrawal (maybe you have, too?), so I thought I’d make a new monthly comic, something loose & playful, just for my newsletter subscribers instead of posted to the open web. You can read the rest of this strip in my May newsletter (and subscribe, if so inclined) …

“Brave new world”

strip622Oh, probably a thing or two…

While this is certainly a more topical ending than I’ll use in any eventual “Watusi in Oz” book collection, it’s one that feels kind of right for the world we have as I finish this storyline up at long, long last. A big thank you goes out to those of you who stuck around for this epic comic adventure that lived up to its “epic” description! Feel free to share your thoughts below, or email me if you don’t want it to be for public consumption…

So, you may ask, what’s next for Watusi & company? What’s next for me? Well, as I wrote back in January, I’m stepping off of this weekly deadline merry-go-round to work more deeply on projects other than this online comic. Of course, since I’m likely to go into Watusi withdrawal, rest assured there will be more canine capers coming in the future! You can find out about those– and whatever else is coming next– in my monthly newsletter; if you haven’t already done so, you can subscribe here

As always, thanks for reading!

“Home again!”

strip621Different strokes for different folks, I guess…

“Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”

“Victory lap”

strip619Looks like Watusi may have a hard time readjusting to life in Wonder Valley, where dogs are a less rare breed!

“Last night in Oz”

Yes, this banquet is very different in tone from the last one!

“Look to the future”

Kinda sounds like I’m setting up a spinoff comic, doesn’t it?

As I enter the home stretch in this storyline, it’s time for me to put all the toys back in the toybox & restore Baum’s status quo…

“If you think it will help”

I guess we’ll find out next episode just how scrambled Jack’s perception of things is…

“Pleased to meet you”

Sounds like Jack might be a few seeds short of a pumpkin!
