“Thank you for your service”

Next: this is the tin man you’re looking for…

“The castle of tin”

Ah, safe haven at last!

“The Captain takes command!”

Don’t believe me? Then read The Tin Woodman of Oz for yourself! Not only does that novel introduce Captain Fyter, but it features a surreal scene where the Tin Woodman gets into a conversation w/ his former meat head. Then a few pages later it gets even weirder with the story of Chopfyt….

“Nick? Chop? Could it be…?”

I figured it was about time to introduce another one of Baum’s cast of characters. Looks like he arrived just in time, too!

“Backed into a corner”

Next: help (hopefully, help!) from above…

Y’know, maybe I have been at this project too long, as this is pretty much the same cliffhanger I left my heroes in one point already … at least this time it doesn’t look like Watusi will be the one to rescue them!

“Call to arms”

Hey, Watusi got to put the CHOMP on somebody after all!

“Marching orders”

Next: Looks like it’s time for some action!!

“Things aren’t as bad as they seem”

While this episode’s color change doesn’t bring us to the blue Munchkin lands of the Baum books, it does represent of change of scene where the cooler metallic colors will make sense soon.

(Plus, I was kind of tired of the yellows. Baum sure plopped a lot of his marquee characters into the yellow Winkie Country!)

“No more Mr. Nice Guy”

I guess I’d better figure out what happened, too!!

“Good cop, bad cop”

I don’t usually “cast” actors for my characters … but the third panel makes me wish it was possible that Terry Thomas could play Kitsch!
