“The council assembles”

Boy, things have sure changed since I last wrote one of these blurbs! Hope you are all staying safe & adapting to the new new as best you can. Even though my day-to-day life as a cartoonist in the studio should be pretty much the same as before, the mood of the times is weighing on me (like with most of us), leaving me feeling scatterbrained & overwhelmed. Having my spring shows & upcoming release schedules thrown out the window hasn’t helped matters. Neither has the nagging question of how much this fanciful comic adventure really even matters in times like this. I can only hope it brightens your day in some way…

(As with the other double-page spreads in this story, this episode can be viewed at a larger size if you’re interested– just click on the image. Don’t worry, though– you’ll get a better look at this group in the episodes to come!)

“On second thought…”

At least they’re back on the same page again … but for how long?

“Friction in the Emerald City”

Judging by the way they fight, we can tell for sure they’re related …

“I hate it when a plan falls apart!”

I hope those two have a backup plan! Well, actually, I hope they don’t

“The Tin Twins”

Captain Fyter’s actions here may seem gruesome, but it’s my little tip of the hat to Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. While he toned down the violence in later books, that first novel featured a surprising number of decapitations!

“Are you leaving us?”

(I think Jack was just hinting that he’d like his hat & jacket returned before Minerva leaves!)

“Welcomes all around”

I guess introductions are still the order of the day!

“Believe your eyes!”

I’m not crying. You’re crying…

“Let’s hope this trick works…”

A tip of the hat to Watusi jam comic contributor Keith O’Brien, who got me thinking about this kind of reunion for our foursome with a comment he made quite some time ago. Thanks, Keith!

“Rushing to conclusions?”

I guess having really good hearing could be a problem ….
