“Flight of fancy”

I don’t often do splash pages like this; especially with a week between episodes, they don’t give a lot of story content for the space they use. But since W.W. Denslow created such lovely plates for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, I wanted to include some in my Oz story, too … and in such a way that places them in the context of the story.

On another technical note, I’m switching to present tense with my writing here. I was trying to match Baum’s use of past tense, but I just didn’t like how it meshed with spoken dialog in a comic panel. For the writers out there, compare this week’s strip to this one and this one— which sounds better to your ears?

“Tempest in a teapot”

That looks like a potent blend, indeed!

“Travel plans”

At least now we know why Minerva needed the teapot!

“What’s taking so long?!?”

You can bet that their mom found out about it soon enough…

“Fashion show”

Just because Watusi eats garbage doesn’t mean he wants to look like it!

“Say it three times fast”

It’s a good job if you can get it.

“Hold on a second!”

And, we’re off!

Settling on the visual look for a long storyline is always a little daunting, since it means I’ll need to stick to it (more or less) for a year or two until it reaches its end. Let me know what you think about this look…

“Road trip!”

… and that brings this extended newspaper strip-like segment to an end. It was fun to play around in the structural limitations of the format, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride. A big thank you to Tom Cherry for lending his expertise and talent to this run of strips.

Come back next time for the start of the next epic storyline! I think it’ll be a good one…

“Going their separate ways”

Wait, is that who it looks like?!? Really? Well, it’s about time!!!

It’s kinda hard to tell from here, but does Watusi look a little… different? I guess we’ll find out next episode…

In the mean time, I’ve got some other Watusi news that I’m pretty excited to share– get the details here.

“Now you know”

Boy, I sure hope Watusi somehow returns soon … because if not, this would be the perfect way to end this strip, wouldn’t it?

A special thanks to Mike Sullivan for rounding out my batch of guest cameos with his Infinity Five members! They can be hard to catch in action, but the best place might be in Virtual Infinity Comics Presents #1 … or in “There’s Something Happening in Crawford, Kansas”— soon to be remastered for release on Patreon. Thanks, Mike!
