“Have I got a story to tell!”

That shock that left Watusi & Minerva stunned into inactivity for the last few weeks seems to have passed– barring any other emergencies, we should be on a fast track to the end of “Watusi in OZ”!

“Close calls”

If you want to continue this trip down memory lane, you can keep reading here. You know, of all the Watusi stories I’ve done, I think “The ghost dog of Wonder Valley” is the best drawn one…

“Problem. Solved.”

Watusi, master of understatement…

I want to share a BIG “thank you” to Wendy and Tom and Mike for giving me insight into this scene from a reader’s point of view. Spending as much time as I do inside this story, it’s hard for me to see it from another perspective, so your help was much appreciated! Thanks!

On a happier note, I want to take a moment to express my thanks to all my readers– I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you who take the time to check in on Watusi’s adventures every week.

Hurry, Watusi– catch those two before they can execute their next plan!!

“Thanks for stopping by!”

Not quite the reaction the Magistrate was looking for, I guess…

“The warm welcome he’s been waiting for”

If Watusi ever makes it back to Wonder Valley, I bet he’ll miss the celebrity treatment a dog gets in Oz…

This week’s episode is my little tip of the hat to one of my favorite parts about epic movies (such as Ben Hur, GWTW, Dr. Zhivago): seeing what was a glamorous setting in the early acts revealed to be a deserted ruin in the final reel …

(To save you having to look it up, this is the strip where Watusi first arrived in the Emerald City. Of course, feel free to scroll back through the archive…)
