“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…

“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!

“New friends”

Happy new year, and welcome back to Oz! As I mentioned last week, My Baum-length epic is entering its final phase, but don’t worry– there are more surprises to come on the way to its conclusion…

“Old friends”

It looks like our travelers are getting a well-deserved moment to catch their breath…

… and I think I have, too, so I’m going to take the opportunity to give myself a break from the weekly deadine to play catchup on the print collections of Watusi’s time in Oz (among other projects). Never fear, though– there’ll be fresh Watusi comics coming your way in the interim: some new, some long unseen favorites, so stay tuned!

(Back to Oz on Wednesday, January 1, 2020!)
