I Got #1!!

<t>I forgot to get it on the day it arrived (having had my scheduled rearranged for this week, so I wasn't used to feeling as if it was Wednesday when it's Thursday), so I missed out on getting the Shanower variant cover (as that Skottie original will be the hard-cover as tradition), but I'm glad to...

(*face palm!*)

I forgot to catch a bus into the city on my one Thursday off work and get it from Kings Comics!!  But that means I can enjoy getting it more later tomorrow (Friday) or Saturday when I need some cheering up.

This is gonna be GOOD . . . . !

And I think Filmation's "Journey Back to Oz" could also have benefited from having the Tin Man and Lion willing to come along with Dorothy and help save their FRIEND Scarecrow.

My Oz Character Depiction Rankings

<r>I list my favourite depictions of the Oz characters and their places in faithfulness to the book as follows (there is no "worst" rating, yet - just the ones I like).  At one time I was going to ask you guys to vote the best versions (like an Academy Award version for humour), but decided against ...

I Wish These Oz Books were Real and Published

<t>* Sherwood Smith's 3rd "Sky Pirates Over Oz" and the fourth unwritten 'Dori, Em and the Snow Globe of Oz' book (I'm surprised it was to be a QUADrilogy and not TRI, as usually handled)<br/> <br/> * William Stout's Art of Oz - A Definitive and Complete Collection (all the designs for the Theme Par...
