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...

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...

Fairy-Tales of Oz

<t>I know L. Frank Baum did not set out to write the traditional fairy-tales, but looking at Kelly Clarkson's sleeping beauty like music video a while back, I couldn't help but get the idea of how different Oz would be if it were a fairy-tale, or vice versa.  So . . . . what Ozzy spins can you give ...

What Would You Change (If You Could)

<t>We all Love Oz, we Love the Books and we enjoy seeing the Films and TV versions . . . but even though you liked what you saw, did you ever wish some things had been done differently?  Did you have ideas you think would have been better?<br/> <br/> Keep in mind that there has to be GOOD REASON for...
