Comic description

How the Wizard Came to Oz is the story of a clever ventriloquist named Oscar Zoroaster Diggs who is carried away by a balloon to the Land of Oz, where he quickly runs afoul of the Wicked Witch of the West and her sister the Wicked Witch of the East. This comic is based on my book 'How the Wizard Came to Oz' that was published in 1991.


I am the author and illustrator of six children's, 'How the Wizard Came to Oz' being the first, as well as a number of freelance cartoons.

This isn't Ray Bolger's Scarecrow. Definitely not!

I'm glad you like the comic. In my original 1991 children's book the Winkies do say "Oh,my!" I really don't remember why I decided no to do it in the comic.

Did you think "Oh my!" was laying it on a bit too thick? I would have done it. Loving this comic!

"Wizard's arrival"
Hey Donald, sorry I missed your response until now. The region was called Omaha from at least as early as 1813 when Manuel Lisa established a large trading post there. Omaha is named after the tribe that lived there. So it was called that long before it was established by the U.S. in 1854.

Thank you for your kind words. I haven't stopped. I just had another project I had I to finish. There will be more pages added to "How the Wizard Came to Oz" very soon.
