Return to Oz

 OzCon takes place this coming weekend and I'll be on the program.

The 57th OzCon International goes virtual over the internet again this year, due to the Age of Covid. And that means it's FREE to attend on Zoom.

But you have to sign up to get the Zoom link. Here's where to sign up:

First, Skottie Young and I discuss our work on Marvel Comics's popular Oz graphic novel series from 2008-2013. 7 pm, Friday, July 16.

Second, I'll be on a panel about the Oz books of Ruth Plumly Thompson, the successor to Oz creator L. Frank Baum. Thompson's work is a different flavor than Baum's. I expect some controversy on this panel. 1:30 pm, Saturday, July 17.

Third, The Tik-Tok Man of Oz was L. Frank Baum's 1913 stage show, the show he expected to be his crowning theatrical achievement. Why wasn't it? Come listen to my presentation and watch a few clips from the 2014 revival I produced. 8 pm, Saturday, July 17.

Lots of other stuff happening, too. Here's a link to the complete schedule: See you there!

All times are Pacific Daylight Time.
