Aw man. To be honest I was digging the whole history thing.
Hahaha. There will be more of that later, i’m sure.
“The fields have spread…”?
It disturbs me that Glinda is asleep while there’s some other witch out there taking her job and being all creepy about it.
You’re supposed to be disturbed. Join Jinjur’s army!
…so, the witch that showed up and tried to take the Selena purse from Emma… not quite what she seemed, as a lot pf us suspected…
I can’t wait! When do you go daily?
Read things carefully. Anlise is claiming to be the good witch of the NORTH. This Glinda is not the same as the pink bubble Glinda from the movie. She’s the witch of the SOUTH. So really, Anlise isn’t claiming anything we can positively say she has no right to. At least not yet.
If I could, i’d be daily right now
But you know how it is. Job, family, all that.
Oh, great, another spelling mistake. I must be tired when I finish these… Thanks for letting us know!
Soooo….She wan’t to save the world…so she won’t get old… Ok then.
This is pretty much as altruistic as Jinjur gets.
The prior version was basically a parody of the Women’s Liberation movement… of the 1900s. She’s practically a paragon of enlightenment in this one.
And let’s be honest, even most men would be right there with her. None of us want to get older, do we? I know I’m tired of watching my hairline lose the battle to my forehead.
Aging/death has gotta be massively more terrifying to the Ozites than for us because for most of their lives they didn’t have to worry about these things, and now, suddenly, they do. We, at least, have our entire lives to accept those eventualities. Plus, death sounds rare in Oz, and old age unheard of, which would probably make them even more mysterious and scary to the Ozites.
Indeed. Very good observation.
… If they never aged and rarely died… it is probably safe to say that Ozites don’t copulate much, if at all… else the population expansion would rapidly have exceeded the capacity of the land to sustain it.
Given how little I know of it canonically, I’d suspect that most Ozites are… well… like Barbie-dolls down there.
Just thought I’d give you two a heads up. I wrote up a review of Namesake over at Tangents.
You can find the review here: http://www.tangents.us/2011/01/25/namesake/
Oh wow, thanks a bunch!
Interesting. These flowers look the same as the red ones that Ozma wears in her hair, and the one that appeared in the same panel as the Wizard of Oz when he took power. Are poppies being used as a symbol of Oz or a symbol of power in Oz? (Or maybe the artist just likes drawing flowers this way.) =)
Can’t it be a little of everything?
The original Ozma always was shown with two large poppies in her hair (as others have pointed out, they make her look suspiciously like an inspiration for Princess Leia — replace the poppies with the hair rolls at the side), so this is just straight from the books.
Baum seemed to like poppies; they showed up more than once.
Several of Padme’s costume really reminds people of Ozma too.
Poppies are a symbol of sleep and illusion. Illusion and transformation is a very repetitive theme in the book.
I was wondering where in this was Jinjur’s motivation. Nice to see her so true to character in this!
Loving this comic so far!
Oh, Jinjur is so much fun as is, I don’t even want to change her a little
Maybe it’s because they’re girl-fighters who wear green, but these girls remind me of he Kiyoshi Warriors
Oz as a lot of girl-only armies. I figure Kyoshi would love it.
LOL! And the motivation ladies is I repeat no wrinkles! *snerk*
Everybody needs a goal.
In their defense, the prospect of aging when you’ve been a hot twenty-something for centuries must be quite terrifying.
Well that answers my answer to why Glenda is MIA.
