Leeds, United Kingdom - Meg
Not sure I trust “Dorothy.”
Of course not. I think it’s well established that the ghost is not trustworty. that being said, it doesn’t mean it’s always lying to you.
Excuse me and my trigger posting. I meant to revise that. Basically, just because you can’t trust it, it doesn’t mean it’s lying. It’s just probably not telling the entire truth.
And either way, Emma will forget. I think it sounds like the sword was to imprison madame specter, where the tree is the center of her spell. Maybe removing the sword will be like Pandora opening her box…
I wouldn’t trust someone who’d initially said they wanted to eat me, either. Especially when they make that face in panel 10.
It is just unvalidated speculation that Mask Lady is Dorothy is the Ghost.
Still loving Emma’s complete lack of hue against the mauve-y tinted everything. Also very excited to see this and all the other story lines eventually draw together. So much goodness going on.
I definitely wouldn’t trust someone who said they wanted to eat me either… but Emma’s reactions to this is interesting. And i’m eager to see what will happen when she eventually draws the rapier out the tree…
Hey, this is my first comment ever (and I probably won’t make many more in the future). This page is really interesting and I’m just taking a guess here but, could it be that before Emma, someone else who didn’t belong in Oz came using the sword’s power to travel and decided to “break” Oz’s story ?
I think Emma should have taken the sword. I’m starting to really like miss Ghost (ghost of all the previous Dorothys ? So cool !).
Votre BD est superbe les filles, continuez comme ça ! Ça fait plus d’un an maintenant que les mardis, jeudis et samedis sont les jours que j’attend le plus chaque semaine (attenre du samedi au mardi c’est le plus dur) et j’espère que ça continuera encore pendant de longues années ! 😉
Merci beaucoup! Ça fais plaisir d’avoir des lecteurs aussi motivés! 😀 (et d’y voir des compatriotes francophones, c’est super aussi!)
L’épée est présentement au centre de milles théories… j’ai hâte de voir la réaction des gens dans le futur 😀
Good decision, Emma. Rash acts never do any good.
Not true. Many heroes make a living of rash acts, often thwarting plans of baddies almost solely by rash acts that no sane person would do.
I don’t know. To me there seems to be a difference between being bold or being careless in most stories. Careless characters might solve some things that way, but their acts often come with a price.
And the story creator gets to decide what is bold and what is rash.
Anthropic principle. You hear the stories of those who took rash actions and lived, but not those who took rash actions and died… It provides an unrealistic bias. The successes are a minority, and certainly don’t justify rashness as a sensible course of action.
first, i am really glad i took french in high school. second, i always take the sword of power from the tree of ill omen offered by the porcelain masked amalgamations of my dead predecessors. doesn’t every one?
And the adventure get even more strange, now she only needs to find out where the sword is and what the conditions are reaching/pulling it
Wait til she explains to everyone else where she’s been this whole time.
“What a dream! And you were there, and you…”
“No, wait, I was ALL ALONE! YOU JERKS. Why couldn’t you have come helped with the weird ghost?!”
Has anybody have a “red shift, blue shift” vibe here?
Every time I start to trust the ghost here, her depiction changes to something spooky. This is manipulation! A cheap play on my emotions!
Well done, ladies! Carry on.
Silly ghost. Everybody knows to leave the weapon in a stab wound. Pulling it out just makes the wound worse.
Haha, I wanted to leave a comment on this page today, and I just noticed that I’ve written my very first comment on this precise page already, what were the odds ?
I wanted to tell you that, thanks to you and your wonderful comic, I’ve decided to read Baum’s books. I’ve already bought (from an awesome website that sells used books !) and read the first two and I am now reading the third. I absolutely love it when I stumble upon a character or a scene that didn’t appear in the 1939 film but that I’ve already read about in your commic. Dorothy’s yellow chicken for example ! I didn’t know there really was a hen in the story. ^^
I came to this exact page to tell you all that because I’ve found a nice quotation from our friend the scarecrow that fits here : “Folks do not smile so delightfully when they mean mischeaf”. When I read that phrase in the book, I knew I had to come say something here. Reading my old comment makes me laugh too, seeing as I thought the ghost was “nice” because of it’s cute smile. Hehe.
Well, I’ve said all I had to say for now.
Bonne continuation les filles !
Thank you!! I’m really glad Namesake led you to read the Oz books. They’re fantastic, and I wish I had read them when I was younger. The second book is my favorite out of the initial six.
I wish I had read them when I was younger too, but late is better than never. At least I’m reading them now. ^^
Oh my goodness, I archive-binged on the comic until this point and it’s amazing! Love the characters, really dig the art. Will have to read the rest of Baum’s books now too. 😀
Sadly I have reached this point and it seems like the next three comic pages have broken images! I’m afraid to keep reading for fear I’ll miss something important! is this just an issue on my end? the other comic pages have loaded just fine for me..
I’m having the same issue as Linda
Just thought I’d chime in to say I’m having the same problem the other two are.
For reference, I’ve tried using a Kindle Fire and an Andrpid browser, and neither one shows the images up to the first page of Chapter 9 after what would be the cover.
Everything is really great so far, so it’s a huge bummer to be stopped here.
Anyway, thanks for making something so interesting! I look forward to reading more, though for now I’m stuck here.
I still need to upload the pages, but it’s a bit further down the to-do list. I’ll let folks know as soon as it’s done.
Awesome, that’s good to hear.
I’m sure you’ve got a lot to take care of, so thanks for taking the time to respond.
If only we had a crack team of flying monkeys to help out.
… So the ghost tells her to take the sword, then tries to spirit her away BEFORE she can do so?
So this Dorothy ghost and the no-eyes ghost are the same ghost and the ghost of Karen at the library is a different ghost?
The image is broken
I’m seeing it just fine here. Have you cleared your browser cache?
Hello, this is a really great comic! I’m enjoying how intricate the story is. It seems as if every frame moves the plot forward somehow. As a result, I share Linda’s reluctance to continue past these pages, which I can’t see. if it isn’t too much trouble, a short summary of what happens on each missing page would be nice. Some of the comments hint at strange happenings, but I’d prefer to hear it directly from the creators.
Thank you for sharing your art with us. It’s just amazing.
I’ll add these pages to the list to re-upload this weekend. Thanks for bringing it to our attention! It baffles me how it’s working for some, but not for others.
Thank you for your help. Technology, it works in mysterious ways.
Ok, try now. Do the pages work OK?
All except “A Precious Bond” are working for me.
OK, will switch that one in!
