Couple Kickstarters

Well, I'll be leaping into Characters of Oz again soon. I realized that beginning with The Patchwork Girl of Oz, there are many characters in the post-Emerald City Oz books that are important just to that book, and only make minor reappearances (if at all) or have one sudden return in a much later book. So, don't be surprised if you see many characters lumped together in a post, as I did with the People of Evna.

In the meantime, here's a couple Ozzy Kickstarters to donate to...

The Shadow of Oz: A Tarot Deck is from the same creative minds that brought us the Dorothy comic book years ago. Regardless of your beliefs about Tarot, it will feature some great artwork by several great artists, including established Oz artists Eric Shanower and Trina Robbins. This alone will make it a nice addition to your Oz collection, whether you pledge enough to get a deck or buy one after launch. They have twelve days left to meet their $28,000 goal, and are over halfway there!

Who Stole The Ruby Slippers? is a documentary in the works about the nearly nine year old unsolved case of a stolen pair of screen-worn Ruby Slippers. They hope maybe some additional awareness brought about by the documentary could lead to some information at last, but in any case, it will be another part of the MGM film's legacy documented. They just launched with a moderate goal of $12,000.
