An outstanding volume and an important one as well 7. Januar 2010

For those of you that have never heard of this sunday comic a little background. Back in 1904 to promote his newly published sequel to his best selling Wonderful Wizard of Oz L Frank Baum partnered up with comic artist Walt McDougall for a weekly strip featuring the then nationally famous Scarecrow and Tin Woodman together with newly introduced Jack Pumpkinhead and The Wogglebug. The idea was that these 'queer visitors' would leave oz and have mad cap times in the USA. The strip ran a respectable 34 weeks but was no where the hit that Baum had hoped for. The stories are cute and fun. Baum has written better as well as worse tales but these are a nice bunch. The text for these tales has sort of been out and about since the 1960s when a few of them were collected and edited down for a book of the same title. Then in the the late 90s' They were for the most part collected in a book illustrated by Eric Sanower under the title of The Third Book of Oz. Then they were issued again complete and unedited in a book issued by Hungry Tiger Press back in about 2005 called simply Visitors From Oz. This was the best version of the text that we had until now. Here we have an extraordinary volume that gives these little gems the treatment they deserve. Sunday Press has gone back and did a reproduction of the full run of the strip. For the first time since 1904-05 will we be able to see these tales how they were originally presented. The book is HUGE clocking in at about 18x22 inches closed so that when opened it just covers you lap in all it's colorful ozzy goodness. If that weren't enough they gave us a reprinting of the ad artwork, and added in comics by original oz artist W.W. Denslow and Jon R Neil. Truly a great piece to have in any Oz collection.

fantastic and beautiful 24. Februar 2010

I received this book for my last birthday and it blew me away. The marvelous cartoons by McDougall and Denslow are glowing with colors. They bring back an era when electricity, motor cars, and slapstick comedy were all great novelties. McDougall's marvelous work is a series of caricatures and gibson like girls. In contrast to McDougall, Denslows cartoons are full of color and funny characters like Billy Bounce who seems to almost be an early super-hero. When both artists show Dorothy, she is obviously based on Dorothy from the 1902 play as she has a strong resemblance to Anna Laughlin, who was the first actress to play Dorothy on stage. Both Baum and Denslow have wonderful Christmas episodes which features Santa Claus but Denslow's story is interesting as the Tin Woodman is dressed as Santa Claus. In a sense Denslow is the better artist than McDougall as McDougalls pictures rely on Caricatures and stereotypes of nearly every race[if we are to be fair, while McDougall's African Americans are like White faces minstrel shows, all the other characters except the OZ characters are also stereotypes of one form or another. Denslow does feature some other racial stereotypes but they look kinder and not as rude looking. The Native Americans in one comic are not too over drawn and look like gentle people. However Mr. Baum's Stories are still the better tales. The visit to Santa Claus stands out as a funny tale as our friends from OZ find they cannot outcreate Santa Claus and they can't beat him in a race. Another great thing about the book is the extensive Histories about Baum, Denslow, and the history of OZ in Comics keeps you turning the pages for more. It is a great work and for me a great birthday surprize

Here they come! 13. Januar 2011
Von Johnny Heering - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book reprints Sunday newspaper comic strips written by Frank Baum and strring his Oz characters. The comics were produced to promote the second Oz book, The Marvelous Land of Oz, and ran from September 1904 to February 1905. The artist was Walt McDougall. This is not Baum's best work, but it is still quite enjoyable. But that's not all! The book also reprints a rival Oz Sunday strip written and illustrated by W.W. Denslow, who was the illustrator of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This strip ran from December 1904 to March 1905. These strips are also enjoyable. And best of all, all strips are printed in the huge size that they were originally seen in over 100 years ago.

one of the best Oz books i have ever seen 9. Januar 2013
Von Lee E. Blasingame - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
this is one of the best Oz books i have seen or ever bought. it took 20 years to find all 14 Oz books by L Frank Baum in the Books of Wonder reprints of the first editions and with the Little Wizard Stories, this is the last book that i needed for my Oz collection. it is a clumsy 3 foot square book and will not fit into any of my bookcases. still the art work by W W Denslow and John R Neil, who did the books of Oz by Baum, the art and colors of the comic strips are amazing. the size is life size of the newspapers of there day, now our comics are a little three panel strip, these pages are full size for each story. and the historical commentary is well done. a real time capsule of comics from 1904 by one of our favorite story book writers of all time. the world of the Wizard of Oz and its peoples of the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Sawhorse, the Wogglebug and the Gump are all enchanting. reading about them in new (to me anyway) stories is such a treat for ones imagination. L Frank Baum is so full of little insights that tickle ones mind and all his characters seem so charming, not like all those mean characters like in Alice in Wonderland and even the magic doesn't get blackened and evil (really) like in Harry Potter. i have read the books of Oz sense childhood and loved every minuet that i spent with them all in that magical fantasy land, no regrets that i could have dreamed more productive dreams. i was an art student and the visuals for this book as well as all of those first 14 books to the Oz series were a feast for the eyes, and have done me no harm in knowing about them, i am always amused by the simple eccentricities of its inhabitants. most of my friends who collect these books have never heard or seen this big book, and all who have are politely jealous of me having it. i never did see it in a store and the owner of the bookstore that i work in was amazed by it. i hope there are more such treasures as these to come in the future, because a person never stops dreaming of good places and if you can keep an innocent bent on your dreams, you will age slowly and always have a touch of a child about you...it's like never growing old.
Don't buy the Kindle version, but this large, beautiful hardcover! 20. Februar 2015

After Baum had written The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Baum teamed up with cartoonist Walt McDougall to create a comic strip called Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz. Why didn't he use W.W. Denslow (the illustrator for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) for this comic strip? It turns out that Baum and Denslow had a falling out over royalties, and they went their separate ways. Denslow in fact went on to create a less-successful competing comic strip called Scarecrow and Tinman. Looking at the illustrator for the remaining Oz books (John R. Neill), it is clear to see that Baum and Denslow never patched things up, which is a shame because the first book definitely had a magical feel to it (not to take anything away from Mr. Neill).

When one looks at Sunday Press Books, it is a small publisher with a limited number of titles. However, what they lack in terms of quantity, they more than make up for in terms of quality! Their book Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz is a whopping 16" x 18" so unless you have huge bookshelves, it won't fit on them. That's not a bad thing, though, as the comic strips are printed in full color and original size. People my age and younger might not realize how big comic strips actually used to be, but compared to the strips you find in modern newspapers, they are ginormous.

As for the comics content themselves, Baum's comic strip focuses on Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Woggle-Bug, the Flying Gump, and the Animated Saw-Horse's trip through the United States. The adventures are more misadventures, as they stumble upon a beauty doctor, a pawn shop (where Saw-Horse is pawned), celebrate Thanksgiving, and even run into Dorothy and Toto. The strip is humorous, but definitely has a promotional feel to it, as it is like they are touring the United States to plug the second book in the Oz series. Denslow's comic strip features Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Their journeys are both domestic (Fifth Avenue) and international (Bermuda and the Yucatan Peninsula).

Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz is a true treasure of a book. It not only contains Oz comic strips, but also another Denslow comic called Billy Bounce, another McDougal comic called Hank the Hermit, and a comic strip by John R. Neill (the 2nd Oz illustrator). There is also biographical information on Baum and McDougal. This book combines history and art. It's like opening a time capsule as you turn through the pages and look at what comics and newspapers were like over 100 years ago. It is surely a treat for the true Oz lover and the comic book lover as well.
