At the dawn of the 20th century, L. Frank Baum created a world of wonders that was to hold a permanent place in the culture of America: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz . Then in 1904, to promote his second book, Baum, along with master cartoonist Walt McDougall, brought his famed characters to Earth in a new medium, the comic strip. Queer Visitors from Marvelous Land of Oz had arrived. At this same time, Oz illustrator W.W. Denslow, offered his own Sunday feature, Scarecrow and the Tinman. Now both of these rare cartoon features are collected for the first time, magnificently restored and presented in full broadsheet size. Join these timeless characters and explore the culture that was America over 100 years ago. You surely won't be

in Kansas (or anyplace like it) anymore!

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919), better known by his pen name L. Frank Baum, was an American author chiefly known for his children's books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost works", 83 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work). -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An outstanding volume and an important one as well 7. Januar 2010
Von Edmund Zebrowski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
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.
1.0 von 5 Sternen ZERO as in NOT ONE SINGLE illustration in the November 2015 Paperback edition. 2. Dezember 2015
Von Nina Malischev - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I don't know what other people received. I ordered this book mainly for the illustrations. Apparently the rights to it have been bought by someone who is doing it print by demand as it is dated just a few days after purchase on the back pages, and it contains ZERO illustrations, as in NOT ONE SINGLE illustration. It is entirely text. I bought the paperback version, so beware if that's what you are thinking of ordering. It's a total rip-off in my opinion and I wish I had just sent it back -and if not overwhelmed with the holidays would. If you want to see the illustrations, DON'T buy the paperback version as of November, 2015, because there is not one single illustration of any kind in my copy. I would give this ZERO stars if at all possible.

2.0 von 5 Sternen NOT comic strips! 10. Januar 2015
Von Marcella Wright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The description of this as being "comic strips" is totally dishonest That isn't what it is at all! There are probably less than a dozen illustrations in the entire book & the few there are are not captioned. This book is mostly poorly formatted text.
