The Cowardly Lion of Oz

Publication Date: June 13, 2016

Chapter: The Wonderful Comics of Oz

You're not crazy: I deleted Friday's comic for the time being. I drew a new strip for Cowardly Lion, and the previous commentary follows.

The Cowardly Lion has a problem: he's still a coward. Luckily, he receives a pretty hot tip; if he eats someone with courage, he'll subsequently gain that courage. I'm not 100% sure how the metaphysics of this work out, but it sounds legit. In any event, the Cowardly Lion, our hero, sets out to eat someone.

Meanwhile, there's a clown. Oh God, is there a clown. His name is Notta Bit More, and he's accompanied by an orphan boy he just kinda found named Bob Up. Notta is a MASTER OF DISGUISE, and uses a new costume at every opportunity. He seems to think this will help. Spoilers: it never, ever helps.
