Oops! It seems that time got away from yours truly on Thursday!! That’s what I get for wasting an hour on Katie Couric’s softball interview of Manti T’eo.
Well … it just means that Mary Marvel Week will be extended by one day. I’m sure the Shazam Girl wouldn’t want the Time Bulleteers to feel cheated.
Today’s story takes Mary Batson’s decided resemblance to Judy Garland’s Dorothy Gale a step further by introducing our heroine to three analogues of Oz’s most famous residents: a Scarecrow, a Tin Man and … ummm … a giant talking sausage.
(I guess a talking lion was a bit too similar to Captain Marvel’s feline friend, Mr. Tawky Tawny.)
From Wow Comics #48 (Fawcett, October 1946), here’s “The Modern Wizard Of Oz.” The story was written by Otto Binder and drawn by his older brother, Jack.
