Meanwhile, Back in Kansas

Poor Toto. I don't know the story behind this one, but Toto seems to be cut out from another piece of paper and glued onto this one. The comic practices the cut-up technique that is its subject matter. I love Devin's Kansas landscape here, the vivid but spare land lines, the surreal and strangely beckoning plants, and the one huge flower with distinct leaves in the corner with his signature. I also like Dorothy's expansive and maybe even slightly menacing cape and hair. And that cut out dog, which is just a smudge but perfectly captures the spirit of the dog Toto in the Wizard of Oz film.
