The best thing about public domain IP is that you can do whatever you want with it. Like, oh I don’t know, taking the Wizard of Oz and making it a war story. After all, you did kind of have Dorothy coming in and killing people. That’s not exactly a nice move.
If only I knew someone who has done exactly that….. How about David Pepose? Yeah that would be good. So it’s a good thing that who you get to listen to in this episode.
And just a warning, we recorded this episode before the Kickstarter campaign for The OZ went public. And it kind of exploded a little bit. In a good way.
Learn such things as:
- How deep can you dive into a well known property where people really only know one part of it?
- What can you do to welcome people who missed the campaign for an earlier part of the series?
- Who is the best blue super hero ever created of all time?
- And so much more!
You can find David on Twitter @Peposed, Instagram @Peposed, on Facebook @ David Pepose Comics, his newsletter Pep Talks, and his website DavidPepose.com. And of course check out the Kickstarter campaign for The OZ.
