When four friends find themselves lost in a mysterious place, their only goal is to find a way home. When the only way home is through a young girl and her magical shoes, how much are they willing to sacrifice to catch her?

Follow Joshua, Tamara, Tommy and Laura down the yellow brick road in this all new action packed adventure. Be amazed when they meet Dorothy Gale and her gang of misfits for the first time, be in awe as they do battle with the Witch of the West, cross your fingers and hope they make it home alive.

The most recent development in the Lost In Oz saga is the graphic novel interpretation. The comic is created using photos instead of illustrations and offers readers a more “in depth” version of the original story, with deeper plots and more twists.

Chapter One of the graphic novel has a tentative release date of July 1, 2007.

The book is exclusively available online at
Paperbacks are $9.99 and hard-covers are $19.99.

Joshua Patrick Dudley, 21, was born and raised in Hooksett, New Hampshire. Son of Laurel Levesque and Michael Dudley and brother to Tamara, Meghan and Caitlin Dudley, Joshua has always been exposed to the arts.

His fascination and love for the stories of Oz started when he was just two years old; he and his mother shared his first viewing of the MGM classic, “The Wizard of Oz.” From that point on Joshua was obsessed with the magical land and its inhabitants.
