Lost Girls is an adult graphic novel written by Alan Moore with art by Melinda Gebbie published partially in 1991-1992 in a magazine called "Taboo" before being released in full in 2006. It portrays a sort of alternate Oz in that the fairy lands of Dorothy Gale, Alice Fairchild (Wonderland), and Wendy Darling (Neverland) do not exist but are instead made up of psycological fantasies used by them to recover from sexual abuse trauma.

In the book, the three now grown women meet by chance all at the Hotel Himmelgarten in Austria before WW1 begins and they share their experiences. Dorothy in pacticular tells her story in the 3rd story entitled "The Great and Terrible" with the tagline quote "I am Oz, the great and terrible. Who are you and why do you seek me?". She was at least inside her farmhouse during the cyclone but landed back in Kansas without landing on anyone, Fearing she would die while in the cylone, she had her first moment of self-pleasuring herself. She later has romantic encounters with her three farmhands that she refers to as Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion (a reference to the 1939 film's Hunk, Hickory, and Zeke). While telling her story, she refers to her Uncle Henry and Aunt Em but later admits that they actually her father and stepmother. Going to New York with her father under the pretense of seeking psycological help, he abuses her there which makes her feel guilty of all that her stepmother has went through. She decides to get away from him and travel the world.
