I'm really digging this book.  Even though I've seen the movie more than once, I still find myself wondering what's going to happen next since this is based more on the book rather than movie.  The combination of the writing and art just works so well together.  Issue #1 sold out as well.  It's a great book.  You know the story but haven't seen it this way.  I can't wait for the next issue.
One of 2008’s hottest—and most acclaimed—new series continues into 2009 even hotter than before, as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz #2 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). The Wonderful Wizard of Oz #2 Second Printing Variant, from the Oz dream team of Eric Shanower and Skottie Young continue Dororthy’s adventures in this strange new world—and brings her face to face with some new allies!

“Eric Shanower presents Oz as the fable that it's intended to be…the aesthetic appeal of this book is nearly unrivaled in terms of a product perfectly matching its aura with its basic design.”—Daniel Crown, IGN.Com

“It really is as beautiful as any of the best illustrated children books you’d find, and tells a story in way that pages that all look like they should be framed should never be able to.”—Jan-Ken-Pon, BookSpotCentral.Com

“Shanower and Young just don't do Baum's book justice, they in some ways make it even better. I absolutely adore this adaptation, and give high marks for all involved.”-- Greg McElhatton, ComicBookResources.Com

With two quick sell outs and loads of acclaim, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on upcoming issues of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!

I said it before (I think when I posted that the first issue sold out), it's a great book.  And if you have any younger siblings or a girlfriend, they'd probably love it too.  It's the perfect "all ages" book.  It's not watered down for kids but they can appreciate it too.  Lil' G-Girl loves it too (she's five).  I'd love an animated movie based off this comic.
