Did you read The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz eight issue mini-series by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young? If you've read it or have seen any images from it, you probably have an idea how great this series was. If, for some reason, you missed out on it, check out the video review:
I cannot give this a higher recommendation. I'm sure there will be some out there that simply are not interested in the Wizard of Oz. As you saw, even though I purchased the individual issues, I also wanted to have this in the hardcover format. It's a great story. The artwork is amazing. It deserves to be given this prestige packaging. This is a comic that you could hand off to family members or friends. They'll be familiar with the story but it's adapted from the novel and not the movie. With all the darkness and death in comics these days, this is just a refreshing change of pace (even though there are some dark moments here as well).
Who has read this besides me? Help me get the word out on how awesome this is.
