Eric "Mr. Age of Bronze" Shanower is a HUGE Oz fan. His publishing house is even named Hungry Tiger Press after a lesser-known Oz character. He's done some amazing Oz comics for First Comics and, now, Marvel has recruited him to adapt the first book with artist Skottie Young. These start in June and, brother, if you want something to hand a new comics reader...this will be it. If you've never read the book, you're in for a surprise. The wicked witch of the west is a minor villain and much more of Oz is explored. I've been reading the series to my girls at bedtime and they love them. This will be one to order...tell Rudy or Doug today!
