Yesterday, Marvel’s Ozma of Oz hit comicbook shops. This is the third title in a series of L. Frank Baum adaptations Eisner Award winner Eric Shaonwer and Skottie Young have done for the publisher. In a sea of Oz spin-offs and re-imaginings, the pair have managed to distinguish their work with a cohesive brand of storytelling that is true to Baum’s plots and social allegorizing but rich with its own dynamism. Earlier this week, the team’s first run, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, was released on the Marvel Comics app. The story is a delight for fans of Oz or the perfect detour for fans of capes. Revisiting the series was a great refresher and has got me excited for what is shaping up to be an excellent series in Ozma of Oz.
