Marvel is Off to See the Wizard

I love the work of illustrator Skottie Young, shown above is a cover for The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz #1 which is an 8 part series that is starting in December. I’m impressed that Marvel is tackling such a classic story instead of the same old superhero stuff — and it’s nice to see that Skottie from both the imagery from the film and the original Edwardian book illustrations. Just look at this detail of Dorothy in action:


Here’s the full description:

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz #1

“The premiere American fantasy adventure gets the Merry Marvel treatment! Eisner Award-winning writer/artist Eric Shanower (Age of Bronze) teams up with fan-favorite artist Skottie Young (New X-Men) to bring L. Frank Baum’s beloved classic to life! When Kansas farm girl Dorothy flies away to the magical Land of Oz, she fatally flattens a Wicked Witch, liberates a living Scarecrow and is hailed by the Munchkin people as a great sorceress…but all she really wants to know is: how does she get home?”
