From the post:
Whimsical. That’s the word that came to mind as I made my way through this adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, a 184 page trade paperback available from Marvel Comics.
Everyone knows the film version of Baum’s Oz starring Judy Garland, but I’ve come across few who are familiar with the original 14 books, plus all the other books that came after (something like forty at last count). I haven’t even read all of them, but when I saw that Marvel had started to adapt these works, I wanted to take a look – especially with the new movie, Oz: The Great and Powerful, coming to movie theaters here shortly.
