5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy Returns to Oz... Sept. 18 2011
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"Ozama of Oz" is the third volume in Marvel Comics' superb production of Frank Baum's famous Oz fantasy series. Eric Shanower and Skottie Young turn in another terrific performance translating Oz into graphic novel format.

As the story opens, Dorothy is accompanying her Uncle Henry on a voyage to Australia. A fierce storm blows Dorothy overboard, where she takes refuge in a floating chicken coop. She soon finds herself on the shores of the strange land of Ev, accompanied by a talking chicken named Billina and the wind-up mechanical man Tik-Tok. In order to return home, Dorothy will have to confront the fearsome Wheelers, the strange Princess of Ev, and finally the wicked Nome King. She will get help from old friends such as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, but most of all from Ozma, the new Queen of OZ. At the end, Dorothy and Billina will have to solve a terrible riddle to save all their friends...

"Ozma of Oz" is very highly recommended to fans of Marvel Comics' adaptation of the Wizard of Oz novels by L. Frank Baum.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh look at an old story Sept. 13 2011
By Christopher Iller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just love this series. This book in particular is great. And I'm not just talking about the story. I think this graphic novel adaption just brought an old story written about 100 years ago into the present. I read the Oz books when I was a kid, and now I'm reading them to my kid. Then I found out these graphic novel adaptions were in the works. Perfect timing. I wasn't sure about the Tin Man's new look, but everything else is awesome. The artist(s) really captured the feel of this story and made it even more interesting. I can't say enough. If you like the Oz books (and not just the Judy Garland movie), you will do yourself a favor and read these versions and get them for your collection. I see the next one is on the way, and would love to see them continue on with the series (although the original books started dwindling in story quality about 5 or 6 books in). I hope the graphic novels will help fix some of the quality problem (as well as some of the continuity that was thrown out the window in later books) without losing anything. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Whimsical and Wonderful March 5 2013
By George Hagenauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Shanower does an incredible job in making Baums characters real in the 21st century. Much as I love the Shanower's own illustrated Oz graphic novels, I enjoy Skottie Young's approach just as much even though it is a drastic change from the classical illustrative approach to the subject matter. His expressive redesign of the characters really works the perfect reimagining of a classic kids story. This book this week goes on loan to a friend's 8 year old

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy Gale is back. July 16 2012
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a Marvel Comics graphic novel adaptation of L.Frank Baum's third Oz novel. Interestingly, this is the second time Marvel tried to do a graphic novel based on this book. In 1976, a graphic novel was produced with a script by Roy Thomas and artwork by Alfredo Alcala. It was completed, but after it was discovered that Ozma of Oz was not in public domain, Marvel canceled the project rather than pay the Baum family for the rights. That graphic novel has never been published and probably never will be. Anyway, this new graphic novel has a script by Eric Shanower and artwork by Skottie Young, just like the recent graphic novels based on the first and second Oz books. They do an excellent job of adaping the book to a comic book format, as you would know if you had read their previous books. Dorothy Gale is back, by popular demand, after being left out of the second book. She falls off a boat and ends up not in Oz, but in Ev, a different magical country. She meets some new characters, the most notable being Billina the yellow hen and Tik-Tok the mechanical man. Don't worry, her friends from Oz show up eventually. This is a great graphic novel which I highly recommend.
