Product description

From Booklist

The magic of L. Frank Baum's Oz is alive and well in this volume of stories. Dorothy, Scarecrow, and their pals are on hand to share adventures and make new friends. They meet Valynn, the vigilant guardian of the enchanted apple tree that keeps Oz's magic alive, they hunt for a crimson-tailed quipperug fish on the Secret Island, and they rescue Ozma from the clutches of the Ice King. They even discover the fate of the Good Witch of the East and venture off across the Deadly Desert to save a forgotten forest. Shanower does a fantastic job capturing the wonder and adventure of Oz. Dorothy, Ozma, and the entire cast come to life again, and even new characters feel familiar. The art is a tapestry of lavishly bright color with elegant line work that smoothly mixes classic children's book art and American comic-book styles. This is a must-read for Oz fans, but it will also attract newcomers to the wonder of Baum. Tina Coleman

About the Author

Eric Shanower is the Eisner Award-winning and New York Times best selling cartoonist of Age of Bronze, a graphic novel retelling of the Trojan War. Age of Bronze is a work in progress. Four volumes have been published and the story is more than one-third complete. When finished, Age of Bronze will tell the entire story of the legendary war at Troy, weaving into one the many tellings and permutations of the story throughout the centuries. Shanower is the writer of the comic series Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland with art by Gabriel Rodriguez. This series resurrects Winsor McCay's classic comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland for a modern audience. 

Shanower's illustrations have appeared in magazines, in childrens books, and on television. His comics have been published around the world and include such works as his Oz graphic novel series (currently collected as Adventures in Oz), An Accidental Death with writer Ed Brubaker, The Elsewhere Prince with writers Moebius and R-JM Lofficier, and the introductions to Harlan Ellison's Dream Corridor. He resides in San Diego with his partner. When he's not writing or drawing, he's often swimming, dancing, or reading, usually not all at the same time.
