I know almost nothing about Midnight Kiss, but I do know that the characters go to Oz in the second issue, are talking with the Scarecrow in the third, and are dealing with a civil war in Oz in the third. This is a Mature Themes book, so it's not for kids or anyone who wants their Oz to remain pure and gentle.

Antarctic Press goes to a different world of wonder this month with an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland by Rod Espinosa. This should be a good book for all-ages.
- Alice in Wonderland #1 - Order Code: DEC05 2794 - $3.50
Archaia Studios Press is putting out a very good looking little book called Mouse Guard that might be of interest to Oz fans. It's about a group of mice whose job it is to protect their fellows from all the creatures that want to eat them. There's a nice preview on the website, so go check it out.
- Mouse Guard #1 - Order Code: DEC05 2813 - $3.50
