The latest Oz reading

The comics order came this week, with two Oz-related books in it. The first, and less Ozzy, of the two was issue #30 (!) of Age of Bronze, Eric Shanower's eppic adaptation of the Trojan War. This one takes place almost entirely within Troy, as a very pregnant Helen attempts to leave the city, and Pandarus pulls a few psychological tricks on his niece Cressida and on Troilus to finally get those two lovebirds together. Eric's artwork is, as always, gorgeous. I just wish this book could come out a lot more often, but he's a busy guy, and this kind of art takes time to do right.
