The latest Oz reading

Also in the latest comics order was The Marvelous Land of Oz #7 from Marvel, again written by Eric Shanower and illustrated by Skottie Young. Not much new to report on the art front, as Young doesn't draw anyone new (well, Glinda is new for this book, but she looks like she did in the adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, of course.) This issue covers from the Scarecrow getting stuffed with money to the Tin Woodman picking a rose on his way out of the Emerald City. So we all know what's going to happen in the final issue, don't we? I am really looking forward to the reaction of comic readers — the ones that are just being introduced to the story through this book — after the final revelations in the concluding issue...
