The Latest Oz Reading, Comic Book Edition

Woo-hoo! New comics came not so long ago! And you know what that means, right? Yes, new Oz comics! So, here's what came:

  • Fables #115. In part 2 of "A Revolution in Oz", Lily looks through the expectacles and sees that Bufkin is going to be in trouble. I have a sneaking suspicion that this will lead to the resolution of that cliffhanger from way back in #108. Two thoughts: (1) I like that the font used in the title box is Denslow. (2) Why is Jack Pumpkinhead asleep when it starts?
  • No Place Like Home #2. Um, yeah, I'm still not sure quite where this one is going, or how it will ultimately be connected to Oz. However, Dee Dee does find a few interesting goodies in a box of her mother's old things, including a pointy black hat and a pair of silver shoes that she thinks would look better in red (nice touch, that).
  • Dorothy of Oz Prequel #1. The first issue of the four issue miniseries prequel to a movie that has now been postponed until next year. Good planning there. Anyway, Dorothy's back home in Kansas, so it's up to the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion to deal with a new threat when an interloper comes to the castle of the Wicked Witch of the West, and he looks like he could be even more dangerous than she was. Let's just say that this is definitely an all-ages book for those who think that the only version of Oz out there is the famous film version of The Wizard of Oz.
