The next tale from the 2013 issue of Oziana is "The Way of a Lion" by Jay Davis, with illustrations by Sam Milazzo. It is a poignant, charmingly told tale of a young lion cub dealing with the loss of his parents before learning all that a lion needs to know—including the meaning of courage. Yes, this is an origin story for the Cowardly Lion, and it is very good. (I choose to personally believe it over Roger Baum's version in Lion of Oz.) Davis does an excellent job of taking what little we know about the Lion's early years, and some details and events from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and weaving them together into a story that just feels right. Milazzo's illustrations are also charming and complement the story well. I highly recommend this one!
