Dorothy And The Wizard In Oz #3/8
By Eric Shanower
When Dorothy Gale, her cousin Zeb, his horse Jim and Dorothy’s kitten Eureka were swallowed into the ground by a earthquake, they found themselves in the beautiful and strange Land of the Mangaboos. Here animal talk, people walk on air and everyone in made of vegetables! However, the Mangaboos price and sorcerer accused the group of purposely destroying part of the city, sentencing them to death!
Fortunately, Oz arrived just in time wowing the Mangaboos with his wizardly charm and saying his friends from a horrible fate! Proving their value, the travelers toured the kingdom coming upon a garden where the Mangaboos grew, particularly the next Princess of the kingdom ho was awaiting picking. The Prince had other intentions though: to destroy Dorothy and her friends, and rule forever!
Facing another threat, Dorothy acted quickly, picking the Princess from her vine and escaping death once again. They may be safe for now, but will the friends ever escape this strange underground world?
My 2 Cents
I found this at a friend’s possession hence I ended up reading it for a short fun. I thought, this would be another classic gone comic… but I’d realized this is classic gone rogue Marvel style. It’s kind of cute, and I regret not grabbing the 1st volume of this series.
Strangely.. the Queen of the vegetable people, has Queen of Hearts voice in my head. Yes… Vegetables! *silent tumbleweeds rolling*
Anyhoo, great storyline. I’m so trying to find the 1st volume. Soft gentle graphic coloring. I do not recommend this for any children under 13 years old.
