Eric Shanower and Skottie Young helped introduce L. Frank Baum’s original Oz books to a new generation with their adaptations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Marvelous Land of Oz from Marvel Comics. But their new adaptation, Ozma of Oz, may be their biggest and best story yet.
Filled with some of Baum’s strangest and most memorable creatures, Ozma of Oz unites Dorothy with Oz’s princess, and introduces a whole new world of friends and villains – some of whom were used in the 1985 film Return to Oz and helped traumatize a generation (we’re looking at you, Wheelers).
Shanower and Young got up with Newsarama to talk about their new adaptation, their love of Oz, and the Ozma of Oz from Marvel that you didn’t see. And there’s some exclusive pages from the upcoming adaptation to boot!
