Oz comics! August 2013

I reflected last night that I probably should have ordered The Steam Engines of Oz #1 and Zenescope's new Oz comic. Hopefully, I can get them next month.

The Emerald City of Oz #2. Still faithful to Baum, but still quite condensed. The last issue covered six of thirty chapters, this one covers four, though there's a bit from later in the book moved to an earlier point. In this issue, we see the Woggle-Bug's college, the Cuttenclips, and the Growleywogs, all depicted in Skottie Young's wonderfully wacky style. The cover for the next issue shows bunnies, so it looks like it'll cover quite a bit of ground. I'll keep sticking around for the next three issues.

The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West #10 finds Tin Man, Tip, Jack, Scarecrow and the Lion head north to Mombi's homestead to look for clues about Ozma's disappearance. Meanwhile, it turns out that Mombi definitely isn't down yet as she presents Scraps with a surprising gift. And we discover exactly what Jinjur has been digging for under the Emerald City. But why exactly?
