Not as enjoyable as the first volume. Of course, that's not Shanower and Young's fault, the issue lies in the source material, which isn't as much fun as the classic "Wonderful Wizard." This time around, there's no Dorothy, Toto, Lion, Wicked Witch, or Wizard. Instead we get Tip, Mombi, Jack Pumpkinhead, Sawhorse, H.M. Woggle-Bug, T.E., and General Jinjur, who can't quite compare. Skottie Young's artwork is inspired once again, with slight touches of Bill Watterson and Berkeley Breathed. The first volume was so good that I'll probably give the series one more try before abandoning it (unless it returns to its former glory, of course).
