I am a huge Oz fan and always have been. I know Mr. Shanower's work from when he did the illustrations for Edward Einhorn's Oz book "Paradox in Oz". So I was very excited to discover this graphic novel version of his Oz stories. I absolutely love the artwork! It's like all the Oz book characters that I've read over the years coming to life, like Tik Tok, Professor Wobblebug, and the only soldier in Oz. That alone would give it five stars, however, the five stories inside the volume were not that good. What was up with the flying swordfish in the first story? Not to mention all the trolls, dragons and wood nymphs in the Forgotten Forest of Oz story. I did like the Ice King of Oz as it seemed the most like a true Ozian story. Therefore I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.
