It’s no secret that I love the Wizard of Oz series. I’ve spent a lot of time reading them as a child and beyond.

I love the premise of women taking on the family business. I love the art and style of the book. It just fell a little flat.

I adore L. Frank Baum’s Oz. I remember reading the books and seeing the movies. I loved The Dreamer Of Oz (the biography with John Ritter) and Return to Oz. So when I heard about Marvel doing these treatments, I loved the idea of it.

And reading this, I feel like it is totally worth the read. For comic fans, and those who haven’t read comics before.

And, most importantly,
