All Wound Up for OZMA OF OZ #2

Well, Oz friends, today's Tiger Talk Blog offers you a special sneak-peek at the fabulous second issue of Marvel's Ozma of Oz by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young! And if you missed issue one you can still find it, I'm sure, in the comic store nearest you. It came out last Wednesday!

Our preview shows the art only, without dialog. For that, you'll have to wait till December 1st when the issue goes on sale. Before we jump into full preview mode I wanted to let you know that we now have copies of the collected Marvelous Land of Oz for sale in the Hungry Tiger Press on-line store. Click Here! If you order from us, Eric Shanower will be happy to personally autograph your copy and draw a small sketch in it! Just tell us how you'd like your book signed in the "Special Instructions" box when you're placing your order. Come on!

Ozma of Oz has always been one of my favorite Oz books. Seeing these scenes come to life on the comic pages is really amazing. Wonderful Wizard and Marvelous Land had both been adapted into comics before. But now that the series is into Ozma of Oz suddenly it just seems like, "Wow, they really are adapting the Oz books!" Okay, enough from me. Let's get on to the fabulous preview of Marvel's comics adaptation of Ozma of Oz!

Above you can see Skottie's terrifyingly psychedelic Wheelers. If only Marvel would release a black-light poster version! At the end of #1 the nasty old Wheelers had chased Dorothy and Billina to the top of a hill in the magical Land of Ev. Issue #2 picks up with our girl and our chicken and their first meeting with everyone's favorite robot, Tik-Tok. Enjoy the preview!
