Comic Review: The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz(Image Comics)

About two years before Marvel Comics came out with its adaptation of
The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, Image Comics released an English-language version of the Spanish comic mini-series by Enrique Fernandez. This was adapted by David Chauvel, and released in America as a single graphic novel.

It's a very strait-forward interpetation of the original book, although Fernandez's artwork makes for a fantastic new take on it. He has a style that's totally different than most American artists, which is very reminicent of the old 2-D Rankin/Bass animated features(Thundercats, Last Unicorn).

Image formatted this in it's original album-size, and at an affordable price. Oz fans should love this collectors item.
