Marvel to do Ozma Of Oz
Comic Shop News recently noted that Eric Shanower is adapting the upcoming Marvel Comics run of Ozma Of Oz. This will follow the series of Whe Wonderful Wizard Of Oz(now available in a collected hardcover)and The Marvelous Land Of Oz as drawn by Scottie Young. Ozma Of Oz is the third book in the Oz series written by L. Frank Baum where Dorothy finally returns to Oz to help her friends defeat the wicked Nome King. Expect the new series to be out later this year. This would be a first as the last time Marvel did their adaptations of the Oz books back in the 80s when they did the first two books as comics, but would've had to pay the licensing fees from the Baum Trust as the book wasn't in the public domain at the time.
