Now that Issue #1 of Emeralds is finally out, we're working on Issue #2, which is scheduled for release early next year. The next chapter actually takes place several years after Issue #1. This might seem like a stretch of time in some ways, but as no one ages much in Oz, you won't see Dorothy looking like somebody's granny. In this of what is a 3-part story arc, all three of the new East, West, and North Witches have completed their training as witches. Glinda sets them and their friends on a quest to try and reactivate an ancient source of magic long thought extinguished in Oz. However, Glinda has a secret agenda of her own to keep, that will make the new Order of Witches question their mentor. All this while Ozma and Dorothy continue their newfound love. We're really looking to hearing input on this from the fans, so please leave us your comments. Thanx.
