Zenescope finally does Oz

Zenescope is finally planning on releasing their Oz comic book series starting this July as part of their Grimm Fairy Tales line. Oz is seen as one of the four separate universes within the Grimm storyline, which also includes Wonderland, Neverland, and Myst. The first issue sees the witches of Oz on the hunt for the Veridian Scepter, a lost mystical weapon that's tied to the Emerald City and the green life-force power prevalent through all the fairy-tale realms. Their search leads them to Kansas and the Gale farm, where they run into Dorothy. From there, the series will follow the traditional Wizard of Oz story and take the girl off to see the Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow, but not the Wizard. There's actually a different ruler of Emerald City. Both Wicked Witches will be seen here, as well as the obvious flying monkeys.

  1. Cripes, Dorothy and the Wicked Witch look like strippers. I mean, I've no objection to sexy women and the art is great, but it's pretty ridiculous nonetheless- it's almost a parody of how innocent material can get hyper-sexualized.
