Oz-o-phile Eric Shanower has created this nice variant cover for the first issue of Marvel’s ROAD TO OZ adaptation, which he’s also writing. The insides are drawn by Skottie Young, so it’s win all around.
You may recall that this is the first proper sequel to THE WIZARD OF OZ, written by L. Frank Baum, and finds Dorothy returning to Oz and confronting rising tensions with rising third world countries and issues of gender and identity. And I’m not even kidding.
