Adventures in Oz go inside Kindle Eric Shanower is the best contemporary narrator of Oz and a worthy heir to authorship in the body of works started and defined by L. Frank Baum and John R. Neil. In this 1993 series of graphic novels now back in print in a single volume Shanower is at his best! Others have done Oz comics with more edge and in a more contemporary style, but none have been truer to the spirit of Oz. His color illustrations bring the land and its characters to life as no other illustrator has ever done.The Enchanted Apples of Oz introduces the Ozophile to four new enchanting inhabitants of this magical land who are truly memorable: Valynn (the Guardian of the Enchanted Apples), Bortag (the love-struck but inept Magician), Drox (Bortag's friend the flying swordfish), and the Evil Witch of the South. How these four interact with other well-known inhabitants of Oz makes for an enchanting story.The Secret Island of Oz is an outstanding story in the classic Oz style with Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow going on an adventure. Along the way they meet Knot Boy, a living doll made of wood, and Princess Trinkarinkarina, who feels she has outgrown her childhood friend/toy. Of course there is excitement and danger as they explore under, over and through the Secret Island of Oz.In The Ice King of Oz Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman set off on an epic adventure to the Antarctic kingdom of the Ice King. Their new friend Flicker, a human candle, saves the day and almost loses his life in the process.In The Forgotten Forest of Oz Eric Shanower tells us the story of Nelanthe, one of the wood-nymphs of the Forest of Burzee. Burzee with its wood-nymphs is one of the most magical places ever imagined by L. Frank Baum. And Eric Shanower exceeds all his other work to bring this forest to us in all its primordial majesty. His artwork also breathes life into the underground kingdom of the trolls as the trolls and the wood-nymphs go into battle over Nelanthe. When Dorothy and the Scarecrow are drawn into the drama, they help save the day with the help of the Wooden Sawhorse. Oz doesn't get any better than this!The Blue Witch of Oz tells the story of Abatha, the Good Witch of the East. Dorothy and the Scarecrow set off to break the enchantment that has kept Abatha imprisoned in the Great Gray Gilliken Swamp for countless years. Abatha's story and Dorothy's adventures finding her make great reading. Eric Shanower's drawings, as they are throughout this series, are superb. Eric Shanower brought Oz to life in a daring new way with this series. If you have ever loved Oz, this book is for you..

Good Books Adventures in Oz Perfection! This was amazing, I need to run out and buy this so I can revisit it often. Eric Shanower does a fantastic job of capturing the heart and soul of the Land of Oz in these original tales, The Enchanted Apples of Oz and The Ice King of Oz. I absolutely adore his original character Flicker, a candle maker transformed into a candle man.His recreation of classic characters is spot on and the whimsy and magic he conjures would make L. Frank Baum proud. As an added bonus this also included an issue of a DC comic that was cancelled and never completed entitled "General JinJur of Oz". Encase you don't know JinJur is kind of like the Xena of Oz AKA the original HBICThere is also a brief illustrated history of Oz which is wonderfully done, and a bunch of sketches, covers, and concept art.The artwork is gorgeous and brings Oz to life. I can't say enough about this beautiful, charming book!
