    Skottie Young's artwork is as masterful as ever. He is without a doubt one of most consistently high-quality artists in the business and never fails to turn in artwork that is as stylized as it is beautiful, and as dynamic as it is heart-warming (or heart-stopping, if he is drawing Venom). Here his standout character is Zeb. He is uneasy with all this stuff about other worlds and talking animals, which Dorothy is used to by now, and his apprehension shows on his face to earn many laughs. Thanks to his blue overalls, tatter brown hat, big mouth, and emotive eyes, every time he says "Gid-dap, Jim," it is hard not to smile at Young's charming creation on the page. Read Full Review

    But Eric Shanower and Skottie Young bring the charm that made their first three volumes hits to this next story, giving the underground world some excellent visuals, and making the scenes of the characters walking on air (which honestly never made sense to me, even in the magical setting) look comprehensible. The characters grow and develop through Young's fine visual "acting," making Zeb and Jim the horse fit in well with the established world, and bringing the proper sense of arrogance to Eureka to make her stand out amongst the rest of the Ozian creations. Very good art, wonderful script, making this a fine interpretation of the story. Read Full Review
