    Whether you're an adult or child, this comic book is a must-have. Young and Shanower manage to make you remember fondly what it's like to be young and have an unknown, fantastic world laid out before you. And if you can't remember, they certainly make you wish you that could. Read Full Review

    IGN - Richard George Nov 4, 2009

    Consistency is simply the name of the game here. Marvelous carries on the excellent standard set by Wonderful. The same drawbacks are still here as well. Individual issues end in very awkward spots and obviously the story and characters are very basic in depth and motivation. And yet none of that really matters. Marvelous Wizard of Oz is easily one of the most charming, visually stunning works in the industry. Readers of all ages and tastes should once again feel free enter the world of L. Frank Baum.

    Issue #1 doesn't end with a cliffhanger, or a dramatic splash page. It seems built for the collected edition, providing the first part of what will be a longer story of adventure. And that's okay, because a comic like this will surely have a long shelf like in book form. With Young's art, it may have a chance to become read and enjoyed by more readers than have read Baum's original. And that's quite an accomplishment. Read Full Review
