AT LONG LAST, THE FINAL REALM OF POWER IN THE GRIMM FAIRY TALES UNIVERSE IS R EVEALED... AND THERE'S NEVER BEEN AN OZ QUITE LIKE THIS! This modern take on the story re-imagines the classic tale in the signature Zenescope style. The Witches of OZ are searching for a lost weapon of power known as the Veridian Scepter. Their quest leads them to the most unlikely of places...the farmlands of Kansas and the home of the unlikeliest of heroes... Dorothy Gale. Incredible cover art by superstars J. Scott Campbell, Artgerm, Eric Basaldua, and Ale Garza! The epic Oz adventure starts here!

    Front Towards Gamer - PNeafsey Jul 12, 2013

    In true Zenescope fashion the art is beautiful, Dorothy is beautiful yet strong and there is big trouble brewing. The pacing is fantastic for a first issue setting crumbs of a larger mystery, introducing characters and establishing it's own presence. There's a promise that the events in Oz will spill over into the rest of the Grimm Fairy Tale Universe with Dorothy standing at the center of things. As a standalone title or accompanying the Grimm titles, OZ #1is a fine addition to Zenescope's lineup, one that I can't wait to see where this yellow brick road takes us. Read Full Review

    Overall, OZ is off to a solid start, The story is done in a whole new way while paying respect to the original. With a fantastic antagonist, I'm looking forward to seeing Dorothy's adventure once again. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Jul 5, 2013

    Like they did with Jungle Book, Zenescope is taking a classic story and really making it something unique without losing those elements that make the story so endearing. Just updating them to a more 21st century feel. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Aug 1, 2013

    The art by Rolando di Sessa and Glauber Matos is good, but it's not good enough to get me past a story that seems long on random story beats and setup and short on characterization and explanation of what is actually going on. There were far too many pages in this issue that I didn't think really advanced the story or conveyed any essential information. They were just "there". The pacing in this issue was off, there were 24 pages of story that felt like 16 or less. We could have gotten well into Oz and introducing some of the other main characters & points of conflict all within this #1 issue. As it stands, I was not left with a compelling desire to read #2.
