    I am a sucker for fantastical retakes of a standing body of IP. But Hutchinson, Borges, and Finnegan are on their game in this series, regardless of my potential bias. It is a shame that Aspen does not get much circulation, because they really put out some awesome content. I've enjoyed a bit of Four Points this year, as well as Jirni. Again, the studio is built sort of in the Zenescope model as far as their product offerings. Still, they have their own unique marque, and The Legend of Oz remastered fits right in line with the type of high quality content that Aspen is known for. If you are a big fan of revisionist fairy-tale fantasy, The Wicked West will be right up your alley and I strongly recommend you take a look at this series. Issue #2 gets high marks for gorgeous artwork, wonderful story-telling, and snippy dialogue. Tasty. Read Full Review

    There were a lot of elements of the original story introduced in this issue and it's good to get those done and out of the way. There are a lot of good moments in this issue that will make you smile or chuckle while reading the book, I just wish the story had progressed more. The art and dialog are still as strong as the first issue and I can't wait to see what the third issue has in store. This series was Big Dog Ink's first book to crack the Diamond Comics Top 300, so a big congrats to them and hopefully they'll repeat the success with the second issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood Nov 4, 2015

    It's far from the worst thing I've read; it's not even the worst thing I read this week, but who are these kinds of books made for? They must make some kind of money, because non-Big Two publishers keep printing them, but these are the kinds of books that don't even get resold by comic dealers at conventions when they are trying to dump their least successful stock. Reading bad comics is never fun, but it almost feels worse when you read a mediocre one that feels like it was designed to be clutter. Read Full Review
