Trapped in Oz and hunted by the armies of the fallen Wicked Witch of the East, Dorothy finds allies in Glinda, the good witch of Oz, and the lion named Thorne. Together they embark on a quest for the veridian scepter, an artifact that can both free Oz from the tyranny of the Wicked Witch, and also send Dorothy home. All that stands in their way is the Wicked Witch of the West and her army of deadly warriors, flying monkeys and demon dogs.

    Overall, OZ #2 is one fun comic. It features a very solid and exciting retelling of the classic story. The journey has begun, it looks like we're in for a treat. Read Full Review

    Since there's so much exposition and on top of that, so many long shots establishing the location of characters, this issue was like reading a fairy tale at a young age. You're not part of the action, but privy to the story. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make this issue difficult to get into. That said, I'm really digging the changes Brusha is adding to not only grow up the story, but also make it an epic fantasy. Read Full Review

    It's an average issue and just barely, which is a shame. It had potential to be more or at the very least just be sex in Oz without showing it. It's a simple formula and it works for Manga so what's so difficult to figure out. I doubt I'll be back for the next issue since I know the interior is never going to come close to the covers. I would rather have one sexy cover with sexy interior art to match, than the six covers that this issue has. Read Full Review
