Press Release:

The Award-Winning Oz Series Continues in DOROTHY & THE WIZARD IN OZ #1 (of 8)!

Journey back to the land of Oz as Marvel is pleased to announce Eric Shanower and Skottie Young’s next chapter in their Eisner-winning saga, Dorothy & The Wizard in Oz #1 (of 8)! Set off by the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake Dorothy, joined by her cat Eureka, are transported back to the imaginative new world of Oz where anything is possible! But when Dorothy and her friends find themselves trapped in a realm made of glass, The Wizard of Oz must come to their rescue.

“I really look forward to following Dorothy, the Wizard, and their newest friends on their underground adventures in Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz,” said Shanower. “I can’t wait to see what Skottie comes up with when he shows us the bizarre vegetable people, the soundless wooden gargoyles, and how he’ll deal with the valley of invisibility.”

“I’m excited to jump right into the 4th OZ novel. This one has a wide range of crazy characters that I’m dying to get my brush on,” added Young. “I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the amazing response the OZ graphic novels have received from fans and our peers. It’s so flattering and just gives me that much more motivation to try and push even further with each adaptation.”

Sure to delight fans of all ages, Shanower and Young’s critically acclaimed adventure continues this September in Dorothy & The Wizard in Oz #1!
