It’s fair to say that, as of late, I’ve been on something of an Oz kick. After Disney put out their film Oz the Great and Powerful
last month, I found myself diving back into the depths of my library to pull out Oz titles by L. Frank Baum and other writers, looking at past incarnations of that fantastic place. Then, that not being enough, I started to spin my way through different film versions of Oz as well, using a series of articles over at my movie blog, Reel to Reel
, as an excuse to watch lots of them. And now, glancing ahead at the Previews solicits for the next few months, I see two or three new versions of Oz coming to comics, adding on to the ones that already exist. So, since my mind is inching along those lines anyway, I thought it would be fun to take a little time to look back at some of the Oz comics that have turned up in the past and the ones that are coming our way in the coming months. Here, for the sake of anyone who wishes to expand their Ozian IQ, is a very limited reading list of comic books from the land of Oz.
