KDL Description:

GRAPHIC J OZ

“I love this graphic novelization of the Oz series. Start with The wonderful Wizard of Oz and fall in love with the story all over again. Writer Eric Shanower stays true to the original language while punching up the action. Artist Skottie Young’s Oz is both kinetic and quirky. So much fun.”
—Trevor at KDL’s Kentwood branch
