Dorothy and her cat Eureka (Hey, what happened to Toto?) are going back to Oz, and Marvel is the man behind the curtains making it all happen for you. Eric Shanower and Skottie Young (whose sketch-blog is AMAZING) are bringing the next chapter in their Eisner-winning series, Dorothy and The Wizard of of Oz #1 (of 8). We’ll be able to pick this up in September, and now that I’m getting back into comic books, I can’t wait to see this one! Wait, September is the same month DC is relaunching all their titles, I’m going to have to start saving.

Here is a little bit from the press release:

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.”
