The Complete, Annotated Oz Squad Vol. One – Steve Ahlquist

You can read my blog on the first Oz story to learn that I both never grew up with the Baum stories and didn’t really liked it once I finally read it, although it is interesting how Ahlquist picks up on and continues the tales in a gritty, incredibly violent, way. Dorothy and the gang are now CIA officers who need to maintain order between our world and the magical one of the stories. The graphic novel is somewhat confusing as the characters have powers that may or may not be discussed in other Oz book and there is a history between the two worlds, which Ahlquist doesn’t fill us in on. I did like the action, but I doubt true Oz fans will.
