Legends of Oz by Denton J. Tipton and Blair Shedd

     Legends of Oz by Denton J. Tipton and Blair Shedd. It will be published on March 18, 2014. This is an advance review of this book. Based on the animated film Legends of Oz! This child’s comics are for all ages. The story follows the characters after Dorothy leaves. The characters didn’t know that trouble was on its way and they would need Dorothy back to help save the day. As the classic characters the Lion, the Tinman and the Scarecrow goes on the hunt to bring Dorothy back. As the wicked witch of the west’s brother, Jester has come and he’s nothing but trouble. The flying monkey and Jester is causing trouble all over as the book takes you to on a journey. Since this is a comic/ graphic book a main part of the story is told just by the illustrations which are a huge part to understanding the story. The illustrations are perfect in this story; brightly colored, emotions in the characters, and has a way how showing what is happing in a way that is wonderful and easy to understand,
     I enjoyed this story more then I thought I was. I found giggles here and there as I read it to my brother. I loved the illustrations and how the characters just popped right out. The story line was good; it has adventure but was also quite funny. Any Oz fan of any age will enjoy this new take on an amazing classic.
