Two New, Very Different, Oz Comics For July

z1

Oz is all around us. Or at least, recently at the cinema. Why? Because it’s out of copyright, in the public domain, and no one seems to have landed a successful trademark on those two letters.

One is based on the sixth of Frank Bauym’s Oz books. One is… not.

See if you can guess which solicitation and covers are which. Shouldn’t be hard.
