Take a classic tale of a girl lost in a strange land, combine it with art from Skottie Young, let the Marvel PR folk whip out the press release, and you have a sneak peek of the upcoming Wizard of Oz Sketchbook.  I really dig Skottie Young’s art, and seeing his pencils for the Oz tale make me feel all good inside.

Best of all, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz Sketchbook is completely free when it arrives in stores next week.
