I fell in love with Skottie Young’s art styling a while ago, so when I saw he was working on Marvel’s take on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, I had to pick up a copy.  Issue #2 arrives next week, and Marvel has provided Major Spoilers with a sneak peek where readers discover the origins of the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman.

    That $3.99 price tag kills me. It means I’ll be scoring the back issues in either an Ebay auction or an online retailer.

    “And so she told him of Kansas and how grey everything is there.”

    I got the first issue with the same plan as Josh

    But the trade WILL be awesome

    And although the writing IS pretty bad, I think this trade will be in elementary schools across the nation for decades to come.

    You have to score one for Marvel for that alone
