This is the fourth book in the Marvels Oz comics. This was a great installment in this series, it wasnt as good as Ozma of Oz, but it was still very entertaining.

This time Dorothy, her cousin Zeb, and her cat Eureka are swallowed by an earthquake. They end up as prisoners of the Magnaboos and run into the Wizard of Oz who helps them escapte. They end up fleeing across the Invisible Valley. Eventually they end up back in the Emerald City where all of our favorites are in residence.

My favorite part of these books continues to be the fantastic illustration throughout. I just feel like Youngs illustration style matched the tone of these stories absolutely perfectly.

I missed some of my favorite characters in this book. We dont see much of Ozma or the Tik Tok Man. Most of our time is spent with Zeb, his horse, the Wizard of Oz and Dorothy. The Wizard of Oz isnt my favorite character either, so I didnt enjoy reading about him as much as other characters in the series. I really did enjoy Zebs horse though, he is hilarious throughout.

Overall this was a good installment in this Oz graphic novel series. I didnt like this book quite as much as Ozma of Oz but I do continue to really enjoy the illustration. This continues to be a very high quality series that is appropriate for all ages. I definitely recommend for all those Oz fans out there and for fans of fantasy graphic novels in general.
