Reviews - What do customers think about Oz The Manga Pocket Manga Volume 1 (Oz the Manga)?
True to the original novel May 15, 2007
I greatly enjoyed this manga, one of my firsts. It satyed very true to the original novel as well as following the film yet maintained a fresshness and creativity that was very interesting. The illustrations are great and very creative especially the wicked with and her castle which was very cool and conceptual. Well worth the very low price.
Oz comes to comics (or Manga) Jun 27, 2006
This is a pretty good book. I have never read the original novel. But i have seen the movie and Oz the Manga is somewhat different form its movie counterpart. The Characters of the Scarecrow, Tin Man & The Cowardly Loin are given bigger backstories. The Winged Monkeys are far more Scarry & The Wicked Witch of the West seem a little more wicked.
David Hutchison art is very good, especially when it comes to landscapes and tho the writing is not Alan Moore or Frank Miller level writing. It dose hold its own. Overall this is a Interesting Verison of the Wizard of Oz. Im not huge fan of mangas. But i did find this to be a fun read.
