I picked this graphic novel up after reading Dorothy Must Die, because I was in the mood for some more Dark Oz. The artwork is amazing and the tales are darker than ever. After Zamora failed to conquer Oz, her daughters, Lynessa and Zinna swore to avenge her death and claim Oz. In Tin Man, we meet the woodsman. He & an apprentice fall in love. Lynessa finds out and rants.
“I have given her everything, yet all she concerns herself with is that brute of a man.
I have opened up the doors to infinite power and all he can offer her is WOOD!”
No pun seems intended. Lynessa tears his heart out of his chest in a very Temple of Doom manner and turns him into a mechanical man.
I’m a bit unfamiliar with this genre, but are all the women dressed like Vegas showgirls and so buxom that their boobs are almost falling out?
My favorite story was of the Cowardly Lion, Thorne. The Scarecrow one had the most gore, but they were all pretty bloody. Aside from the lingerie clad female characters, these were good, dark tales.
