Looking at various Marvelous Land of Oz adaptations
After reading the original Oz book, I looked at a few of the pop culture adaptations of the book. So, now that I’ve read Oz book 2, let’s see what adaptations were released for this book.
Marvel Treasury of Oz #2 – The Marvelous Land of Oz – I mentioned last time that in 1975 Marvel and DC collaborated for the first time on an adaptation of MGM’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Marvel did one followup to that book, it was The Marvelous Land of Oz seen here. There was no movie to adapt so they adapted the book, however, they used images and character likenesses from the MGM movie. This is fairly rare, I’d like to track one down one day to give it a read. I bet it’s pretty good.
Tin Man – A 2007 re-imagining of Wizard of Oz by the Sci-Fi Network. This mini-series took many of its plot elements from the second book in the series. It starred Zooey Deschanel as DG (Dorothy Gale), Neal McDonough as Wyatt Cain (Tin Man) and Alan Cumming as Glitch (Scarecrow).
