Billy Nunez's Chinese Interpretation Of Wizard Of Oz

L. Frank Baum’s children’s novel, 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' is a classic fantasy tale about a Kansas girl swept into a strange land. The novel has been reinterpreted countless times, and having finished the amazingly dark Image comics adaptation 'No Place Like Home' I wanted something much more sweet and light hearted.

Illustrator Billy Nunez took the world of Oz and transported it to China, featuring Dorothy as a village girl, Lion as a tiger, Tin Man as an animated armor, and Scarecrow as..Well, a scarecrow. Changes include the Yellow Brick Road becoming the Great Wall of China and the guard of the wizard being one cute panda in this awesome, watercolor tinged series. Check out the rest of the frames after the break!
