Oz on the brain... Part 3- Skottie Young

Since I needed to repost a few things...
I thought that I would spend  a little more time with this next illustrator. 
I love his work. I love his style...
Artist Skottie Young.
Skottie is a comic book artist and illustrator who creates for Marvel Comics.
I had always seen his work and much enjoyed it... 
But when I saw his images for the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.. he won me over completely.
For years I wished for someone to come along and
redo the series in a graphic novel.
Then it happened...
His series The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the follow up 
graphic novel The Marvelous Land of Oz  went as high as the
New York Times Besst Seller List and  won an Eisner Award.
They have now begun work on the third book in the Oz series "Ozma of Oz".
Here are a few images... Hope it inspires.
