There have been a few stories inspired by the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum’s children’s fantasy novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the book on which the movie is based. Webtoons has a new incarnation of the fantasy adventure– Escape from Oz.
Just like in the original, there is a yellow brick road that supposedly leads to the all-knowing Wizard who will help visitors escape the perils of this strange new world. Angel’s story is infused with way more humor than the work that inspired it, and some of that humor is just plain wackiness. Dot is still a likable protagonist like Dorothy before her, and it’s not hard to sympathize with her ups, downs, twists, and turns. And there are plenty.
