Limited Edition Copies of the New Dorothy of Oz Comic to Debut at WonderCon

Fans of the beloved “Oz” franchise will get a glimpse of the Emerald City with the official unveiling of the New Dorothy of Oz, limited edition comic book Saturday, April 2 at San Francisco’s 2011 WonderCon.

The comic, produced by publishers IDW and Summertime Entertainment, is the first in a series of five progressive books carefully designed to bridge the gap from the classic L. Frank Baum “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” tale to the upcoming 2012 release of the animated New Dorothy of Oz, based on the book by his great-grandson Roger Stanton Baum.

“There’s a lot of overlap in the worlds of Oz-lovers and Comic book fans, so we figured this was an ideal medium to help set the story framework for where next year’s New Dorothy of Oz film will begin,” said New Dorothy of Oz Transmedia Producer James Jones. “The comic series will continue to reveal what happened in Oz once the wicked witch was gone, and its people fell under the control of a new menacing villain. The film will essentially pick up where the last comic left off.”

Ten lucky Ozians who can’t make the voyage to San Francisco will also win the comic in an exclusive Facebook Fan contest. Entrants must submit a personal video explaining in 60 seconds or less why they are excited about New Dorothy of Oz and why they are the biggest OZ-fans on Facebook. It will run worldwide from Wednesday, March 30 through Wednesday, April 6.

Movie Cast

The animated feature film stars Lea Michele (“Dorothy”), Martin Short (“The Jester”), Jim Belushi (“The no-longer Cowardly Lion”), Dan Aykroyd (“Scarecrow”), Kelsey Grammer (“The Tin Man”), Oliver Platt (“Wiser the Owl”), Hugh Dancy (“Marshall Mallow”), Megan Hilty (“China Princess”) and Patrick Stewart (“Tugg”).
