The Witches of OZ are searching for a lost weapon of power known as the Veridian Scepter. Their quest leads them to the most unlikeliest of places…the farmlands of Kansas and the home of the unlikeliest of heroes…Dorothy Gale. At long last the last realm of power in the Grimm Fairy Tales universe is revealed…and there’s never been an Oz quite like this.

I seen Oz as a recommended comic book on Google Play and despite my better judgement, I bought it. Just by looking at the cover I was sure it was going to be sexist but I’ll still kinda wanted to read it. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and all that. However, you should totally judge this crappy comic book on it’s misogynistic cover. There’s so much sexual objectification of women in just 27 pages. Dorothy spends most of the comic book in what she’s wearing on the cover and when she’s not wearing that, she’s wearing other awful clothes. And not just Dorothy. The wicked witch is objectified as well.
I’m extremely disappointed in everyone involved in comic book. The core concept of Oz is really cool (Toto is a wolf and I think that’s insanely awesome) but the complete and utter lack of respect for women is inexcusable.
