Erik's interview on Arcana's The Steam Engines of Oz

You can also read an exclusive interview with Arcana’s VP of Publishing and co-writer of The Steam Engines of Oz, Erik Hendrix, about the book and Comic Book Day over at the Free Comic Book Day web site by CLICKING HERE!

 

In the interview, Erik mentions of the story and artwork that “our take on Oz throws the rules out the window! Without giving anything away, you can expect new characters as well as beloved favorites, but seen in a completely different light. Expect a fast-paced story with all of the wonder and excitement you expect from an Oz tale with GORGEOUS artwork from Yannis Roumboulias. If you’re not familiar with him, you should be! He really knocked it out of the park with last year’s Deadly Harvest and he is finishing up Zipper Vs Dominatrix: The Slave Trade, which is appearing in Simmons Comics Anthology Volumes 1-3.” And, who pick up The Steam Engines of Oz? “If you like books with strong female leads, great characterization, and something to fill your head with wonder, you’ll love The Steam Engines of Oz.”
