Synopsis: Polychrome has arrived to save the Emerald City from all who threaten to harm it, and many of its citizens already worship this glorious and powerful deity. But Dorothy Gale has a feeling that Polychrome’s promises of peace and resurrection are too good to be true. But can she do anything to stop the Goddess from taking control?

 

The Story

Picking the story up from the last issue. The Goddess Polychrome has returned from her long exile and has took over the Throne of Emerald City. Meanwhile, Dorothy Gale doesn’t trust that any of Polychrome’s promises are true and asks Adraste and Glinda to try and find out as much as they can about the Goddess. However, when the City of Oz is attacked by a group of undead wizards Glinda and Adraste learn from one of them that it was those Wizards that defeated Polychrome the first time and learn about where she was imprisoned. Acting on this information Dorothy, Adraste, Glinda, Tin Man, and Toto travel to a far-off island to figure out some answers to their questions.

 

The Artwork

The art team do a great job on this issue. I loved the character drawing of polychrome and the god-like shimmer that they enveloped her in. Also great was the attack of the undead wizards as well as Dorothy’s journey through the rainbow towards the close of the issue.

 

Overall

David Wohl continues to tell an impressive story and continues to build on the foundations of the world originated by the great L. Frank Baum. I loved the conversation at the start of the book where Adraste and Gilda learn about Polychrome’s past while trying to figure out if she has a weakness.

Overall. This is another great Oz series from the folk at Zenescope and I look forward to reading the next issue.
