This is something that is totally diffrent from the expectation of the readers. You wouldn't guess anything in it to happen.

The books cover caught my eye when I was browsing for something interesting. I enjoyed the colored pictures in the front, first off, because it helped me know how the characters looked completely. It's annoying to guess the color of characters in manga/manwha since they are black and white. This is, in truth, the first manwha I've read, but it certainly won't be the last. Dorothy of Oz includes all the old favorites from The Wizard of Oz with a twist. Namu, aka Tin Woodsman, is a cyborg, and acts as he is: a humaniod robot. He has some personality and talks like a person, but he is logical and literal to a point. Abee, aka Scarecrow, is a telekenetic human clone who is always using malapropism. But his mistakes are very lovable and he himself is sweet. Tail, aka Cowardly Lion, is a lion chimera. He often looks like and idiot and those of us who have read the book agree that he can be mistaken for a girl with his actions and hairstyle, but I like him. He makes me laugh. Mara Shin, aka Dorothy, is a girl from Korea who hates being called Dorothy, though no one seems to listen. She sees the yellow brick road, and so is included in some sort of legend of Oz. The story starts off with these four and Mara's dog Toto walking on the road with Tail complaining of hunger. The first exploit the go on was both amazing and comical, and I throughly enjoyed my read. I would recommend this book to anyone who reads manga or manwha because it's funny but can be serious too, a sometimes hard combination to come by. So, as I wait for the next book, I bid you adieu.
