Official Press Release

Experience The Wizard of Oz, Neil Gaiman’s 1602 and More – Only On The Marvel Comics App!

Hey there True Believers, Marvel is pleased to announce that two of our most critically acclaimed series — THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ and MARVEL 1602 — will both make their digital debuts today on the Marvel Comics app. First, writer Eric Shanower and artist Skottie Young’s Eisner-award winning adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s opening chapter of the Oz saga is an exciting reinterpretation of Americana’s most beloved characters.  You may think you know the story, but you haven’t seen Dorothy, Toto and the Yellow Brick Road until you’ve seen them like this!

Next up, New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman’s epic mini-series, Marvel 1602, re-imagines the world’s most iconic super-heroes — Spider-Man, The Hulk and Fantastic Four, to name but a few —  through the prism of the Elizabethan Age…but just how do they fit in a world so unlike their own?  Illustrated a by superstar artist Andy Kubert, 1602 is a brilliant piece of dark fantasy that no reader should miss!
