The reviews are rolling in and it’s official — Legends of Oz: The Scarecrow is a hit! This two-issue miniseries, written by Pat Shand with art by Carlos Reno and Kate Finnegan, explores the backstory of one of our most popular characters.
Richard Cardenas of Pop Cults:
A+ for the sheer beauty of the art and the wonderful story of both issues. Though I will add here that I would love to see a deeper origin story for Scarecrow – maybe even a full mini-series to do so. But that is just my wishful thinking.

BOTTOM LINE: MAKES ME WANT MORE
Legends of Oz: The Scarecrow succeeded in not just telling a great self-contained story but also making me want to read the original series. There are changes here that are original and never ruin the classic. With some great art and only two issues long, it provides a nice, short story with insight into the Scarecrow character. Now I just have to track down those original issues…Legends of Oz: The Scarecrow earns 3 out of 5 stars
Dustin Cabeal of Comic Bastards:
This was a fun two part series that is definitely worth picking up. I almost would have liked to have seen it as a double sized issue, but it works separately as well. If you’re a fan of the ongoing or you’re looking to start, this is a great series to pick up.
