Talksplode #35 with Skottie Young of ‘Ozma of Oz’ and ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’

Show Notes

We’ve known and been big fans of Skottie Young for a long time, but he’s never actually been on a Talksplode episode until now. Josh Flanagan talks with the Eisner winning artist about his career and origin, as well as how it lead to the offbeat series of books like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, and Ozma of Oz, with writer Eric Shanower. We talk about some of the work Skottie has done for Marvel Comics over the last ten years, and how C.B. Cebulski picked him from a random table at a Chicago comic convention. Then we talk about Skottie’s creator owned work, and his push to sell digital material on his own, as well as his upcoming writing stint in Deadpool Team Up.

Running Time: 01:07:17
