In L. Frank Baum’s classic “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” the displaced Dorothy clicks her red ruby slippers three times and gets transported back to her home, surrounded by loved ones and people who care about her.
Dee, the star of Angelo’s “No Place Like Home,” isn’t quite so lucky. Instead of finding herself in a magical land of munchkins, witches and jitterbugs, Dee struggles to make ends meet while living in Los Angeles. She does, however, return home, but it’s not thanks to magical footwear. Her parents’ death in a tornado takes Dee back to Emeraldsville where natural disasters aren’t the only things causing the townspeople to expire. As people begin to die mysteriously, the events of a night in 1959 lead to some truly horrific events.
The first arc, comprising of 5 monthly issues priced just £2.25, will be collected as a graphic novel in time for the San Diego Comic-Con in July where Angelo is visiting as a guest creator.
We’ll bring you details of the graphic novel closer to the time. The graphic novel will also include behind the scenes stuff, articles and unpublished art.
