It begins, again!! I'm going to start working on my next Oz: the Manga adaptation sometime next month. I really can't wait to go full bore into this series. Planned for eight issues, black and white. Let me know if you have any questions!
In my OZ novel, there is mention of a thermonuclear war that ended the Rivin Empire and created the Deadly Desert, as well as caused some of the phenomena and unique monsters that still lurk in corners of the land that will BECOME Oz.
I also trace geological events back to the primal supercontinent of YamaYamaLand ..
A lot of action takes place in Winkie territory which is poorly charted even now.(Some shards from the Rivin Empire engines can still be found).
Of course, Oz pales besides Wonderland and LookinglassLand where time loops, unexplainable phenomena, etc., exist.
