VANCOUVER (March 22, 2013) – Arcana Comics is preparing for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2013, where we will debut The Steam Engines of Oz, a gorgeous re-imagining of the world of Oz, set 100 years after the events from The Wizard of Oz, a story we all love and cherish.
FCBD, however, is not the end of Oz… not by a longshot! In June, we will be releasing The Steam Engines of Oz issue 1, taking place immediately after the events of the FCBD edition. Don’t worry, though, we’ll have a recap of the FCBD events, PLUS make sure that all readers have read the FCBD story.
