WELCOME TO THE BLOODY BRICK ROAD
The Wizard of Oz is a timeless fantasy story known the world over. Lovecraft, and more notably Cthulhu, have been in our nightmares for more than 100 years. Comic creators have been telling stories in these worlds since the creation of the comic book. I have always loved these universes for years, and that’s what inspired me to create this anthology.
