Big Dog Ink Gets Even More Wicked with Legends of Oz

In 2010, Big Dog Ink thrilled the independent comic book market with the release of The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West.  This Wild West retelling of the beloved story of Dorothy Gale and her journey to find the wizard was a hit with fans of the classic tales of Oz and comic book readers alike.  In 2012 Big Dog Ink launched a much anticipated ongoing monthly comic book as a follow up to the critically acclaimed mini-series.  Where the original six issues brought fans familiar characters with a western twist, the ongoing comic delves deeper into the rich mythos of the Land of Oz with new characters pulled straight from the beloved series of children’s books, with a Big Dog Ink style twist of course.

On the heels of this increasingly popular series comes Big Dog Ink’s latest journey into ...

The Secret Life of Crows

I love a skillfully drawn, lovingly written comic book. That’s the long and the short of it.  Oh, expand? Happy to!

What can be said about The Secret Life of Crows that hasn’t already been said? Oh, that’s right: everything, because
this was an incredibly unique bit of fiction!  I haven’t seen a book
like this come into existence in a long time.  The fact is, this review
is a bit behind because once I got it and read it, I needed to digest
what I had read.  Then I left the book alone for a few weeks, although
it was always in the recesses of my mind.  Once I felt I was ready, I
tackled it again and it was like a second culinary delight for my eyes
and mind.

The book was created, drawn, and colored by the amazingly talented Nei Ruffino.
I’ve been a huge fan of Nei’s since I “disc...
