The Wizard of Oz is the quintessential American fairy-tale of hope. Throughout the years the classic story has been told in many forms and different platforms. It seems everybody has a different spin on the public domain franchise. Here is a collection of 25 different illustrated versions of the classic story of the maturing of innocence into womanhood as Dorothy and her posse of motley Oz friends are interpreted by artists that would make Frank Baum proud to see the hybrid of his stories. No matter how offbeat the characters look, the central core theme always remains intact. That is the recipe of a true classic and it will always find a new audience because it is timeless.
