When a tornado transports Dorothy Gale from Lucas, Kan., to the faraway land of Oz, her arrival sets in motion a prophecy about a disastrous event known as The Beast Forever and strikes fear into the land's almighty ruler, the Wizard. On her quest to meet the Wizard in Emerald City, Dorothy encounters witches, an amnesiac soldier, a sheltered little boy and many more mysterious beings who will ultimately shape the future of Oz and Dorothy's place in it.
The only reason this is even linked with "The Wizard of Oz" is to drag in suckers for nostalgia and emo kids who love 'dark' takes on everything.
This has so little to do with Oz that if Baum were still alive he'd sue for the bastardization of his beloved world.
Everyone is horrible in some way. It's as if this is a world composed of only the worst people possible. I fully agree with others who find this repugnant: I would gladly nuke them all just to erase them from existence, as they have no reason to exist other than to be miserable to everyone around them.
This is a world of Oz as written by a manic depressive drug addict.
