Thanks the overwhelming success we have had with this month's Legend title The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, we thought we'd add a second title to the mix to help you fill out that someone special's X-mas stocking.

DONALD DUCK: A CHRISTMAS FOR SHACKTOWN by Carl Barks is yet another perfect pick for both young new readers or the young at heart comic veteran. Carl Barks is regarded as one of the industry's finest storytellers and what better way to check out his work than this beautiful hardcover edition Disney tale.

DONALD DUCK: A CHRISTMAS FOR SHACKTOWN will be available from today at the Legend price of $19.95 until the end of the month or the book sells out. Stock is limited on both books, so get in and grab one while you still can!

December is almost here and with Christmas banging on the door we thought this month's Legend might work nicely as the perfect Xmas gift idea. The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz from Eric Shanower and Skottie Young will bring a smile to anyone's face come Christmas morning or any other morning for that matter!

Shanower's approach adapting Baum's fantasy classic is refreshing for those of us already familar with the original film. He manages to stay much closer to the original text, which only helps to add to the whimsical nature of the story. From start to finish, Shanower has delivered on the amazing storybook style of story telling in which the book is presented.

The illusion of Baum's world is made complete with the stunning brush strokes of Skottie Young. Young's art style is an all too perfect match for this fastasy landscape. The wonder, awe and curiousity that Dorothy goes through during her journey is almost experienced double for that of the reader. Young's art draws you in and transports you away to this amazing land minus the headache and mess of a inland cyclone.

This book makes for the great gift for the young and the young at heart. Wanting a title to help introduce a son or daughter, niece or nephew into the wonderful world of comics? There is hardly a better book to do so then this! And if not for someone else, this title is the best way to help remind you of the wide eyed wonder of what it was like reading a comic for the first time as a child.

If this Legend ends up being to your liking, there is a few other titles available in the Oz line:
-The Marvelous Land Of Oz
-Ozma Of Oz
-Dorothy And The Wizard of Oz

As always, the ALL STAR LEGEND will be available for 30 days (or until stock sells out) at the discounted price. As this will be a limited stock promotion there is strictly "no holds" on the legend,  first in, best read! No further discount applies to the book as it's a pretty good chance it will already be cheaper than the US cover price! The discount also only applies to the volume listed, not the entire series of trades.

If you have any questions, you know where to ask them. You can start to buy the Legend from this Thursday the 29st of November.

All Star Legends. The legendary titles of the highest recommendation.
