Wickedy Wicked Wickoo by secondlina Wickedy Wicked Wickoo by secondlina
So, surprising no one, an Oz-themed drawing, specifically, the from the fictional universe of Wicked. I have a slight obsession with all things Oz it seems. (*cought cought Namesake www.namesakecomic.com cought cought*)

So, Glinda and Elphaba. Those guys! What can I say about them? Generally, I love them. I really like the musical version of Wicked. I didn’t enjoy the book as much. I did read the book way before I saw or heard about the musical. But I found it to be a difficult and dry read. A lot of interesting concepts. But it kinda sucked away the magic from Oz, and I think i’m a bit tired of the “dangerously corrupted ex-magical world” trope. Not that i’m saying all magical world should be Utopias.

Thank you for making Elfie pretty! <3 I'm reading Wicked right now, and I do have to agree with you... It seems like an entirely separate world from LFB's Oz, in my opinion.

I kinda feel Wicked (the book) may have been more enjoyable if set in a fully invented new world.

i will agree, same with me... read the book before i knew of the musical. i had to skip about or i loose interest like how i lost it on harry potter n the witching hour lol... the son of a witch was dry too.. the others got me though. the other books by the author were good but the book to wicked did nothing. musical, had been obsessed with since high school n just saw it the other year so i been a big music buff of it for almost 9 years now.... i used to dream up the story in my head from the music till i saw it.. i love looking at the picture you drew, they look young and happy and now popular is in my head.... it is one of the few songs i love singing and learned to play on guitar n piano by ear

I agree with you on the book. I read it and wasn't impressed. Musical is a heck of a lot better!
Adorable drawing! :love:
