The Alternate Reality Wizard of Oz Is Perverse Fun

This concept art of a stranger, grittier Wizard of Oz depicts the Cowardly Lion as goth, the Emerald City as the setting for Left 4 Dead, and Dorothy as a smack addict. Poppies are a helluva drug.

These quirky re-imaginings are from ConceptArt.org's Character of the Week contest. You can see the rest of the (more wholesome, but still aesthetically rewarding) entries here.

Two things I am sick of:

1. Wholesome/innocent intellectual properties made dark and gritty.

2. Horrifying/scary intellectual properties made cute.

I'm all for reinterpretations but I prefer them to be more clever than the flipping of one bit.
