4.0 out of 5 stars The Popeye/Alice Connection, 13 May 2012
This review is from: ROGER LANGRIDGES SNARKED TP VOL 01 (Paperback)
Set in an unnamed kingdom where the characters from Wonderland and Looking-Glass Land coexist with the mad mariners of "The Hunting of the Snark," Roger Langridge's new comedy/adventure series is an inspired Popeye-meets-Lewis Carroll mashup.

It's a classic quest story: Princess (soon to be Queen) Scarlett, the 8-year-old heroine, has to rescue her missing father, the Red King, from the three wicked royal advisors who've quietly ousted him in a palace coup. Her destination: Snark Island, a monster habitat and de facto political prison hidden from the rest of the world. Her unlikely allies: the Walrus and the Carpenter, a pair of hand-to-mouth con men dragged kicking and screaming into the potentially lethal adventure of a lifetime. Their adversary: the Gryphon, an implacable thug hired to hunt down Scarlett and her baby brother, Prince Rusty, at any cost.

This is a fun read for all ages, especially for those who've already immersed themselves in the satirical, philosophical, and surrealistic world of Lewis Carroll's books, and who can't get enough of the literary Easter eggs in Langridge's panels. (His attractive, lively pen lines are a pleasure to look at on their own.) It's even sweeter for those who catch the "Thimble Theatre" references to Wimpy, Swee'pea, and Olive Oyl -- the last named in a salute that has to be seen to be believed.
